MANILA, Philippines — Vice President and housing czar Jejomar C. Binay announced Wednesday that domestic workers or “kasambahays” can now become members of the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG) and can avail themselves of multi-purpose, calamity and housing loans.

Binay said employers are mandated to register their househelps as members of Pag-IBIG and to pay a counterpart contribution.

“Under the law, domestic workers earning P1,500 and below shall contribute 1 percent of their salary, while those earning P1,500 and above, shall contribute 2 percent of their salary. Their employers are required to contribute 2 percent as counterpart,” said Binay, the chairman of the Pag-IBIG Board of Trustees."

Life opinion
Good news ito para sa mga household. House Bill 553 or the Magna Carta for Household Helpers and its counterpart bill in the Senate, Senate Bill 78 or the Act of Providing for Additional Benefits and Protection to House Helpers. Marami matutulungan at makakakuha pa sila ng mga benefits just like regular employee.
