Star Magic Artists Now Pag-Ibig Fund Members

Star Magic artists marked the group's 19th anniversary by joining the government's Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF), more popularly known as the Pag-Ibig Fund.

On Sunday, more than 90 Star Magic artists formally and officially became members of the Pag-Ibig Fund.

HDMF chief executive officer Atty. Darlene Berberabe said the stars are mandated by law to be members of HDMF.

"(You know) because of the law passed in 2009 na nagsabi na mandatory ang coverage ng Pag-Ibig Fund membership including the self-employed, ang [ginawa nitong] ating mga artista [ay] isang napakagandang move para maka-boost (ng membership). Kasi maraming nag-i-idolo sa ating mga artista kaya very important, very momentous ito para sa Pag-Ibig Fund," Berberabe said.

Stars like actor Jake Cuenca said the tie-up between Star Magic and HDMF is a really good move for artists.

"It's mandatory na for all of us artists to pay Pag-Ibig which is very, very good. Kami naman we are just really proud to support Pag-Ibig Fund. It's a good cause," Cuenca said.
