Reynaldo Abesia, the administrative head of the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA), confirmed in the Sungkod ni Lola ug Lolo teleradyo program that the kin, or immediate family members such as children, spouses, and siblings, of the deceased senior citizen could still claim the allowance.

In a separate interview with CDN Digital on Thursday, June 20, Abesia said that as long as the deceased beneficiary was still on the payroll for the current quarter, the claimant could still claim the beneficiary’s allotted cash assistance.

Once the quarter ends, Abesia said they would be tagged as ‘deceased’ in the office’s payroll and no cash assistance could be claimed thereafter.
