Seventy-five qualified pensioners were granted cash aid, while 21 recipients of the PWD subsidy received financial assistance.

The social pension program is a government initiative that provides financial assistance to indigent senior citizens who are 60 years old and above. It aims to support their daily subsistence and medical needs, particularly those who do not have a regular source of income or support from their families.

The program is funded by the national government and implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in coordination with local government units.

Meanwhile, the PWD assistance is given to individuals with disabilities to support their daily living expenses.
