Pag-IBIG offers the provision of home financing programs for both new and repossessed (or acquired) housing properties that were developed by Pag-IBIG.  Active members have the option to purchase an acquired Pag-IBIG property at negotiated rates.

Acquired assets are foreclosed properties (house and lot) that are auctioned off by Pag-IBIG to the public at cheaper rates.  These are not “brand new” houses; these are properties that are repossessed due to non-payment of the original owners.  Once auctioned by Pag-IBIG, it becomes a possible alternative for other active members that are unable to take on the costs of a brand new housing unit.

If you are thinking of applying for a Pag-IBIG housing loan, it may be good to weigh your options and see if an acquired asset is something you can consider.

Here are the steps and requirements needed when applying for a Pag-IBIG loan for acquired properties under negotiated sale:

  1. Reserve the property and pay the Php 1,000 reservation fee (non-refundable/non-transferrable). Bring one valid ID and choose among the following modes of payment:
  • Cash – 30% discount; payment term of 1 month.
  • Installment – 20% discount; up tp 12 months only, with 12% interest rate per annum.
  • Housing Loan – 10% discount, for qualified members of Pag-IBIG Fund; up to 30 years, provided that borrower’s age shall not exceed 70 years old at date of loan maturity.
  1. For purchase through housing loan, submit the complete documentary requirements within 30 calendar days from payment of reservation fee and pay the processing fee of Php 2,000 and Documentary Stamp Tax of Php 100.00.
  2. Receive the Notice of Approval of Loan and pay the one (1) year advance insurance premiums within 30 days.
  3. Execute and submit the notarized Deed of Conditional Sale and other mortgage documents evidencing the loan in favor of the Fund.

So the DFA needs our help in rebuilding their database and we can do so by presenting a copy of our PSA birth certificate when renewing our passports.  Do you have a copy of your birth certificate yet?

I used to keep several copies of my birth certificate in my desk; these were printed on the old yellowish sheet with NSO’s logo on the upper left hand (or was it right?) corner of the document.  When my passport was due for renewal last June 2016, I was advised by my friend to secure a new copy of my birth certificate before going to the DFA for my application.

“Bakit, may expiration ba ang birth certificate? Di ba wala naman?”

Of course, my birth certificate does not have an expiration date!  What my friend was trying to tell me (pala!) was that the PSA (formerly NSO), regularly updates (or maybe, reprints) the copies of our documents on security papers to discourage the circulation of unauthorized and fake copies made elsewhere.  Embassies and other government agencies are duly advised whenever the PSA is set to release certificates printed on new security papers so that these offices would know when the documents being presented to them are updated copies or old files (like my copies of my birth certificate).

So if you think you still have several copies of your birth certificate left in your stash, check them now to make sure these are updated ones.  Foremost, it must bear the new seal of the PSA, and not the former NSO.  If your document is worn out, has some minute tears, or the entries are hardly readable, please get yourself new copies.

I got my latest copies from PSAHelpline.ph.  It’s an online, one-stop birth certificate ordering site for all types of PSA documents you will ever need: birth, marriage, CENOMAR, and death certificates.  They deliver nationwide too so you won’t have to go to a PSA office anymore.

Birth, marriage, and death certificates cost Php 365.00 per copy while the CENOMAR costs Php 465.00 per copy.  Visit their user-friendly website now so you can place your orders ahead of the others!

Word of the wise: As soon as you have confirmed an appointment with the DFA for your passport application or renewal, get new copies of your PSA birth certificate and marriage certificate (for married female applicants who wish to change their last name in their passport).  Don’t wait until the last minute to do this because it’s a primary documentary requirement, especially if your old passport is not an e-passport.

The President signed the Telecommuting Act a few days before Christmas day last year.  Telecommuting is a work arrangement where employees are allowed to perform their tasks outside of the office, often from home, or a location close to home.  One only needs to have a stable internet connection, a laptop, and a mobile phone – equipment that will help him deliver his assignments as if he were working in an office.  It is called telecommuting because instead of traveling to the office, you now only travel (or commute) via telecommunication links such as phone, email, or video conferencing.

Now some of us may have already done this in the past – I know I have!  That is why I am glad that telecommuting is now an official policy that all private companies and businesses can implement.

The law, now known as Republic Act 11165, provides employers the option to have their workers perform their jobs from home on a voluntary basis.  As mentioned above, this is nothing new to Manila-based employees and maybe to some who work in private establishments based in the provinces.  Unbeknownst to us, telecommuting is a widely accepted work policy in other parts of the world.  Below are some interesting facts we gathered from the GlobalWorkplaceAnalytics.com and FlexJobs.com regarding telecommuting:

  • About 4.3 million employees worldwide (3.2% of the workforce) now work from home at least half the time.
  • Some Fortune 1000 companies have ‘face-lifted’ their office interiors to consider the fact that most, if not all, employees will be working outside of their building at one point.

Aren’t you glad telecommuting has finally been turned into law in our country this year?

While we wait for the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of this law, we summarized four important things we all need to know and understand the Telecommuting Act:

  1. Private business and company employers can offer their employees the telecommuting program on a voluntary basis.
  2. The work-from-home arrangement between the employer and his employees must be made based on minimum labor standards.  All work hours (within the work-from-home agreement) must be properly logged, monitored, and compensated.
  3. All other wage policies apply to the work rendered in telecommuting such as overtime, rest days, and leave entitlements.  They must also be given night shift differentials, regular holidays, and special non-working holidays.
  4. Their workload must still be corresponding to their job description, not more than (or less than) what their contemporaries at the office are assigned with.  They should be provided with proper training and afforded the same career development opportunities.

The telecommuting scheme will be tested by the DOLE through a pilot program for selected industries.  The test will not last more than 3 years.

What are your thoughts on this new labor law?  We’d be glad to hear from you!

SSS and PhilHealth Contribution Tables for 2019

1 jan 08

Happy New Year, fellow SSS and PhilHealth members!

We are sharing with you this year’s contribution tables to serve as your guide, especially if you are a kasambahay employer and a voluntary member.

SSS Contribution Table 2019 for Employed Members, OFWs, and voluntary members:

sss-contribution-table-ofw-voluntary-self-employed-2019

PhilHealth Contribution Table 2019 for Employed Members

philhealth

Last year, PhilHealth increased its monthly premium contributions for employed members.  Effective January 2018, an employed member’s contribution is 2.75% computed straight based on the monthly basic salary, with a salary floor of Php 10,000 and a ceiling of Php 40,000, equally shared by the employer and the employee.

Kasambahay contributions shall still be shouldered by the employer if the kasambahay is receiving a monthly salary of no more than Php 5,000.  Otherwise, the kasambahay shall pay his or her share.

PhilHealth Contribution Table 2019 for OFWs

The Php 2,400/year contribution rate still applies to OFWs under the OWP (Overseas Workers’ Program) applicable to land-based OFWs.

They have the option to pay the annual amount in full or make two payments of Php 1,200 every six months.

PhilHealth Contribution Table for Self-employed, Individually Paying Members

If the member’s monthly income is Php 25,000 and below, the contribution rate is Php 2,400 per year.

If his monthly income is above Php 25,000, his contribution rate is Php 3,600 per year.

They may choose to pay on a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis.

PhilHealth Contribution Table for Sponsored Program Members

A sponsored member’s annual premium is Php 2,400.

He is also entitled to identified in-patient hospital care (including the Z Benefit Package), out-patient care services, and other health care services provided by accredited health care centers and providers.

A lot of people have been asking when the PhilSys ID (or National ID) will be implemented so we did some research to find out.

Earlier, we mentioned that the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) has been assigned to manage the implementation of the national ID system. Last October 2018, the PSA announced that they shall begin a “proof of concept” trial period for the issuance of the said identification cards.

In order to test the process created for the project, one million unconditional cash transfer beneficiaries of the DSWD will be asked to register for national IDs.  They shall also be given the privilege to begin using their national IDs ahead of other Pinoys.  The POC shall be carried out by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) by virtue of an agency-to-agency agreement with the PSA.  This will last around six months and is set to start this month.

From this test run, the PSA hopes to identify areas of the system that need adjustments.  Any fine-tuning needed for the registration process or technical specification shall be indicated in the contract prior to the full implementation of the program.

This year, PSA is targeting to register the first six million Filipinos that are listed as Unconditional Cash Transfer Beneficiaries (UCTB).  And by 2020, they shall target the registration of 25 million Filipinos and resident aliens every year.  By 2023, all Pinoys shall have his own PhilSys ID.

For updates on the National ID system, follow our blog.

Are you excited to receive this year’s 13th-month pay?  I know a lot of employees are eagerly awaiting the release of this yearly windfall.  It is always good to have extra funds for the holidays.

Today we will be sharing with you the top 10 things you need to know about your 13th-month pay.  If this is your first time to receive such, it is best that you are aware of its basic details such as the covered months of the pay, how it is computed, who are entitled to it, and when it should be released to the employees.

These pointers were lifted from the Handbook on Workers’ Statutory Monetary Benefits published by the DOLE.

  1. COVERAGE

All employers are required to pay their rank-and-file employees’ 13th-month pay, regardless of the nature of their employment and irrespective of the methods by which their wages are paid, provided they worked for at least one month during a calendar year.

The 13th-month pay should be given to the employees not later than December 24 or every year.

  1. DEFINITION OF RANK-AND-FILE EMPLOYEES

The Labor Code, as amended, distinguishes a rank-and-file employee from a managerial employee.  A managerial employee is one who is vested with powers or prerogatives to lay down and execute management policies and/or to hire, transfer, suspend, layoff, recall, discharge, assign, or discipline employees, or to effectively recommend such managerial actions.  All employees not falling within this definition are considered rank-and-file employees.

The above distinction shall be used as a guide for the purpose of determining who are rank-and-file employees entitled to the thirteenth-month pay.

  1. MINIMUM AMOUNT

The thirteenth-month pay shall not be less than 1/12th of the total basic salary earned by an employee in a calendar year.

What are included as basic salary?

  • Remunerations or earnings paid by his employer for services rendered.

What are NOT included as basic salary?

  • Allowances
  • Monetary benefits which are not considered or integrated as part of the regular or basic salary.
  • Cash equivalent of unused vacation leaves and sick leave credits, overtime pay, night shift differential, and holiday pay.
  • Cost of Living Allowance (COLA).

However, these salary-related benefits should be included as part of the basic salary in the computation of the 13th-month pay if these are treated as part of the basic salary of the employees, through individual or collective agreement, company practice, or policy.

  1. FORMULA AND COMPUTATION OF 13TH MONTH PAY

TOTAL BASIC SALARY EARNED DURING THE YEAR

——————————————————————      = PROPORTIONATE 13TH MONTH PAY

12 MONTHS

 EXEMPTED EMPLOYERS

The following types of employers are not covered by PD 851 (Presidential Decree 851 Requiring All Employers to Pay their Employees the 13th-month Pay):

  • The government and any of its political subdivisions, including government-owned and controlled corporations, except those corporations operating essentially as private subsidiaries of the government;
  • Employers who are already paying their employees 13th-month pay or more in a calendar year or its equivalent at the time of the issuance of the PD 851;
  • Persons in the personal service of another in relation to such workers; and
  • Employers of those who are paid on purely commission, boundary, or task basis, and those who are paid a fixed amount for performing specific work, irrespective of the time consumed in the performance thereof (except those workers who are paid on piece-rate basis, in which case their employer shall grant them 13th month pay).
  1. TIME OF PAYMENT

The 13th-month pay shall be paid not later than December 24 of every year.  An employer, however, may give to his or her employees one-half (1/2) of the 13th-month pay before the opening of the regular year and the remaining half on or before December 24 of every year.

The frequency of payment of this monetary benefit may be the subject of an agreement between the employer and the recognized/collective bargaining agent of the employees.

  1. 13th MONTH PAY FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF EMPLOYEES
  • Employees who are paid on piecework basis are entitled to the 13th-month pay.
  • Employees who are paid a fixed or guaranteed wage plus commission are also entitled to the 13th-month pay, based on their earnings during the calendar year (ex: on both their fixed or guaranteed wage and commission).
  • Employees with multiple employers.

Government employees working part-time in a private enterprise, including private educational institutions, as well as employees working in two or more private firms, whether on a full-time or part-time basis, are entitled to the 13th-month pay from all their private employers, regardless of their total earnings from each of their employers.

  1. 13TH MONTH PAY OF RESIGNED OR SEPARATED EMPLOYEE

An employee who has resigned or whose services are terminated at any time before the time of payment of the 13th-month pay is entitled to this monetary benefit in proportion to the length of time he or she has worked during the year, reckoned from the time he or she has started working during the calendar year up to the time of his or her resignation or termination from the service.

Thus, if he or she worked only from January to September, his or her proportionate 13th-month pay should be equal to 1/12th of his or her total basic salary earned during that period.

  1. NON-INCLUSION IN REGULAR WAGE

The 13th-month pay is not part of the regular wage of employees for purposes of determining overtime and premium payments, fringe benefits, contributions to the State Insurance Fund, Social Security System, National Health Insurance Program, and private retirement plans.

  1. COVERAGE FROM INCOME TAX OF THE 13TH MONTH PAY

The 13th-month pay and other benefits, such as productivity incentives and Christmas bonus, not exceeding Php 90,000.00 are exempted from taxation.

PhilHealth members no longer need to guess how much of their hospital bills will be shouldered by PhilHealth.  With the Case Rate Search app, you can begin exploring the different medical cases and corresponding rates that are covered by PhilHealth and take the guesswork out of the entire billing process.

Before the app was made available, PhilHealth members would have to wait for the hospital’s billing department to facilitate their accounts before they can get a view of PhilHealth’s participation in their hospital bill.  This is a concern for most members and has even become a reason for others to refuse confinement.  When patients are unaware of how much of their bill PhilHealth will be paying, they become concerned with their expenses and decide against having themselves admitted for proper treatment and observation.

Although PhilHealth’s participation is not applied on the patient’s bill until the attending physician has given a final diagnosis, it is still best to have an advance view of the possible deductions that the patient can look forward to.  This serves as a guideline for the patient and his family, assuring them that they will not have to shoulder all of the medical expenses on their own.

To download the app, make sure your Android phone or tablet is connected to the internet.  Launch the Play Store app and search for the ‘PhilHealth ACR’ mobile application.  Tap on the ‘download’ button and wait until the app is successfully installed in your device.  Non-android users can access the search engine at the PhilHealth’s website at www.philhealth.gov.ph.  Downloading and use of the app is free of charge.

Tell us about your experience when using the PhilHealth Case Rate Search app!
