Globe's GCASH now lets you pay your Pag-Ibig contributions and housing loans via mobile phone!

Globe Telecom subsidiary G-Xchange, Inc. (GXI), the operator of mobile commerce service GCASH, was recently tapped by Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) or the Pag-IBIG Fund, to allow its over 12 Million members to transact with Pag-IBIG via GCASH, making it easy and more convenient for them to facilitate their Pag-IBIG transactions. More after the jump.

With the tie-up, Pag-IBIG members can now pay for their monthly mandatory savings and housing loans anytime, anywhere using their GCASH wallets linked to their Globe or TM phones, eliminating the need to go to a Pag-IBIG office or an accredited Pag-IBIG payment center.

"Our partnership with GCASH is truly a milestone for Pag-IBIG. Using GCASH as a safe and secure payment channel, we expect to grow our membership base further as well as the volume of our membership savings premium payments as it gives our members an alternative, especially the kasambahays, an option to send in their monthly mandatory savings and loan payments minus the hassle of queuing," said Atty. Darlene Marie B. Berberabe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Pag-IBIG Fund.

"We hope that this new service will provide our kababayans especially those in the low income bracket like househelpers or their employers a more convenient way of paying their Pag-IBIG contributions," Berberabe added.

GXI President Paolo Baltao is likewise excited to venture into another relevant use of mobile money and technology to deliver public service. "This validates and strengthens our thrust to make the lives of Filipinos easier by providing access to a hassle-free and secure payment technology via the mobile phone. Using GCASH, subscribers can conveniently remit their Pag-IBIG monthly mandatory savings and pay their housing loans in seconds without having to leave their homes or travel distances just to pay Pag-IBIG. As long as they have enough funds in their GCASH wallets, payments will be swift and easy, something that's very apt for the mobile and dynamic lifestyle of business owners, kasambahays or their employers."

In order to get GCASH, a subscriber just needs to dial *143# and select 'GCASH' then choose 'Register' using their Globe or TM SIMs. Converting cash to GCASH wallets is equally easy. Funding may be done via online bank transfers (www.globe.com.ph/gcash), mobile banking with BPI (by dialing *119# after enrollment) and Unionbank, BancNet ATMs with minimal fees or through any of more than 7,000 GCASH outlets nationwide FREE of service charge.

To remit Pag-IBIG payments, members can pay either P100 (Monthly Mandatory Savings) or P500 (Modified Pag-IBIG II) by dialing *143# on their mobile phones, selecting 'GCASH' and choosing 'Pay Bills'. For housing loan, just include the 20-digit payment reference number. Members can also pay using their smartphones via the GCASH Mobile App available on iTunes, Google Play, and Blackberry World. All Pag-IBIG payments are processed within 2-3 banking days.

Paying Pag-IBIG contributions and housing loans via GCASH is FREE of charge up to December 18, 2013. A minimal service fee of P5.00 will be charged per Pag-IBIG transaction via GCASH afterwards.
