As responsible adults, we try to be prepared for every eventuality and that includes — *knock on wood* — that fate that all of us eventually meet: death.
This step-by-step guide will show you how to:
I am not a St. Peter agent or affiliated with them in any way, but I have gotten several St. Peter plans and have always wished there was a way to pay for them online. I hope this guide helps YOU achieve your own adulting goals.
You will be asked to fill in your first name, middle name, last name, email address, and mobile number. You will be sent a confirmation email to activate your account, and one-time pins (OTPs) are sent to your mobile number whenever you try to make a transaction, so please make sure your email address and mobile number are both valid!
Once you’ve activated your St. Peter account and signed in, you will be able to access the St. Peter planholder portal.
From here, you will be able to do a lot of things related to your St. Peter life plan, including:
Some of these services are available by default for plans that you buy online, while you will have to message St. Peter if you want an existing plan added to your account. However, you can pay for your existing plan through this portal even if you didn’t buy it online and you haven’t yet enrolled your plan into your online account.
Sign in to your St. Peter account. Once you are able to access the Planholder Portal, click on the credit card symbol labeled “Pay My Plan” at the right of the screen.
This will take you to a page with a picture that says “Payment made easier!” If you bought your St. Peter life plan online, your plan will be pre-listed and you will be able to simply select it if you pay for it. If you bought your plan in person (through an agent) your plan won’t be listed automatically under your name — but don’t worry! You can still pay for it online! At the bottom of the screen you’ll see a bar marked “Search your account here.” You don’t have to click it — just scroll down.
In the box marked “Enter your Lifeplan info,” fill in your contract number, first name, middle name, last name, and date of birth. If you don’t know your contract number, you can look in your Planholder’s Identification Card that your agent gave to you after your very first payment. After you’ve filled in all the details, click on Search.
The St. Peter website will be able to pull up your records — even if it’s the first time you’ve accessed the portal or signed up for an online account — and it will tell you what other information you need to provide before you can proceed with your payment.
Fill in your plan details and personal information. A lot of the boxes will already be filled up — based on the information they already have that they were able to pull up when you searched for your account — but there might be some others you need to fill in. Just make sure all the details with red asterisks are filled in.
Once you’ve filled in the necessary information, you need to choose your payment type:
Whichever you choose — installment or entire balance — you will be shown the total amount you need to pay.
Next, you need to confirm all the details of your plan and your payment. This page is there for a reason — make sure everything is in order!
When you’ve double-checked everything and you’re ready to proceed to payment, click on the green “Confirm” button.
Your mobile number will then be sent a six-character one-time password (OTP) for further verification. Enter the code in the boxes provided then click “Submit.”
You will then be taken to the payment page.
You have loads of payment options, including:
And that’s it!
There are many St. Peter agents among my acquaintances. I got my own St. Peter plans from a friend of my mother’s and she’s always been terrific about facilitating our payments and all that. Having said that, there are just situations where doing things online — by yourself, without needing to go through an agent — is just more convenient. And what’s great is that now we can purchase a St. Peter Lifeplan directly online.
Here’s how to do it.
Sign in to your St. Peter online account then click the shopping basket icon marked “Buy a Plan” on the right side of your screen.
You will be taken to a page where you can view all their available life plan products and choose which plan(s) you want.
The first part of the page contains links to the terms and conditions of their plans. To view all the available St. Peter plans — with their description and prices — just scroll down.
You can compare the plans you’re interested in by ticking the small square on the upper left of their respective boxes.
To view the details of one plan, you can simply click/press the “Buy Now” button — don’t worry, you won’t actually have to buy it right away!
There are six traditional plans and two cremation plans.
Click on the “Buy Now” button of the plan you’ve decided to purchase.
This will bring up on screen the full details of that plan, including:
Scrolling down the page, you will see boxes where you can choose quantity — how many of that plan you want to purchase — and your preferred mode of payment.
You are also reminded that if you pay the entire amount of the contract price — in “spot cash” — you will be given a 10% discount on the total contract price.
Make sure that you’ve read and understood all the plan benefits and features, check the box that says you’ve done so, and then click on the “Add to Cart” button.
You can view your cart, which will list down all the plans you’ve added to cart — or just the one, if you only want to buy one — and the total amount you will have to buy.
If you’ve chosen the “spot cash” option, you will see your 10% discount reflected on this page.
Once you’re satisfied with all the details shown, click on the “Proceed to Checkout” button.
You will be informed of the documents and information that you need to have on hand to complete the transaction.
You will also be reminded that cremation services can currently only be provided in four St. Peter chapels: the ones in Bacolod City, Cebu City, Davao City, and Quezon City.
Fill up the form and upload the requirements.
Prepare the following files:
Information you will need to fill in:
Information that is not required (no red asterisk) but you might want to fill in — so have them on hand:
You will also need to fill in a health declaration, where you can upload relevant medical documents.
After you’re done filling up the form, make your payment and you’re done!
How do St. Peter plans work?
The details depend on which plan you purchase but all plans include a memorial service and provision of a casket and/or an urn. The plans also include retrieval of the deceased from their place of death to the St. Peter chapel, as well as transport from the chapel to the cemetery during interment.
What is included in St. Peter plans?
All St. Peter plans include a memorial service, provision of a casket and/or urn, and transport. Depending on your age and state of health when you buy the plan, you may also be eligible for the following benefits: cash assistance, payment of unpaid balance, waiver of installment, and accidental death and dismemberment coverage.
How much does a St. Peter plan cost?
The price range for traditional (ie, non-cremation) plans range from ₱47,400 to ₱120,000 with the difference lying in the caskets provided. Cremation plans can cost either ₱66,000 (cremation before viewing) or ₱99,000 (cremation after viewing).

Within how many years can St. Peter plans be paid?
All St. Peter plans are payable in five years at annual, semi-annual, quarterly or monthly intervals. However, if you choose to pay in “spot cash” — that is, if you prefer to make the full payment right away — you will be given a 10% discount on the total contract price.
Are there St. Peter plans for senior citizens?
Senior citizens may avail of all the plans currently offered by St. Peter but they will not have insurance coverage.
Are there St. Peter plans with cremation?
Yes. Currently, there are two types of St. Peter cremation plans. Under the St. James plan, which currently costs ₱66,000, cremation will be done first, followed by a three-day viewing. Under the St. Jude plan, currently priced at ₱99,000, the three-day viewing will be done first — that is, mourners will be able to view the deceased in the coffin for three days — after which, cremation will be performed.
Can St. Peter plans be transferred?
Yes, you can transfer your St. Peter plan to any living person. You can also assign your St. Peter plan to a deceased person but (of course) the insurance benefits will no longer apply to them nor to you.
