The Home Development Mutual Fund (HMDF), also known as Pag-IBIGFund, is the government agency responsible for providing housing programs and benefits for employees in the private and public sectors.

Republic Act (RA) 9679 mandates all employers to register their respective employees with HDMF, along with Social Security System (SSS), Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (Philhealth), and Government Service Insurance System (GSIS). HMDF is a safety blanket provided by the government that provides loans for housing and emergency purposes. It also ensures that your contributions are yours, and you are allowed to withdraw them after a certain amount of time.

The Pag-IBIG membership allows members to loan for residential properties not exceeding 1,000 square meters.
