Based on the report, if the senate passed it into law, it will entitle the elderly to P10,000 when they reach 80 and another P10,000 at the age of 90 and 100K at 100 years old.

“This is how highly we value our culture of taking care of our elderly. This proposed measure, therefore, is another legislative effort in the testimony of this unique Filipino culture,” Revilla said.
