P1,000 PENSION FOR POOR SENIOR CITIZENS PROPOSED

1

A lawmaker has proposed for a P1,000 monthly pension from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to be given to indigent senior citizens. Rep. Winston Castelo of Quezon City (second district) said that House Bill 2958 shall cover senior citizens who are not beneficiaries of the Social Security System, Government Security and Insurance System, Armed Forces of the Philippines-Mutual Benefit Association Inc. or of any other insurance company. “There is a need to create the Special Social Pension Program to fully democratize social and welfare benefits for those indigent senior citizens,” Castelo said.
