Bayanihan 2 (Bayanihan to Recover as One Act) Grace Period Provision:

Latest release on 10/07/2020

Bukas will be implementing a one-time 60-day grace period for qualified customers na may existing installment plans as of September 15, 2020.

Given the grace period, the maturity date of all affected installment plans will be extended by two (2) months from the original maturity date. An adjusted payment schedule will take effect on the payment table of qualified students by October 23, 2020.

Please note that while no late fees or interest on interest will be charged during the grace period, Section 4(uu) of the IRR of the Bayanihan Act states that an accrued interest on the months extended past the original maturity date will still be charged. Para maging mas magaan ang iyong pagbabayad, the total amount of accrued interest will be equally split and added to your remaining scheduled payments.
