Pelayo airs support to seniors pension program
ANGELES CITY — A candidates for councilor belonging to the Partido Abe Kapampangan, Jose Aubrey “Kuya Jay” Pelayo IV, expressed his full support to the additional social pension for senior citizens of this highly urbanized city.
“I am a product of a senior citizen. My father, the late Dr. Jose Pelayo who was a former Social Welfare Secretary was already 65 years old when I was born,” Pelayo said.
Pelayo disclosed that his siblings with his father are all senior citizens now.
“Some of them are even older than my mother. This is one of the many reasons why the senior citizens are so close to my heart,” he said
There are around 44,000 senior citizens in Angeles City and more than 1,000 are receiving quarterly pension from the government.
Pelayo vowed to support the program of the party to provide additional beneficiaries of the said social pension to help more senior Angeleños.
“And this time, I don’t want our elderly to go city hall to claim their pension. I want the social pension funds for the senior citizen to go directly to their barangays for a more convenient process,” Pelayo said.
