CEBU CITY, Philippines – All registered senior citizens in Cebu City are set to receive a P500 Christmas incentive if a city councilor’s proposal is approved.

During his privileged speech on October 25, Councilor Pastor M. Alcover, the chairman city’s committee for the elderly, presented a proposal to mark the celebration of Seniors’ Month.

Alcover said that giving Christmas incentives to seniors is a way of recognizing their invaluable contributions to the community.

Moreover, the counselor mentioned that there are a few seniors who do not meet the eligibility criteria for the City’s annual financial assistance of 12,000 pesos, as outlined in City Ordinance No. 2453.

“Subay niini, basin pwede nato matagaan ug financial assistance ang tanan mga seniors na narehistro sa Cebu City,” Alcover said.

“Ang pagsabot niini, katong wala mi-qualify na makadawat ug 12,000 pesos kay basin pwede nato matagaan ug gamay na financial assistance,” he added.

In addition, Councilor Alcover also proposed providing financial assistance to Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

The proposal to give Christmas incentives to the city’s senior citizens has already been forwarded to the Office of the Mayor for further feasibility study.    /rcg
