MANILA, Philippines- Ilang platforms ang target gamitin para sa payout ng monthly social pension ng indigent senior citizens, ayon sa Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) nitong Biyernes.

Sa memorandum circular (MC), inihayag ng ahensya na ipinag-utos sa field offices (FOs) nito na tukuyin ang “the most feasible and efficient delivery schemes.”

“Some of the modes of payment that may be used by the FOs include cash payout facilitated by designated special disbursing officers through a plaza-type payout and cash cards through an authorized government depository bank,” pahayag ng departamento.

“Likewise, fund transfers to local government units and payout through money remittance companies were added to the modalities,” dagdag nito.

Mula sa nakaraang quarterly release, sinabi ng DSWD na ang schedule of distribution ay sa January-June at July-December.

“[T]he amendment in the frequency of distribution was sought to fast-track the release of the social pension to the beneficiaries, and in consideration of the limitation of funds for administrative cost, workforce, and disbursing officers,” sabi ng departamento.

“For the remaining months of 2022, beneficiaries of the program, whose ₱500-monthly stipend for the third and fourth quarters are yet to be released, will receive their pension within the second semester amounting to ₱3,000,” patuloy nito. RNT/SA
