DSWD-7 doing over-the-counter payouts to 4Ps beneficiaries with no cash cards
Russia-Ukraine war causes delay in making cash cards since chip imported from Ukraine, agency says
LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Visayas (DSWD-7) is currently implementing over-the-counter (OTC) payout to Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries that have not yet received their cash card from the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP).
In their previous advisory, LBP said that they are experiencing delays in producing the cash card, due to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. One of the components of the cash card’s chip was imported from Ukraine.
DSWD-7: Set 11 4Ps beneficiares to get OTW payout
Sophronio Tabigue, regional accountant of DSWD-7, said that they had implemented OTC payout since July this year.
More than 25,000 4Ps beneficiaries from set 11, who does not have cash cards yet, have already started receiving their cash grant through OCT payout.
Set 11 are 4Ps beneficiaries who enrolled in the program last year.
However, set 12 beneficiaries, who were enrolled this year, were not yet included in the OTC payout.

“Magpaabot pa ta sa Land Bank kung masudlan ilang account” Tabigue said.
