A co-borrower is an additional borrower who can be a spouse, parent, sibling, or any family member, or even a friend, who will be equally liable for the loan. Both the borrower and co-borrower need to sign the contract, are equally responsible to pay the loan, and both will receive collection reminders.
Having a co-borrower puts someone in a better position to manage a loan. Once your loan agreement is activated, the borrower will need to keep both individuals' information updated. (e.g. when updating mobile number, address, etc.)
Your Additional Contact Person will serve as your emergency contact. They must be a resident of the Philippines and at least 18 years old. They will need to provide their contact details, such as their mobile number and email address.

Your first monthly installment will be due 30 days after disbursement. You can pay for your monthly dues online or over-the-counter at partner banks and non-bank payment centers nationwide.
Before getting a plan, find out how much you need first (this is called your plan’s “Principal” amount). Do you need coverage for your full tuition? Or do you only need partial coverage? Sometimes it’s better to ask for partial coverage to minimize your monthly payments at the start. You can always add more coverage when you need it.
Now that you know what you need, you can now see how much you will have to repay. This will be bigger than what you asked for due to interest rates and the origination fee charged to your plan.
