Duterte’s take on SSS pension


President-elect Rodrigo Duterte promised that he will increase the pension of Senior Citizens.

During the press conference where the President introduced the members of his Cabinet, Duterte said that the Php2,000 pension that the senior citizens receive monthly is not enough to buy them their medicines and other medical needs.

Prior to this outgoing President Benigno Aquino III vetoed the proposed SSS pension hike because he said that this may lead to the bankruptcy of the state pension fund.
