Good day HDMF, I have just registered a new business this month, and do I immediately need to fulfill employer registration or can I comply with it later?

This refers to your eFOI request received on 20 January 2023 via the eFOI portal of the Home Development Mutual Fund (Fund) wherein you inquired of the need of a newly-registered business to fulfill its Pag-IBIG Fund registration. 

Rule V, Section 5 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act No. 9679 Or the “Home Development Mutual Fund Law” provides for the mandatory registration of the employer prior to start of their business, to wit:

Section 5. Registration of Employers. All new employers shall first register with the Fund prior to the start of their business operations. Provided, that all employers who are not subject of mandatory coverage prior to R.A. 9679 and these Rules, shall register for coverage before January 1,2010, unless a different date is set by the Board by resolution.

For the period and the process of employer registration, we deemed it proper to raise this matter to the Operating Units Concerned (OUC) – Member Services Support Unit.

Attached herewith, as provided by the OUC, are the following documents which are part of the requirements to be submitted for Employer Registration: (1) Employer’s Data Form (Annex A); and (2) the Specimen Signature Form (Annex B). You may proceed at any Pag-IBIG Fund Branch near you and submit the attached documents together with the requirements which are also listed down in the Employer’s Data Form. The Branch will then advise you on when you can start paying contributions based on the submitted requirements. 

In compliance with Section 6.6.1 of the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) Memorandum Circular No. 2019-002, series of 2019 entitled Guidelines on the Implementation of the Citizen’s Charter in Compliance with Republic Act 11032, otherwise known as the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018,” and Its Implementing Rules and Regulations, may we kindly request your thoughts or feedback on how we can improve your experience by filling out the Feedback Form in this link: FOI Request Feedback Form (google.com)
