MANILA, Philippines — Senior citizens in Makati are set to receive their year-end cash incentives early, the city government said.

In a statement, the local government said the early cash distribution aims to “spare [seniors] from the holiday rush and give them more time to plan ahead on what or where to spend their [incentives].”

Registered senior citizens, or Blu Card holders, will receive the cash incentive directly through their GCash accounts.

The city’s senior citizens are given cash incentives twice per year, every July and December.
