Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

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.
