Information on How Dividends are Computed

Requested from HDMF by C. Yu at 05:42 PM on Sep 27, 2021.
Purpose: To understand how PAGIBIG computes my dividends
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2018 - 12/31/2020
Tracking no: #HDMF-606777030762

Yu 05:42 PM, Sep 27, 2021


I'm reviewing my contributions and trying to understand how the dividends are computed using PAGBIG's published divided rates. For example, dividend rates are 6.91%, 6.73%, and 5.62% for 2018, 2019, and 2020 respectively. Do you have any material (even a spreadsheet) that could simulate how I dividends for 2019 and 2020 are computed? I'm using 3 years because I read somewhere that dividends from previous years are also considered.

Please advise. Thanks!

This refers to your eFOI request received on 27 September 2021 sent to the eFOI portal of the Home Development Mutual Fund (Fund) wherein you asked for any material, even a spreadsheet, that could simulate how the dividends for years 2019 and 2020 were computed.

Atty. Po, thank you for the spreadsheets. Unfortunately, I am still unable to reconcile the details from my VIRTUAL PAGIBIG based on them. 

Total Dividends -> 11,023.98 
Total Savings	-> 36,623.98 
2019 Dividends -> 1,824.64 
2020 Dividends -> 1,784.15 

I think this is most likely due to the fact that in the simulation,
1. Transaction date is fixed on 20th of each month
2. There's no angle on compounding interest

With this, can we tweak the spreadsheet based on my details?

FROM BRANCH PRINTOUT - Balance Forwarded as of 12/31/2018:					
Cumulative Contributions Balance -> 18,200.00 
Dividends -> 	4,090.12 
Cumulative Dividends Balance	-> 4,090.12 
Cumulative Balance -> 22,290.12
