Digital payment firm PayMaya Philippines and the Lingkod Muntinlupa Foundation have teamed up to improve the disbursement of subsidies to citizens and scholars of the Muntinlupa Care Card program.
The Lingkod Muntinlupa Foundation, through its public-private partnership with the city government of Muntinlupa, provides citizens with Muntinlupa Care Cards that allow them to access services such as free e-jeepney rides, accident financial insurance, healthcare services, and job and livelihood opportunities.
Through the partnership with PayMaya, financial assistance is now disbursed to Muntinlupa Care Card holders digitally — a more secure, convenient and efficient alternative to distribute hard cash to communities — at no sign-up cost.
Muntinlupa Care Card holders have their very own personalized PayMaya cards where they can automatically and immediately receive their benefits.
The PayMaya cards are accepted anywhere Visa is honored — even abroad. Muntinlupa Care Card holders can use their PayMaya to transact at physical stores such as groceries, drug stores, restaurants, and malls. There is no need to carry cash, which is hassle and risky.
Muntinlupa Care Cards will soon be converted into two-in-one PayMaya IDs, equipping citizens with one card which they can carry and use anytime.
PayMaya allows anyone, regardless of mobile number — Globe, Smart, TnT — to create an account without the hassle of changing SIM cards.
?Our city government aims to arm our constituents with innovative technologies that open their world to digital possibilities. At the same time, our Muntinlupa Care Card holders can enjoy the ease of online payments, and learn to manage their funds efficiently,? said Jaime Fresnedi, mayor of Muntinlupa City.
