The PAG-IBIG death benefits is one of the benefits that every PAG-IBIG member owes to receive. The beneficiaries can receive the benefits only if the deceased individual is still a member of the organization at the time of death.
As indicated in the New Family Code, the Provident and Death benefits of the deceased member will be divided among the legal heirs. The beneficiaries can file their claim where the deceased member is paying the contributions.
Here are the documents needed for submission:
- Death certificate of the deceased member issued by the NSO
- Certification of payments or funeral receipt
- Completed and notarized Proof of Surviving Legal Heirs
- Completed Application for Provident Benefits Claim
- Birth certificates of the beneficiaries issued by NSO
- Proof of relationship of the claimant to the deceased PAG-IBIG member
- Certificate of No Marriage, if the deceased member is single
- 2 valid iDs with photo of claimant
- Special Power of Attorney, if the claimant is an authorized representative
After filing all the required documents, the claimant will receive the CAR of the Claims Acknowledgment Receipt. The date of release is written on the CAR. The PAG-IBIG may call your attention if additional documents are needed or during evaluation of the documents.
Once the claim is approved and released, the claimant can get the check by presenting 2 valid IDs and the CAR. The maximum amount that the beneficiaries may receive for the death benefit is Php6,000. But, the amount may vary depending on the TAV of the member. You may download the Pag-IBIG provident form here.
