A law providing monetary rewards to senior citizens aged 80 to 95 was approved

Republic Act (RA) 11982, approved in the Philippines, extends the coverage of the Centenarians Act of 2016. This law provides a monetary reward in the form of a cash gift worth P10,000 to Filipino senior citizens aged 80 to 95. The intention is to recognize and support elderly individuals by granting them financial assistance upon reaching specific age milestones. 


Republic Act 11982 is an amendment to the Centenarians Act of 2016 in the Philippines. It grants benefits to Filipino octogenarians (individuals in their 80s) and nonagenarians (individuals in their 90s). The law expands the coverage of Republic Act 10868, also known as the Centenarians Act of 2016.

 "Today, it's my honor to sign into law two bills which not only honor two key sectors of society, but mandate measures that protect their rights and promote their development," Marcos said in his speech during the signing of the two bills at MalacaΓ±an Palace's Ceremonial Hall.

Under Republic Act 11982, all Filipinos, whether residing in the Philippines or abroad, are eligible to receive a cash gift worth P10,000 upon reaching the age of 80. This cash gift is given every five years thereafter, meaning individuals can receive the cash gift again at the ages of 85, 90, and 95. The law aims to provide support and recognition to elderly citizens in their advanced years.

“Maraming salamat po sa ating Pangulo sa pagbibigay importansiya sa mga matatanda nating kababayan (Thank you very much to our President for giving importance to our elderly folk),” Tulfo, one of the bill’s authors, said in a statement.


“Siguradong matutuwa ang mga senior citizen natin dahil sa panibagong benepisyo na kanilang matatanggap (Definitely, our senior citizens are happy with the additional benefits they will get)

What are the qualifications for receiving the cash gift under Republic Act 11982?

According to the information I found, under Republic Act 11982, the qualifications for receiving the cash gift are as follows:

 

1. Nationality: All Filipinos, whether residing in the Philippines or abroad, are eligible to receive the cash gift.

2. Age: Individuals must reach the age of 80 to qualify for the cash gift. The cash gift is given every five years thereafter, meaning individuals can receive the cash gift again at the ages of 85, 90, and 95.

 

It's important to note that the information provided is based on the sources I found, and it's always a good idea to refer to the official text of the law or consult with local government agencies for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

 

Are there any exceptions to the age requirement for receiving the cash gift?

 

Based on the information I found, there are no specific exceptions mentioned regarding the age requirement for receiving the cash gift under Republic Act 11982. The law states that individuals must reach the age of 80 to qualify for the cash gift, and it is given every five years thereafter at the ages of 85, 90, and 95.
