Senior citizens in Pasig may soon receive a monthly pension of P500 if a proposed ordinance is passed by the city council soon.

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto recently met with Councilor Edith Santiago and her son to discuss the draft of the proposed Senior Citizens’ Code of Pasig.

In a Facebook post, Sotto said the proposed ordinance will include a provision for a P500 monthly pension for residents aged 65 years old and above who have no other sources of pension.

“Naglaan na ang LGU ng pondo rito at sapat ito para masimulan ang programa sa 3rd qtr ng 2022,” he explained.

Sotto credited Santiago for coming up with the proposed Senior Citizens’ Code and writing the draft ordinance. The city council is expected to deliberate on it soon.
