Taguig distributed birthday cash gifts to senior citizens in EMBO barangays

Mayor Lani Cayetano personally handed the cash gift to senior citizens present during the kickoff ceremony in Barangay Pembo. Others received their birthday cash gift at their doorsteps as barangay workers went house to house for the distribution.

Under this program, senior citizens of the city receive cash gifts ranging from P3,000 to P10,000 depending on their age bracket: P3,000 for those 60-69 years old, P4,000 for those 70-79 years old, P5,000 to those 80-89 years old, and P10,000 to those 90-99 years old.

Once they reach the age of 100, they will be given P100,000 and will continue to receive the same amount every year for the rest of their lives.


72-year-old Guillermo Perez Jr. from Barangay South Cembo expressed his gratitude to the City of Taguig for the cash gift and house-to-house distribution.

"Napakaganda po na dinadala niyo sa amin sa bahay ang aming cash gift. Maraming salamat po," Perez said as he received his P4,000 cash gift on Thursday.

For Adela Miranda, 86 years old from Barangay Post Proper Southside, this is her first time to receive cash gift for her birthday.

"Ibibili ko po ito ng bigas at pang ulam namin," Miranda happily told barangay workers who handed her P5,000 cash gift.

Despite the lack of proper turnover of the senior citizen database, Taguig still managed to identify an initial list of 271 senior citizens through the help of the community leaders in the Embo barangays. This was verified using the list of social pension beneficiaries from the said barangays.
