Calaca mulls providing local pension for its senior citizens

Calaca’s senior citizen population is expected to grow in the coming years, and Mayor Nas Ona wants to make sure they will be provided for.

Ona noted that by 2030, 17 to 20 percent of the population of Calaca would be made up of senior citizens.

This is why he is studying the possibility of providing a local pension for senior citizens, he said.

“Paglalaanan ng pondo ang mga seniors na talagang walang kakayanang itaguyod ang kanilang sarili at wala ng kumakalingang pamilya. Sila ay nangangailangan ng tulong mula sa ating lokal na pamahalaan maging sa kalusugan o sa pamumuhay man,” he said.

He wants to help make the elderly residents happy, he added.

He also thanked them for supporting the idea of voting for the cityhood of Calaca.
