Today Pag-IBIG is one of the strongest financial institutions in the country with an asset level of over Php 29 billion. Active membership stands at 1.8 million nationwide. Total membership base is 2.1 million. As a shelter agency, Pag-IBIG has made possible the construction of over 95,000 housing units all over the Philippines under its various housing load programs.

The Pag-IBIG Overseas Program was launched to give Overseas Filipinos the opportunity to save for their future and at the same time giving them the chance to avail of a housing loan as much as Php 500,000 with interest rates ranging from 9%-17% per annum depending on the load amount.
