DSWD officials, employees show bayanihan spirit; donate over P4 million to Benguet hospital

Officials and employees of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) have joined together to help raise funds for the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

DSWD personnel in the Department’s Central and Regional offices responded to a memorandum issued by DSWD Secretary Rolando Bautista calling for any voluntary contribution to be used for COVID-19 response.


A total of P4,035,000.00 has been raised from the bayanihan initiative. The amount committed was deducted from the May and June payroll of all the willing personnel.

The collected funds will be donated to Benguet General Hospital in La Trinidad, Benguet to help the medical facility respond to the needs of COVID-19 patients and its medical frontliners.

Secretary Bautista thanked all the Department’s personnel who, apart from working to deliver the  emergency cash subsidy under the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) to low-income families most affected by the community quarantine, went beyond their jobs to extend additional aid through their voluntary contributions to those in need in the midst of the crisis.


The collective effort is part of DSWD’s continued commitment to contribute to the country’s pandemic response. It is also a way of the Department’s personnel to show solidarity, compassion, and dedicated service to the vulnerable sectors affected by the crisis. ###

DSWD champions Filipino Bayanihan spirit in latest campaign

To recognize the efforts of different stakeholders to alleviate the impact of the Corononavirus Disease (COVID-19), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) will launch a campaign highlighting the Filipino Bayanihan spirit on June 11.

Dubbed as “KaSama Ako sa Pagbangon ng Pamilyang Pilipino,” the campaign underscores the collaboration among DSWD, its partners, and stakeholders in the delivery of social services, and the significance of public participation to address the challenges brought by the current health crisis.

Employing the whole-of-nation approach, KaSama Ako sa Pagbangon ng Pamilyang Pilipino will feature stories of hope from beneficiaries, local and national agencies, and private institutions contributing to the implementation of the Social Amelioration Program (SAP). Specifically, it will utilize multimedia platforms to promote three main concepts: good governance, participation, and culture.

By featuring the different innovations and initiatives of stakeholders in the campaign, the Department hopes to promote transparency, accountability, dedicated public service, and community participation amidst the pandemic. ###

DSWD explains SAP refund process

Following reports of families receiving more than one type of subsidy from the Social Amelioration Program (SAP), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) explained its guidelines for the refund process for cash aid.

Beneficiaries may refund their SAP through the cashier’s office of the agency that made the payment, which includes the barangay treasurer or municipal/city treasurer. In the case of DSWD offices, the DSWD Field Office’s (FO) cashier or collecting officer may process the refund.

The collecting office must issue an official receipt (OR) to the beneficiary making the refund, which includes the name of the payer and the amount of money being refunded.

If the refund is being made at the barangay level, remittance of the collected refund must be immediately processed to their respective municipal/city treasurer within 15 days or based on its standard protocols.

All collections from the refunds made by SAP beneficiaries must also be reflected in the liquidation reports of local government units (LGUs) which will be submitted to DSWD within the agreed timeline.

Those who are required to refund their SAP include the following:

  • Elected and appointed government officials or personnel contracted in any National Government Agency (NGA), Government-owned and Controlled Corporation (GOCC), LGUs and GOCCs with original charter;
  • Employees in the private sector, or those in the formal economy;
  • Retired individuals who are receiving pension;
  • Families with independent financial capacity consistent with the intent of Republic Act (RA) No. 11469 or the “Bayanihan to Heal as One Act”; and
  • Beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) who already received their SAP through their cash cards and yet have also received SAP distributed by the LGUs or other NGAs such as the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) or the Social Security System (SSS).

Meanwhile, excess grants received by 4Ps beneficiaries shall be automatically deducted from their subsequent cash grants until the amount is fully adjusted or refunded.

As of June 5, the Department has reported that some 3,723 beneficiaries have returned more than P20.3 million to DSWD due to duplication of assistance received from other government agencies or ineligibility.

The beneficiaries who returned their cash assistance include 795 from Region III, 166 from CALABARZON, 10 from MIMAROPA, 54 from Region VIII, 210 from Region IX, 2,047 from Region XI, 197 from CARAGA, 236 from the National Capital Region (NCR), and eight beneficiaries who directly returned their subsidy to the DSWD Central Office.

About 179 LGUs also refunded more than P324.4 million emergency cash assistance to DSWD. The LGUs came from Regions CAR, I, II, III, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, V, VI, VIII, IX, X, XII, CARAGA, and BARMM.

The Department will use the refunded amount for the second tranche of SAP  implementation.

DSWD also lauded SAP beneficiaries who refunded their assistance for their honesty and adherence to the law. ###

DSWD prepares payout for 5 million “waitlisted” SAP beneficiaries

In continuation of the Social Amelioration Program (SAP), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is in the process of preparing for the distribution of emergency cash subsidy to the 5 million “waitlisted” families directed by the President to be added in the first tranche of SAP implementation.

The Department reminded local government units (LGUs) across the nation to identify eligible low-income families, validated and assessed to be financially and economically affected by the declaration of community quarantine but were not included in the initial eighteen million family beneficiaries of SAP for the first tranche. 

As stipulated in its guidelines, the master list submitted by the LGUs must include the names of the beneficiaries with a certification signed by the City/Municipal/ Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer and their local chief executive. The certification must state that the names on the submitted master list are reviewed and qualified or eligible based on existing guidelines.

Once the master list is submitted to the DSWD Field Office, it will be subjected to regional deduplication wherein cross-matching of the names of beneficiaries with the available databases of the Department and list/s shared by other government agencies implementing SAP will be performed to ensure that the names listed have not previously received aid. This will ascertain that there will be no duplication in the availment of emergency subsidies.

The list shall be further subjected to deduplication process at the DSWD Central Office to determine any duplication at the inter-regional level to arrive at a certified list.

The Department will issue Social Amelioration Card (SAC) forms with code specifically for the additional beneficiaries.

DSWD is seeking the help of local governments units (LGUs) to post their master list in public so that their constituents can check the list of additional SAP beneficiaries.

Meanwhile, for the second tranche of SAP implementation, DSWD targeted 8.5 million low income families in ECQ areas and some 3.5 million waitlisted families from the 5 million additional families approved by President Duterte for inclusion in the program.

The areas covered by the second tranche will be based on Executive Order No. 112, S. of 2020 dated May 1. These areas include: Region III except Aurora Province; National Capital Region (NCR); Region CALABARZON; Benguet; Pangasinan; Iloilo; Cebu Province; Bacolod City; and Davao City. Albay Province and Zamboanga City will also be covered by the second tranche based on the Memorandum signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on May 2.

On the directive of President Duterte,  DSWD will lead the distribution of the second tranche of SAP.  The Department will also seek the assistance of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), particularly female soldiers in the distribution of the cash subsidy.

DSWD will also utilize the most expeditious means to provide assistance to qualified household beneficiaries. These may be in the form of payment through electronic or digital means, cash cards, transfer of funds to other National Government Agencies, door-to-door cash payout, or direct cash.

The Department, likewise, encouraged SAP beneficiaries to register to the ReliefAgad application to expedite the process of gathering beneficiaries’ information for validation and in order to avail of a safer and more convenient cashless disbursement.

SAP beneficiaries may register to the app by visiting www.reliefagad.ph Using a smartphone, beneficiaries will scan the barcode at the lower right-hand corner of the SAC form to proceed with the registration. 

After completing the enrollment, the beneficiary will wait for DSWD’s confirmation and announcement for payout as it will conduct validations to the submitted registrations. 

The Department continues to study and think of other innovative means to improve its protocols and guidelines for the 2nd tranche of SAP implementation. ###
