Businesses ask to honor old senior citizen IDs for discounts


Bacolod City Councilor Celia Flor urged all establishments to recognize and grant discounts to senior citizens presenting IDs without QR codes, or the older versions.

This comes after complaints reached Flor about establishments refusing discounts to seniors with older IDs.

As chair of the committee on senior citizens, Flor clarified that the old senior citizen IDs remain valid even without a QR code.

According to the councilor, only PWD (Person with Disability) IDs without QR codes are no longer valid, effective April 30, 2024.

The PWD ID recall stemmed from the discovery of fake IDs circulating in the city.

Flor further clarified that senior citizen IDs and PWD IDs issued to residents outside Bacolod City also remain valid.
