Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) can take advantage of SSS’s Direct Housing Loan Facility that aims to provide low-cost housing for your family in the Philippines. If you’re younger than 65 years old, a certified OFW, and an active SSS member with at least 12 months continuous contributions, you may be qualified to receive a housing loan. Loanable amounts for socialized housing is Php 300,000; for low-cost housing you can get a loan from Php 500,000 to Php 1,000,000. All loans can be paid in multiples of five for a maximum of thirty years, so long as it doesn’t exceed the building’s economic life. Interests rates are 9% for Php 300,000 loans, 13% for Php 500,000 and 14% for Php 1,000,000.
