Yes. You can redeem/withdraw your investments and still be in the program. Just visit the branch where your EIP is booked.
For your investments with a COP, you need to surrender the COP upon redemption.
On the other hand, if you are redeeming participating units of investments without a COP, submit the Notice of Redemption.
If you enrolled via BDO Invest Online, you need to redeem/withdraw via the same channel.
If you are redeeming participating units of investments without a COP, this will be subject to a non-completion fee of 0.50% based on the original participation amount.
Original participation amount – ₱5,000
Non-completion fee is 5,000 x 0.50% = ₱25 to be deducted from the final proceeds*.
*Final proceeds is computed based on market value.
If you lost your COP, you will be required to submit a notarized Affidavit of Loss to the branch where you enrolled your EIP.
If you enrolled your EIP online, your COP is available for viewing or printing online.
To discontinue the automatic debit arrangement from your deposit account, go to the branch where your EIP is booked and submit the Notice of Unsubscription Form. If you enrolled via BDO Invest Online, you need to unsubscribe via the same channel.
The participating units of your investments without a COP will automatically be redeemed. This transaction is subject to a non-completion fee. On the other hand, your investments with COP/s will remain in the UITF until you decide to redeem these.
