Catanduanes Rep. Cesar V. Sarmiento has a “super good news” for centenarians.

Sarmiento said that a House special committee approved a bill that he sponsored seeking to increase the P100,000 financial grant for centenarians.

“Aprubado kanina sa special committee on Senior Citizens ang panukalang dagdag benepisyo sa mga kababayan nating umabot sa 100 taong gulang. Ito ang 3% increase sa 100 Thousand pesos na ibibigay sa kanila para tapatan ang inflation ng ekonomiya kada taon,” Sarmiento said.

Sarmiento said that the House Bill 8559, will be a huge help for the centenarians or those 100 years old or older.

Sarmiento was also the co-author of the HB 8208, where it seeks to provide cash grants to senior citizens:

85 years old – 25 thousand pesos
90 years old – 25 thousand pesos
95 years old – 25 thousand pesos
100 years old – 100 thousand pesos

“Ang susunod na proseso para maisabatas ang Bill na ito sa Kongreso ay ang pag-apruba nito sa plenaryo (congress session). Sana po mapabilis ang pag sulong ng batas na ito!,” Sarmiento said.
