Pag-IBIG Fund said Friday it would offer a 60-day grace period on all loan payments and a restructuring program to help cash-squeezed members in this pandemic. Both lifelines are provided for under Bayanihan 2, the country's COVID-response law.

The grace period covers loans with up to nine months in arrears although Bayanihan 2 prescribes just three months, said Housing Secretary cand Chairman of the Pag-IBIG Board of Trustees Eduardo del Rosario.

The 60-day grace period, without penalty and interest on interest, will be applied automatically to the Multi-Purpose Loan, Calamity Loan, and Housing Loan, from Sept. 15 to Nov. 14, he said.
