Bahagi ng total savings ay ang Pag-IBIG Regular Savings ng ahensiya na tumaas ng 6% mula sa P37.71 bilyon noong 2021 hanggang P40.06 bilyon noong 2022. “The sustained growth in Pag-IBIG Members’ Savings collections has been truly remarkable. It denotes our members’ trust and confidence in our programs, and our capacity to manage each hard-earned peso they have saved with us," ayon kay Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) Secretary Jose Rizalino Acuzar. "And, as our collections remain strong, we remain able to finance and maintain the low interest rates of our loan programs. These are among our many efforts in adhering to the call of President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. towards advancing the welfare of our fellow Filipinos," pahayag ni Acuzar. Sinabi naman ni Pag-IBIG Fund CEO Marilene Acosta, ang MP2 Savings ng ahensiya ay nagpapatuloy para isulong ang paglago ng savings ng mga miyembro nito. Pinapanatili ng voluntary savings program ang paglago noong 2022, habang ang mga miyembro “saved a record-high P39.84 billion in the program, up 53%, or P13.89 billion from the P25.95 billion collected in 2021.” “We are happy that we continue to gain the trust of our members, as shown by the record-high amounts that they have saved with us in 2022, as well as in the past years. This shows their growing appreciation of the value in saving with Pag-IBIG Fund," sambit ni Acosta. "That is why we remain committed in responsibly and prudently managing their savings, so that we can provide them the best possible returns,” dagdag na pahayag nito.
