MANILA, Philippines – ang Home Development Mutual Fund o Pag-IBIG Fund sa mga employers na mayroong unremitted contributions para sa kanilang mga empleyado na mag-avail ng penalty condonation program ng ahensiya.

Sa isang kalatas, sinabi ng Pag-IBIG na sa ilalim ng penalty condonation program, maaaring ayusin o plantsahin ng mga employers ang kanilang obligasyon, kapuwa bago at sa kasalukuyang panahon ng pandemiya, “free from any monthly penalty charge on delayed remittances.”

“We at Pag-IBIG Fund recognize the significant role that the business community plays in allowing Filipino workers to gain Pag-IBIG membership and in helping our nation continue to recover from the pandemic. That is why we are providing the means for employers to settle the unremitted Pag-IBIG contributions of their employees free from penalty charges,” ayon kay Department of Human Settlements at Urban Development Secretary at chairperson ng 11-member Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees na Jose Rizalino Acuzar.

Sa ilalim ng charte ng ahensiya, “employers are responsible for the registration and remittance of their employees’ mandatory monthly Pag-IBIG contributions, which consist of the employee’s contributions and the employer’s counterpart share. “

Sinabi naman ni Pag-IBIG CEO Acmad Rizaldy Moti na ang penalty condonation program ay “purposely broad in scope to aid in boosting economic activity.”

Sinabi pa rin niya na “in addition to having the penalty charges on their delayed remittances completely waived, employers who are unable to settle their obligations in full may choose a payment plan with a low monthly interest charge of 0.5%.”

Kung ang unremitted contributions aniya ay nangyari noong panahon ng pandemiya o mula Marso 2020 pataas, ang interest charge sa payment plans ay mawi-waived.

“With the program’s favorable terms, employers are provided the means to update the monthly contributions of their employees, while maintaining a healthy cash flow to sustain their operations,” ayon kay Moti. Kris Jose
