Oriental Mindoro – A total of 5, 238 beneficiaries of the Social Pension Program for Indigent Senior Citizens (SPIC) from 62 barangays of Calapan City Oriental Mindoro are currently receiving their Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) grant for the year amounting to P2,400.00.

Overall, some 3 million seniors are expected to receive their UCT grants.

UCT is the tax subsidy provided for under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law to help the poor cushion the adverse economic impact of the law for three years, starting 2018. For this year, beneficiaries will receive P200 per month or P2,400 for one year. In 2019 and 2020, the subsidy will increase to P300 or P3,600 a year.

Aside from the 3 million social pensioners, UCT beneficiaries also include the 4.4 million household-beneficiaries of the DSWD’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) and the 2.6 million poor households listed under the DSWD National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction or Listahanan.

SPISC is the government’s assistance for poor seniors in the amount of P500 per month to help augment their daily subsistence, including their medical needs. Beneficiaries include indigent seniors who are frail, sickly or with a disability; with no regular income or support from family and relatives; and without pension from private or government institutions.  ###

Good Practice: SLP Marinduque maintains Recordkeeping

Proposals, vouchers, attendance list, reports, and articles to name a few. Any office and field-based worker knows how these can turn into a mess as soon as they start piling up on their small desk space. The boss then asks for a certain document and the employee does not know where to find it. Government records are primary sources of information thus, these must be kept and protected at any cost. Sustainable Livelihood Program in Marinduque has the right solution for it – recordkeeping.

Sonia De Leon and Marieta Manzo, Regional Program Coordinator and Provincial Monitoring and Evaluation Officer respectively, checked and monitored all records per municipality to ensure that documents are filed, labeled, and update properly. The initiative also aimed to provide technical assistance on proper filing system to help Project Development Officers (PDOs) organize their files with efficiency and transparency. The strategy also aimed to help other staff to retrieve documents with utmost ease.

All documents received and sent outside were logged for easier tracking and monitoring. PDOs are very keen on recordkeeping as it is imperative in the government organization. Here are some techniques in recordkeeping and filing procedures:

Step 1: Receiving the document. If it is a letter or document that came through snail mail, record it in the “mail received” column and write the complete date when you received the certain type of document.

Step 2: Action. Forward the letter/document to the addressee. If there is no addressee indicated, ask the sender for necessary details.

Step 3: Follow up. Check if the letter or document has been dealt with.

Step 4: Collecting documents for filing. All documents with at least two receiving copies must be collected in a filing tray.

Step 5: Filing. Choose a regular time to file every day to avoid unnecessary piling up of documents. A convenient filing system may also be used.

Here are some techniques to maintain a good filing system:

  1. Keep pending documents in a clean tray. Do not leave them lying on desks or shelves to avoid misplacement.
  2. File documents regularly.
  3. Cover old files that has been worn or torn. Boxes and lever arch folders may also help hold documents properly.
  4. Put everything in a cabinet or drawer to avoid loss of confidential documents and prevent dusts.

Keep in mind that little things matter. Start recordkeeping now!
