Why get invested

PERA (Personal Equity and Retirement Account) is a long-term and voluntary retirement program that aims to help Filipinos save and invest for a more comfortable retirement. One of its best features is the different and unique tax benefits that are not normally available in other investment programs. 


You can enjoy the full benefits of PERA when your reach 55 years of age and have made at least five (5) years of contribution.


The PERA Bond Index Fund is ideal for those who are about 5 years prior to their retirement as the Fund invests in peso-denominated bonds, taking advantage of the regular income provided by fixed income securities.


The PERA Bond Index Fund is available to participants who are (a) individuals; (b) have legal capacity to contract; (c) who have a Philippine Tax Identification Number (TIN); and (d) whose funds are in a PERA.
