Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR)- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) would like to provide clarification on a post regarding the payout of Unconditional Cash Transfer beneficiaries of the Social Pension Program in Kalinga Province.
The said payout has been duly coordinated with the Landbank of the Philippines which is the service provider for the said Program. Necessary preparations were made such as the set-up of chairs and scheduling of beneficiaries. DSWD FO CAR personnel were also present during the activity to assist the beneficiaries.
The beneficiaries were required to appear personally for further validation and verification as required before the release of the said assistance.
Unlike previous payouts, distribution of UCT grants is through cash cards which aims to promote financial literacy and social inclusion among the senior citizens.
The DSWD FO CAR would take this experience into account to improve its service delivery in its upcoming activities.
For other concerns, the Department may be visited at #40 North Drive, Baguio City or reached through telephone numbers (6374) 661 04 30 or (6302) 396 65 80, mobile numbers +63917 871 9893, +63917 872 0256, +63919 065 5365 to 68, e-mail at email@example.com or Facebook account at www.facebook.com/dswdfocar. #DSWD-CAR, SOCIAL MARKETING UNIT, NERIZZA FAYE G.
