Pag-IBIG brings services closer to DepEd

SAN JUAN, ILOCOS SUR — Some 40 employees of San Juan National High School here availed of Pag-IBIG’s Loyalty Card Plus, February 3, as Pag-IBIG continues to bring its services to DepEd employees.

Vigan Branch’s Loyalty ID Card Operators Kirby Calub and Ren Brendon Piano said the new loyalty card is now equipped with a security chip. Aside from serving as a discount card at various business establishments, the new card will now serve as a bank ATM card with the Asian United Bank (AUB) and to transact loans with Pag-IBIG.
