UPDATE (7/16/2021): EDA for 2020 has been raised from 9% to 13% per annum. According to AFPSLAI, you’ll get the 3% difference after May 26, 2021. For the first quarter of 2021, the EDA is 14% per annum or 3.5% for that quarter.
While their dividend rates have gone down drastically to around 9% per annum since 2020, AFPSLAI‘s Capital Contribution Account (CCA) is still a very good investment vehicle. I pray that their dividend increases again once the economy recovers.
(Note: The EDA actually increased to 13% p.a. for 2020, and 14% p.a. for the first quarter of 2021. Look at the “Update” section above.)
If you want to avoid the long lines and crowded venue, I recommend getting your dividend a few weeks after the distribution period, and when you do go you should arrive very early. For comparison, if I get there by 8am on release day, my number would be on the hundreds already and my turn would come by 2pm or later. Nowadays, I go there weeks after release and arrive by 7am. If I do that, I can be done by 8:30am or 9am.
