Seven 90-something Candaba seniors get P100K cash aid
Seven residents aged 95 years old and above Candaba town in Pampanga province each received P100,000 in cash assistance as part of an incentive program for senior citizens, according to a Sun Star Pampanga report.
The report said the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office along with board members Nelson Calara and Gabby Mutuc led the distribution of P100,000 to senior citizens enrolled in the provincial government’s one-time cash incentive program.
The cash gift is part of the privileges and benefits provided by the provincial government to senior citizens under Ordinance 683.
The program was implemented by virtue of Provincial Ordinance 683, series of 2014, or “An Ordinance Enacting the Senior Citizen Code of the Province of Pampanga.”
At first only those who have reached 100 years old were entitled to receive the incentive but the Pampanga provincial government lowered the age requirement to 95 under Provincial Ordinance 647.
