CEBU CITY, Philippines — Cebu City senior citizens are expected to receive the third tranche of their senior citizen allowance on Saturday, May 18, at their respective barangay halls.

If the senior citizen fails to get the financial assistance tomorrow, they are given 10 days to collect the money at the City Treasurer’s Office.

Limpangog said that the distribution must be inside a government building of the barangay and the distribution would start from 8 a.m. to noon.

For those who are not capable of receiving their financial assistance, the money will be delivered to their houses if they were registered to be with disability.

At least 4,000 senior citizens will have their financial assistance delivered to their households since they can no longer go to the barangay halls.

The seniors, who will be claiming their financial assistance, must bring their senior citizen identification (ID) cards and another original ID in order to claim the money.

The registered senior citizens in Cebu City are entitled to a P12,000 financial assistance from the city government. Registration for which are done in the Senior Citizens Affairs Office.

“I highly encourage that they (senior citizens) get their financial assistance tomorrow so they will not have to go to the City Hall to claim. We brought the service to the barangays for their convenience,” said Limpangog.

Limpangog also reminded the senior citizens that they would need to personally claim the financial assistance as any form of authorization letter would not be honored by the city./dbs
