Senior citizens in Makati to get early cash gift
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.
Seniors aged 60-69 will each receive P1,500; 70-79 years old P2,000; 80-89 years old P2,500; and 90-99 years old P5,000. Centenarians aged 101 and up will also receive P5,000.
A total of P158,655,500 is expected to be distributed to 83,857 seniors registered as of Oct. 31, 2022.
