There is no single right way to send a message to Pag-IBIG, but here’s a sample that you can modify as needed:

Recipient: contactus@pagibigfund.gov.ph

Subject: Request for Pag-IBIG MDF copy

Contents:

Good day!

I am Jose E. Dela Cruz, a Pag-IBIG member since 2019 with Pag-IBIG MID Number 120102030405.

I want to request a softcopy of my Pag-IBIG MDF since it is required for my new job.

Kindly see the attached valid ID.

Sincerely yours,

Jose E. Dela Cruz

Can I make a handwritten copy of my MDF?

You can fill out a blank MDF if you have the complete details regarding your membership, which you can download here: https://www.pagibigfund.gov.ph/document/pdf/dlforms/providentrelated/PFF039_MembersDataForm_V08.pdf.

Before doing so, ask your employer if they need the copy provided by Pag-IBIG, or you can fill out a blank form.

You can also fill out the pdf document using Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Fill & Sign.

Just make sure to check double the information that you have supplied to the document.

Is RTN different from Pag-IBIG MID Number?

RTN or Registration Tracking Number is different from Pag-IBIG MID number.

Once you have just registered as a new member of the Pag-IBIG Fund, you will be given the RTN, which is temporary until you are given the permanent Pag-IBIG MID number.

It has the same 12-digit format as the Pag-IBIG MID number, and it can be used for paying contributions and other transactions until you receive your permanent MID.

When is the Pag-IBIG MID Number being issued?

You can verify the issuance of your Pag-IBIG MID Number as early as two days after registering as a new Pag-IBIG Fund member.

If you are claiming your printed MDF at a Pag-IBIG branch three days after registration, your MID number will also be indicated on your MDF.

Do I need an appointment to get MDF at Pag-IBIG Branch?

You can currently walk into a Pag-IBIG branch for any transaction, but note that your MDF can only be issued three days after online registration.

If you decide to register as a member by submitting a filled-out MDF, there is no guarantee that you can get your validated or printed MDF that includes your MID number on the same day.

Pag-IBIG will launch the #SanaAll appointment system this April 2022, which should improve all transactions across all Pag-IBIG services.

Hopefully, this would make it easier to process documents and applications and may not require you to visit a physical Pag-IBIG branch to claim a document.

How long does it take for Pag-IBIG to issue MDF?

If you are a new applicant, you can get your MDF as soon as you have accomplished the online form.

If you requested via email, it would be about three days from when your message has been acknowledged.

There may be additional days depending on the volume of emails Pag-IBIG receives and needs to respond to.

If you go to a Pag-IBIG branch, you can request your MDF within that same day.

What are the valid IDs accepted at Pag-IBIG?

The following are considered as valid identification cards when transacting at Pag-IBIG:

  • AFP ID
  • Alien Certification of Registration/Immigrant Certificate of Registration
  • Driver’s License
  • DSWD Certification
  • GOCC ID
  • GSIS e-Card

Do I need to renew my Pag-IBIG MDF?

Yes, you need to renew or update it as soon as there has been any change in the information provided in the MDF.

You need to use the MCIF or Member’s Change of Information Form and submit it to a Pag-IBIG branch to make the update.

Before you do so, try sending an email to see if it will do to save time and effort.

Some examples wherein you need to update your member information were when you changed employers, employment status, civil status, etc.

Reasons why you do not have an MDF

The most common reason why a Pag-IBIG member “does not have” an MDF is that they do not have the original one, as it may have been lost, submitted as a requirement, etc.

If you applied online, it might mean that you forgot to download a copy of it, or you have experienced technical difficulties.

The data for the MDF will always be in the records of Pag-IBIG, so you can request a copy of it just in case you need one.

What is the purpose of the Pag-IBIG MDF?

The MDF serves as proof of your registration as a Pag-IBIG member.

You only technically become a Pag-IBIG member once the first contribution under your account is posted.

You can also request for an MDF to check if your membership data is up to date, that is, to see if any information is outdated.

New employers may request your TRN, MID number, or the MDF to use the HR.

This is similar to your PMRF from PhilHealth being requested, even if you can provide your PhilHealth number.

How much is the fee for requesting MDF from Pag-IBIG branch?

There is no fee to get your printed Member’s Data Form from the Pag-IBIG branch.

Downloading the form online and submitting it is likewise free of charge.

Conclusion

It is effortless to get a copy of your MDF if you need one.

Remember to keep a copy for yourself after your registration for future use.
