The DSWD said one of the major causes of delays in distributing government assistance like the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) is the lack of identification cards among many beneficiaries.
Approximately 16,500 or around 80% of the waitlisted beneficiaries of the DSWD’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP) in Pasig have already claimed their cash aid recently.
Beneficiaries of the Social Amelioration Program being implemented by the DSWD can expect a faster release for the second tranche of their cash subsidies.
The “ReliefAgad” website of the DSWD allows beneficiaries of the government’s social amelioration program to register and receive financial assistance electronically.
After getting backlash for the slow disbursement of cash assistance under the government’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP), the DSWD is now going digital to accelerate the payment of the second tranche of cash aid for Filipinos severely affected by the Covid-19 lockdown.
