Kalingang QC Beneficiaries May Opt for GCash for Disbursement Method
Quezon City residents may opt to receive their supplemental financial assistance from the local government safely, securely, and conveniently through GCash, the leading mobile wallet in the Philippines.
Through GCash, beneficiaries of the local government’s Kalingang QC Program stand to benefit from the wide array of financial services that GCash offers to its users — from savings to credit, from investments to insurance.
Kalingang QC is the supplemental Social Amelioration Program (SAP) for the vulnerable sectors in the city. It aims to dole out P22,000 in financial assistance to solo parents, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities, among others. They may opt to choose GCash as the disbursement facility for financial assistance.
“Choosing GCash as their preferred disbursement facility allows beneficiaries to receive the financial assistance safely, securely, and conveniently. Aside from this, they may also use their GCash wallets for an array of services such as bills payment, online and offline transactions, and fund transfers, among many others,” GCash Vice President for Enterprise Luigi Reyes said.
Beneficiaries of the Kalingang QC Program may use the funds facilitated through GCash to buy from over 70,000 GCash partner merchants like Puregold, Mercury Drug Store, 7-Eleven, among others via Scan to Pay via QR or Barcode, pay their electricity bills via Bills Pay, transfer money to and from 40 banks via Bank Transfer, and buy airtime load credits.
