Hi Coach Grace.
Thank you for sharing this blog. As an OFW I used this Pag-big MP2 Program as one of my savings upon retirement. What is good about it is that it is only 5 years. You can roll it over or get it for future use like tuition fees for your kids, travel, business, etc. The dividend is higher too! Compared to banks’ interest rates per annum is very small. And as you have said, it is tax-free. Unlike banks’ investments, they will cut some percentage upon withdrawal. And it is safe and secure guaranteed by the government. No worry to keep your money in Pag-big MP2 than looking for a higher interest rate without security after years.
My eldest daughter starts to work last Monday and I always remind her to save in this program. She already has the Pag-big fund regular savings (100php) and can avail of this Pag-big MP2 (500php). She can save extra money for her future use.
