The Pag IBIG MID Number (short for Pag-IBIG Membership Identification Number) is always required each time you transact with the Pag-IBIG Fund—whether it’s for a loan or benefit application or contribution/MP2 savings payment.

You may be also asked for your Pag-IBIG MID number as a pre-employment requirement in your new job.

Whatever your reason is for finding your MID number, you can recover it through different online and offline channels.

You can recover your lost or forgotten Pag-IBIG number by trying one of these six Pag-IBIG number verification methods:

Whatever option you use, provide the details of your concern together with your full name, birthdate, mother’s maiden name, and/or past and present employers.

If you’re making a request via email or Facebook, attach a clear image of your valid ID. These are required to ensure that the Pag-IBIG number is given to the right person. 

Let’s now discuss these Pag IBIG number verification methods in detail one by one.

If you don’t have an RTN and you need to retrieve your Pag-IBIG number fast, the best verification method to use is the Pag-IBIG live chat service.

Here’s how you can talk to a Lingkod Pag-IBIG chat agent to get your MID number:

  1. Go to the Pag-IBIG Fund website.
  2. On the lower right corner of the homepage, click on the icon that says “Chat with us.” 
  3. Fill out the online form with your information. You can skip the MID field.
  4. Select “Member ID Number” from the dropdown menu under “What is your concern?”
  5. Click the Submit button.
  6. Read the Q&As about the Pag-IBIG number. If none of the info answers your question, click the No button.
  7. Type your message with the following details:
  • Birthdate
  • Current employer
  • Previous employer/s (if any)
  • Your concern or question about your Pag-IBIG MID number

A live chat agent will reply and assist with your concern shortly.

  • Full married name (if you’re female)
  • Birthdate
  • Birthplace
  • Full mother’s maiden name
  • Complete company name and address of your current employer

Editor’s note: Below is the exact template I used for my email inquiry. Feel free to use it if you’re someone like me who have jumped from formal employment to self-employment and forgot to continue paying for my Pag-IBIG contributions.

Good day!

I’m now self-employed and it’s been years since I last paid for my Pag-IBIG contributions. 

Can I ask for my Pag-IBIG number?

Here are my personal details:

  1. Name:
  2. Birthday:
  3. Birthplace:
  4. Mother’s Maiden Name:
  5. Mobile Number:
  6. Current Address:

I have also attached a scanned copy of my passport for verification purposes. 

Thank you!


Your name

A Pag-IBIG agent will reply to your email inquiry with an email transaction reference number. Provide this number when asking more questions or following up on the status of your Pag-IBIG number verification request.

Editor’s note: I sent mine on a Friday afternoon and received a reply containing my Pag-IBIG number by Monday. Perhaps the response would have been quicker had I sent an inquiry earlier that week. If you want an instant response, however, I recommend calling their hotline instead (more on this later).


4. Send a private message via the Pag-IBIG Fund Facebook page.

Another convenient way to reach the Pag-IBIG Fund for your MID number verification is to send an inquiry through Facebook Messenger. Pag-IBIG’s Facebook team is available from Mondays to Fridays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Click here to directly send a message to Pag-IBIG via Facebook. Provide the details of your concern together with your full name, birthdate, mother’s maiden name, and/or past and present employers.

While you can also inquire by leaving a comment on Pag-IBIG Fund’s Facebook posts, sending a private message is the more secure way to verify your MID number. Anyone can see Pag-IBIG’s Facebook posts, including the comments. You don’t want your confidential information to be exposed to the public—so send a PM instead.


5. Call the Pag-IBIG hotline.

If you have a landline at home, call the Pag-IBIG hotline (02) 8724-4244 (anytime between 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. from Mondays to Saturdays) to ask for your MID number.

Once you’re connected with an agent, be prepared to answer some questions about your personal information for your identity verification.

Editor’s note: Based on my experience, this is the fastest way to retrieve your Pag-IBIG MID number. I called on a weekday and finally got to talk to an agent after probably three attempts. She asked me my full name, birthday, and other personal details for verification purposes. A few seconds later, I finally got my Pag-IBIG number.


6. Visit the nearest Pag-IBIG branch.

Need to get your Pag-IBIG MID number and MDF at the same time? You can request both at any Pag-IBIG Fund office. Simply present your original valid ID and submit two photocopies of it.

Pag-IBIG branches are open on Mondays to Fridays, from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. (Check the list of Pag-IBIG branches here.) 

However, if you need a copy of your MDF for employment purposes, you don’t need to request one, according to Pag-IBIG. Instead, retrieve your MID number through other verification methods listed above and give it to your new employer.
