Partner-homeowners of Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) can now pay their loan amortizations with the government agency through GCash, a digital wallet service that allows customers to pay their bills or send money in the comfort of their own home. The initiative is part of SHFC’s efforts to reduce the number of people visiting its offices across the country amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
With this development, beneficiaries of the agency’s flagship initiative, the Community Mortgage Program (CMP), can use their GCash wallets to settle their monthly amortization.
In order to access the cashless payment service, they must first secure a reference number from SHFC’s Zeus portal on http://www.shfc.dhsud.gov.ph. After logging in to their GCash account, partner-homeowners must go to the Pay Bills section on the dashboard before selecting “Social Housing Finance” in the billers under the Government category.
SHFC advised its clients to save a copy of the acknowledgment receipt that they will receive in their registered mobile number until payments are reflected in their statement of accounts within four business days. READ MORE
