Breaking: Sen. Hontiveros Gustong Taasan ang Qualification ng Senior Citizen to 65 year’s old


Currently, a person is qualified to register as senior citizen when he/she reaches 60 years of age.

Hontiveros' bill would influence 137,000 approaching senior natives in the following five years as per Philippine Statistics Office.

In spite of the fact that the bill would likely be rejected on Senate hearing, Hontiveros' turn is viewed as brutal by a few rights gatherings.

Atty. Rafael Absalon of Seniors of the Future said that the bill is a conspicuous assault against our senior nationals, as well as all individuals.



“Yong bill ni Senator Hontiveros ay halatang hindi pinag-isipan. Ang mga matatanda ay dapat ngang kaawann. Hindi naming maintindihan kung ano ang dahilan at ginawa ni Sen. Hontiveros ang ganyang bagay”, Absalon said.

Hontiveros, in her draft explained that the plan is to save government’s money. She also cited that many senior citizens are still working between the ages of 60 to 65 years old. She noted that many senior citizens at the age of 61 to 64 are still working as taxi and jeepney drivers.

“People are just getting government’s money while still working”, part of the bill said.
The bill also stated that the government can use the money to educate younger people instead of giving to the “olds”.

“The government should invest more on young people instead of nursing older generations. Young people should be aware about Martial Law atrocities so the mistake will not be repeated”, part of the draft said.

The bill also plans to discontinue the P500 social pension every month allocated for senior citizens.
