Seniors, PWDs to receive cash aid
CEBU CITY, Philippines – As the Ber-months officially started, the Senior Citizens and the Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) from this city's 80 barangays will have another reason to be more happy.
This as the city government here led by Mayor Michael Rama will give the financial assistance to the more than 60,000 qualified Elderly and 10,071 PWDs this week.
In an interview with the BARUGG News, Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) head Domingo Chavez shared that on September 3, 2015 Thursday the city's elderly will get P2,000 each as the fourth tranche for their P12,000 annual financial assistance.
The OSCA head further reiterated that they will still follow the same system in the previous distribution citing that it will still be done in the respective Barangay Hall, Sports Complex and other convenient designated places in the respective barangays from 8 o'clock in the morning until 12 noon.
He said that no authorization letters will be honored and the disbursing officers coming from the different departments of the city will hand personally to the bedridden beneficiary. He added that they coordinated with the village officials along with the personnel from the Cebu City Police Office to ensure safety and security.
Meanwhile, on the following day September 4 Friday the city's PWDs will each receive P1,000 as third tranche of the P5,000 annual financial assistance.
Department of Social Welfare and Services (DSWS) assistant head Lucia Mahusay in an interview with the BARUGG News underscored that they will also follow the same system of distribution with that of the city's Elderly.
"Pareha sa Senior Citizens ang paghatag sa financial assistance sa mga PWDs adto gihapon sa ilang tagsa-tagsa ka barangay ipahigayon from 8AM hangtod 12Noon karong Biyernes (Just like with the Senior Citizens, the financial assistance distribution for the PWDs will be conducted in their barangays from 8AM to 12 Noon this Friday)," Mahusay enthuses.
For the elderly and the PWDs who cannot claim on the day of the distribution they will be given 15 days as grace period to claim it in the Cash Disbursement Division in the City Treasurer's Office, in Cebu City Hall. If the beneficiaries still cannot claim their cash aid after the grace period the money will be reverted back to the city's coffers. (Cebu City Public Information Office PIO/Greggy Jiggs P. Senados)
