Villanueva eyes for increased senior citizen stipends

By Ernie Reyes

MANILA — Sen. Joel Villanueva said that the country’s senior citizens deserve a long-overdue increase in their pension in the middle of the pandemic.

“Simple at straightforward po ang layunin ng mga panukalang batas na ito: Isanlibong piso kada buwan para sa indigent nating mga lolo at lola,” he emphasized.

The vice-chair of the Senate Committee on Social Justice, Welfare, and Rural Development made this statement in a hearing on eight legislative measures proposing additional benefits for the indigent elder Filipinos.
