Why Filipinos do not become business owners or entrepreneurs

For a majority of Filipinos, entrepreneurship does not seem to be a typical, expected path.

8 thoughts on “Guide for Legacy depositors: How to claim money from PDIC”

  1. I invested in LEGACY and I have a P100k time deposit account at RURAL BANK OF DARBCI in General Santos City. I’ve been calling the bank since December 2008 and they are now processing claims. Unfortunately, they are only entertaining claims for SAVINGS ACCOUNT DEPOSITORS. Okay lang po yun sa akin. Ang gusto ko lang malaman, eh kaya bang bayaran ng PDIC ang lahat ng claims. Baka maubos na ang pera nila sa savings account members pa lang tapos pagdating sa TIME DEPOSIT accounts e wala na kaming makuha. How secure and stable is PDIC?

  2. What if maubos nga pondo nila (PDIC), ano mangyayari sa ibang depositor na hindi pa nakapag claim? Meron bang other government institution na maghahandle nito? Baka mag-print na lang sila ng maraming money to cover other claims…

  3. @Yvon, actually pag nalaman ng mga tao na kulang ang pera ng PDIC para pambayad sa depositors ng closed banks, sobrang public panic ang epekto nyan so most probably nde natin yan malalaman. Pero kung kulangin man ang pera ng PDIC, pwede muna silang umutang sa BSP o sa ibang creditors. Or yun nga, ang pede nilang tactic ay patagalin ang pagbabayad sa depositors habang naghihintay ng additional na pera.

  4. I also deposited 250k on time deposit account in DRBCI. Though the PDIC start paying regular deposits below 100k and their assurance to pay all the depositors, and that they were just waiting for the advice from their main office to start paying those accounts with more than 100k deposit, still, i am very much worried as i have read it the newspaper that PDIC was trying to apply for 14Billion loan at the BSP but it was not granted. So, meaning to say PDIC itself don’t have enough funds to pay all the depositors. Ma-ta- THANK YOU na lang ba talaga ang pera ng mga depositors with time deposit account?

  5. Are there means of evaluating a rural bank if it is performing well or if it is near bankruptcy/closure? I’m a depositor of Bank of Makati Buendia Branch. Any comment about this bank?

  6. Did the Jonathan Ames letter come yet? I signed up in January and that i definitely definitely hope I didn’t miss it. Is there a way I’m able to browse it if it did already come?
