Critère d'éligibilité
Elderly beneficiaries are selected from the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) and the list of identified senior citizens is then validated at the local level. However, Local Government Units (LGU) also accept applications at the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) for the benefit. Potential beneficiaries are those aged 60 and older who are sick, frail or with disability, without pension from GSIS, SSS, AFPMBAI and other insurance company, and no permanent source of income or regular support from his/her relatives.
