Pag-IBIG Fund Deputy Chief Executive Officer Alexander Hilario Aguilar said the transfer and expansion intend to "make Pag-IBIG services more accessible to all our members."

For his part, Mayor Oscar Moreno said Pag-IBIG Fund has been an instrument of the government to address housing and resettlement issues.
"Grabe ang demand sa housing (the demand for housing is high). If the government were to do nothing, the price of housing will be unreachable to many," Moreno said.
Together with Pag-IBIG Fund, Moreno said the city now works to attract developers so the socialized housing will be undertaken in the city and to make the price per housing unit more affordable to the beneficiaries.
The new office of Pag-IBIG Fund CDO Central Members Services Branch is open Mondays to Fridays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.. (RTP/PIA10)
