On July 1, 2003, an institution that upholds the best interest of the Public Safety Sector in the country was founded. Following the separation of the Philippine National Police (PNP) from the Armed Forces of the Philippines and pursuant to Republic Act 8367 or an Act Providing for the Regulation of the Organization and Operation of Non-Stock Savings and Loan Associations which mandated that an Association shall confine its membership to a well-defined group of persons and shall not transact business with the general public, the Public Safety Savings and Loan Association, Inc. (PSSLAI) was born and established to serve the members of the PNP, the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and the Bureau of Jail and Management Penology (BJMP).
With only 24 employees, 54 Million pesos in start-up capital, and a ground floor office at the Kiangan Hall in Camp Crame, PSSLAI centered on excellent service and innovative technology by creating products and services with the satisfaction and financial well-being of the public safety family in mind. PSSLAI Loans have the lowest interest rates in the industry with no hidden charges guaranteed. The Association also offers an array of investment opportunities with high dividends.
Through these, and the hard work and dedication of the PSSLAI Board of Trustees, Management, and employees, PSSLAI today is the most admired and credible savings and loan association with its growth testified by the loyalty and patronage of more than 200,000 members*, its 34 Billion and growing asset portfolio, a 12 storey State-of-the-Art green and intelligent building along EDSA Quezon City, a branch in Camp Crame, and standardized and fully-equipped Extension Offices in key cities nationwide.
PSSLAI is supervised and authorized by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to conduct business and is endorsed by the PNP, BFP, BJMP, and PPSC leadership. PSSLAI was the only SLAI to be included in the Philippines’ Top 500 Corporations in 2015 and Top 400 Corporations in 2016 by the Philippine Business Profiles and Perspectives, Inc. and is recognized as one of the Drivers of Growth of the Philippine Economy.
