Duterte asked to act on slow disbursement of aid for seniors

President Duterte has been urged to step in on the supposed slow disbursement of financial assistance to senior citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic. Senior Citizen partylist Rep. Rodolfo “Ompong” Ordanes brought to the attention of the Chief Executive the “continuous troubles” hounding the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s implementation and disbursement of the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) , Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT), and Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens. “To date, we continually receive reports from thousands of our senior citizens all around the Philippines on how the DSWD fails to timely disburse the monetary aid that our government promised to them,” he said in his letter to Duterte dated Oct. 21. He laments that some of the senior citizens have perished before receiving a single centavo from the monetary aid due them. “This slow implementation and disbursement of the DSWD of critical monetary aid for our senior citizens clearly runs contrary to the directive of Your Excellency for the government to do whatever it takes to protect the welfare of our almost 10 million vulnerable senior citizens,” he said. “Thus, we humbly seek the assistance of Your Excellency in requesting that the DSWD fast-track the implementation and disbursement of the monetary aid for our senior citizens,” Ordanes said. During the House of Representatives’ plenary deliberations on the proposed P171-billion budget of the DSWD for 2021 last Oct. 13, it was relayed that some 1.404 million senior citizens have benefited from the national government’s SAP. In a virtual press briefing last week, over 2.9 million indigent senior citizens have received their social pension worth about P8.7 billion. The number is almost 83 percent of the 3.5 million indigent elderly targeted to receive the government stipend. During his 58th birth anniversary last Oct. 15, DSWD Secretary Rolando Bautista led the distribution of social pension worth P2.178 million to around 726 indigent senior citizens in Dinalupihan, Bataan. Republic Act No. 9994 or the “Expanded Senior Citizens Act of 2010” provides that seniors qualified to receive social pension are those who are frail, sickly, or with disability; without any pension from other government agencies; and without a permanent source of income or source of financial assistance and compensation to support their basic needs. However, the DSWD said those senior citizens who are not included in the list, but are eligible, can still appeal to the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA), their local governments, and the nearest Field Office, which has jurisdiction over their areas, for assessment......»»

Nat’l athletes, coaches get 20% discount on goods, services

National athletes and coaches can now avail of 20 percent discount on goods and services. The Philippine Sports Commission in a board meeting on Friday announced that the 20 percent discount for athletes and coaches, a provision in RA 10699, will finally be implemented as BIR issued Revenue Regulation 13-2020, dated May 27. “We have been looking forward to this and we are thankful that our athletes and coaches will finally enjoy the privilege they deserve,” said PSC chairman William ‘Butch’ Ramirez. The PSC has been working on the implementation of this privilege for a long time and have made headway with the help of the BIR last year. Effectivity of the privilege will be 15 days after publication in the official gazette or any two nationally-circulated newspapers. National athletes and coaches will also receive booklets aside from identification cards in order for beneficiaries to avail the said discounts, much like the booklet and ID being issued to senior citizens.  PSC is now having the booklets prepared. Members of the national team have already been issued their IDs. Discounts shall be applied to food, medicine, recreation centers, hotels, and lodging establishments and sports equipment purchases. BUDGET CUT While the discount privilege is welcome news, the Board also tackled belt-tightening measures with much of the government’s finances diverted to address the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The board and senior officers of the agency decided to implement a 50% reduction on allowances of athletes and coaches starting June 1 (to be remitted in July). The decision came following the diminished finances from the National Sports Development Fund (NSDF), from which the allowances are taken, because of the health crisis. The board said that this action was taken in order to sustain the granting of allowances until December 2020. “This is a hard decision to make, but one that needed to be done so we can continue caring for our athletes longer,” said Ramirez, who assured that the allowances will be restored to the present rate once the NSDF reaches a comfortable level. Last month the country’s sport department in order to cut back on expenses and reserve the remaining resources to continue its commitment to providing the allowances of athletes and coaches, discontinued contracts of sports coordinators, consultants, and JO staff......»»
