- PERA (Actually we were planning on opening when we went home last January, however, when we went to BDO main office, they said it's not yet available to the public. They are having a test run and there are no forms passed to the bank officers. For BPI, it is open to the public, however, you have to go to the main office. We did not have time to go so we were not able to open PERA.) (done opened last May 2017) -- never updated or added after that due to our visa application.
