Distribution of senior citizens’ cash aid set on December 10

SOME 80,000 senior citizens will receive P2,000 each from the Cebu City Government during the last batch of distribution of financial assistance for this year.

The aid distribution will be held on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, in the different barangays in the city, according to Vicente “Enting” Esmeña, head of the Office of Senior Citizens Affairs (Osca).

The beneficiaries are required to bring their Osca identification cards (IDs) and ballpens.

The authorization letter, however, will not be honored by the disbursing officer.

The use of cash cards or ATM cards is also discouraged as the distribution will be done manually.

As to bedridden beneficiaries, Esmeña said the city’s disbursing officers will visit their homes to personally distribute the cash aid.

This will be the final round of cash assistance for Cebu City’s registered senior citizens this year, after they were able to claim the initial P10,000 in the last ten months of the year.

After the senior citizens, the City will then distribute the last set of cash aid for the city’s persons with disabilities, particularly for the months of November and December. (PAC / TPT)
