The local government of Quezon City has allotted the next two weeks to distribute the unclaimed financial aid from the second tranche of the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) Social Amelioration Program (SAP).

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said a total of 40,699 beneficiaries can claim the aid at the Quezon Memorial Circle covered court.

“Our citizens encountered various problems when they were trying to claim their 2nd tranche ayuda when this was being fully distributed via digital and automated means. Some of the beneficiaries did not have smartphones or internet access for them to have an e-wallet account,” Belmonte said.

“That’s why the national government, through much prodding by the city government and barangays, finally started the manual distribution of the unclaimed cash aid yesterday,” she added.

The complete list of the beneficiaries who have yet to claim their cash aid along with their payout schedule is posted in their respective barangays and will be made available on the city government’s website.
