This year, the new guidelines for Modified Pag-IBIG II (MP2) savings program has been approved. The enhanced MP2 will make all Pag-IBIG members eligible to enroll under the program regardless of their monthly income unlike the previous program which was open only to members with monthly income exceeding P5,000. The new program also extends coverage to retirees. This is also open to former Pag-IBIG members with other sources of monthly income or pensioners, regardless of age, with at least 24 monthly savings in Pag-IBIG Fund prior to their retirement. 

For the benefit of those who are unaware of the program let me give you a brief introduction of the program. The Modified Pag-IBIG II (MP2) savings program is a voluntary savings program designed to active Pag-IBIG I members with another savings option that yields higher annual dividend rates. In short, this is another source of investment in which you can put up your money and has a term of five (5) years. The minimum contribution is P500.00 per month but the member may opt to remit higher than that.

Aside from that, all contributions and earnings under MP2 are guaranteed by the government. For enrollment in the program you may visit the Pag-IBIG Fund website at and register online or visit any Pag-IBIG Branch near you.

I got a chance to try it for free the new dishwashing liquid available in the market, the Bubble Man Liquid Dishwashing. My friend introduce it to me and honestly, I hesitated at first because I was used to the leading brand I'm using at home. I'm very much practical in choosing a household product. I'm not into quantity nor into the one that cost you less. I look into quality the product offers. But after a few days of testing the product, it's safe for me to say that there's a new alternative for Mom like me to replace the overly priced leading brand. True to its tagline, Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid is gentle on hands and the easy rinse formula is very effective. I also like the smell which is not too strong. 

This new dishwashing liquid comes in 3 (three) variant: Lemon, Kalamansi and Antibac. Available in 2 sizes, 270ml and 880ml.

Good news for all the Moms out there, the 270ml bottle cost only at P32.50 it's very affordable compared to the leading brand. They have a running promo now, buy 2 bottles of 32ml for Php55.00 while 2 bottles of 880ml for only Php120.00.  It is indeed a great deal! As for opening the bottle, be sure that you have  a good grip to pull the lock 'coz I had a hard time on opening it myself though. 
Another thing is, Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid is made from biodegradable ingredients. It is! It doesn't contain the Sodium Tripolyphospate. Much safer to use and eco-friendly. Truly amazing huh! How is that? We all know that Sodium Tripolyphospate is harmful to our planet. So switch now to Bubble Man Dishwahsing Liquid. Bear in mind that by using this,  you are helping save the environment in your own little way. Overall, Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid is something that your money worth to buy for.

Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid is a product of Mikewell World of Household Products, Inc and is now available in all supermarkets nationwide and you may also place an order online. Visit their facebook page to know more about the product.

SSS Loan Restructuring Program!

Good news! The Social Security System has launched the Loan Restructuring Program (LRP) for members with past due calamity loans and other short-term loans. To qualify, members live or work in calamity areas as declared by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) or the national government.

The LRP covers calamity loan borrowers in the 1990s following the Mt. Pinatubo eruption and 1990 earthquake, and members with past due short term loans in declared calamity areas after the onslaught of tropical storms and typhoons Ondoy in 2009; Sendong in 2011; Pedring, Quiel and Pablo in 2012; Labuyo, Maring, Santi, Yolanda and Agaton in 2013; Glenda, Mario, Ruby and Seniang in 2014; Lando and Nona in 2015. Also included are the Zamboanga armed conflict and the Bohol-Cebu earthquake which both occurred in 2013.
Apart from installment payments, the borrower can also opt to pay the outstanding principal and interest in full.. For both schemes, SSS shall waive all the loan penalties after the member has completed paying the restructured loan.
The LRP covers short-term SSS loan programs including the Salary Loan, Salary Loan Early Renewal Program (SLERP), Emergency Loan, Calamity Loan, Voc Tech Loan, Y2K Loan, Investments Incentive Loan, Study Now Pay Later Plan, and the previously-offered Educational Loan, which is different from the ongoing Educational Assistance (Educ-Assist) Loan Program. Stock Investment, Privatization Fund and Educ-Assist loans are excluded from the LRP.
To qualify, the loan must be past due for at least six months and the member must be living or working in a declared calamity area as of the date of the disaster attested through an Affidavit of Residency. Members granted any final benefit claim prior to the LRP availment period and those who committed fraud against the SSS are disqualified from the program.
