Even after transitioning to a stay-at-home mom five years ago, I did not stop paying for my government contributions. I moved from employed to a voluntary member in Pag-Ibig. And every month I pay my contributions through Bayad Center. Last month, I was looking for other ways to pay my SSS contributions and stumbled upon tinkering the GCash app on my phone. I did not find what I was looking for, but I learned that I could pay my Pag-Ibig contributions through GCash.
I use GCash mainly to withdraw PayPal funds, load my loved ones' prepaid numbers, use it as a debit card for online shopping, and pay my Globe postpaid bill.
When I don't have any PayPal funds, I can simply cash-in or load my GCash account through 7-11 convenience stores.
And what I liked most about GCash is that I get rebates for my transactions. Yay!
How to Pay
First you need to have a GCash account. Login to your account.
From the Main Menu, click on Pay Bills.
Next select Government.
Scroll down and click on Pag-Ibig.
In the drop-down menu on Type, select Members Contribution. Fill-out the rest of the form. Click Next.
Once completed, your screen will show your reference number. On the upper right corner, there's an icon you can click to download a copy of your transaction.
Yay! Now I don't have to go every month at Bayad Center to pay for my contributions. I can now pay it wherever and whenever I want. Hurray for technology!
