House Bill 9459 DOBLENG PENSION PARA SA SENIOR CITIZENS
Pinamamadali na ng AnaKalusugan Party-list Rep. Mike Defensor ang dagdag pension para sa ating mga Senior Citizen. 225 na lawmakers ang pabor sa House Bill 9459 na nakapa ilalim sa Republic Act 7432. An Act to Maximize the Contribution of Senior Citizens to Nation Building, Grants Benefits and Special Privileges.
Ayon kay AKP Rep. Mike Defensor “The bill is already with the Senate, after the House passed it in July. In fact, no less than Senate President Vicente Sotto III authored the counterpart Senate bill. Now would be a good time for the Senate to pass the bill while we are observing Elderly Filipino Week,”.
Ang pagpapatupad at pamamahagi ng Social Pension ay ililipat sa DSWD patungo sa National Commission on Senior Citizens (PNA).
