Poor senior citizens in Pasig will receive a P500 monthly pension from the city government starting July, Mayor Vico Sotto announced on Thursday, March 31.

Sotto made the announcement as he shared a photo from his visit to an elderly woman, whose birthday he attended in 2019.

The woman could be seen in the photo caressing Sotto’s face, visibly happy to see him.

“Iba talaga magmahal ang mga lola!,” Sotto said.

“Nakalimutan ko palang sabihin kay Lola, na simula sa darating na Hulyo ay may matatanggap na siyang LOCAL SENIOR PENSION,” he added.

Sotto said that under the Pasig Senior Citizens Code, a senior citizen will be eligible to receive the monthly pension if he or she is aged 65 years old and above, is jobless and has no other source of pension.
