  1. Hi, can i speak with you regarding pplic? I had a run in with them yesterday. So fastforward, i didn't attend the meeting, i didn't the type in my pin when asked for it (i remember correctly she asked her colleage "ok naba si sir, and then she was met with a nope, shaking her head. The girl i'm with asked nicely if i can type in my pin which i replied with a stiff no, told them i'm waiting for my barber so i was wandering around rob ermita and left their office. Will something happen to my money? Do i need to take it out na and cut off atm and request a new one?

    1. No. If it's a debit card, they need your pin. I suggest you call your bank. Although, I can say right now that you any transaction through atm where the pin isn't entered remains void, you can call your bank to further assure you.

      P.S. Please post your comments on the appropriate post. This is the last time I'll be answering PPLIC questions in posts not related to PPLIC.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
