P1.4 billion released to WV social pensioners

first_imgThe social pension is released per semester orevery six months, thus each beneficiary gets P3,000. The release was originallydone every quarter but this was modified. ILOILO City – For this year as of Dec. 2, P1.4billion has so far been released to 246,421 social pensioners in WesternVisayas, according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The 246,421 is 70 percent of the 365,908target beneficiaries of the national government’s Social Pension Program forIndigent Senior Citizens (SPISC) in the region, said Judith Tañate- Barredo,DSWD Region 6 social pension focal person. Under SPISC, a monthly stipend of P500 isreleased to an indigent senior citizen. But in September this year, DSWD Region 6started releasing P6,000 to each beneficiary covering a whole year of pension. “We are waiting for more names ofbeneficiaries to be downloaded by our central office,” said Macapobre. “We hope to release the pension of theremaining beneficiaries before this year ends,” said Tañate- Barredo. The list of qualified social pensioners wasdownloaded to regional offices in batches. Even then, some pensioners complained nothaving received theirs. DSWD regional director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre said thiswas due to the revalidation of the list of beneficiaries by the department’scentral office. The senior citizen must have no permanentsource of income and/or frail, sickly or with disability. Senior citizens with regular support fromtheir families or have pensions from the Social Security System, GovernmentService Insurance System and/or private offices are not eligible for thepension, she stressed./PNlast_img read more

The only time France have won silverware away from Paris was Euro 2000, while the sole final loss was on penalties to Italy at the 2006 World Cup.France have won their last 10 games against Portugal, whose last victory over the hosts came in 1975. And Fernando Santos, who began his reign 21 months ago with a loss to France in the Stade de France, has seen his team win only once inside 90 minutes at Euro 2016 – against Wales in the semifinals.advertisementlast_img read more
