The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) announced that it will start paying valid deposit insurance claims of depositors of the closed Export and Industry Bank (EIB) on June 19. The payouts will be conducted in three batches.
Starting June 19, the first batch of the claims settlement operations (CSO) will be conducted at the Head Office and 12 other branches namely: Bel-Air, Pasay Road, Rufino, Acropolis, Cubao-P. Tuazon, Binan-Carmona, Calamba, Angeles, Baguio City, Dagupan, Cabanatuan and Mabalacat.
The second batch of CSO, starting June 29, will be for depositors of the following 12 branches: The Fort, Boni, Bacolod City, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu Plaridel, Cebu IT Park, Cebu Business Park, Davao Jacinto, Davao Recto, Iloilo, Imus and San Pedro.

PDIC will start issuing Priority numbers to insured depositors on June 18 for the first batch; on June 28 for second batch; and July 10 for the third batch at the designated claims payout sites. The Priority Number corresponds to a specific appointment date when PDIC representatives will service the claims of depositors. This is to ensure an orderly CSO. The schedule of appointment dates will also be posted in the bank’s premises and at the PDIC website.
Depositors who maintain only one account with EIB which is in the form of Automated Teller Machine (ATM) accounts, are not required to file deposit insurance claims regardless of amount of deposit. All they need to do is to secure a printout of the ATM Balance Confirmation Receipt (BCR) from the designated EIB ATM sites during the specified dates starting on June 18, June 28 and July 10 for the first, second and third batches, respectively. The ATM card, printout of the ATM BCR and valid ID will be required in obtaining Priority Numbers from designated payout sites of their branches.
Claims of depositors will be processed onsite during the depositors’ appointment dates, and if found valid and supported with complete requirements, will be paid onsite.
Valid insured depositors who are not able to file their deposit insurance onsite during the designated dates may file their claims starting on August 9, 2012 either through mail or personally at the 4th Floor, SSS Bldg., Ayala Avenue corner V.A. Rufino St., Makati City, Monday to Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PDIC reminded that depositors have until April 28, 2014 to file their claims. After April 28, 2014, the PDIC will no longer accept any claim for insured deposits.
The schedules of the CSO, requirements and procedures in filing claims and instructions to depositors are posted in the premises of EIB Branches, designated payout sites and at the PDIC website, www.pdic.gov.ph.
PDIC assured depositors that it will pay all valid deposit insurance claims as soon as possible.
