Pasig opens online finder for supplemental SAP beneficiaries


The Pasig City Public Information Office (PIO) announced the launch of an online finder for constituents to let them know if the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) covers them.

“There is an online finder for those who are asking if they’re included in the database used for the Pamaskong Handog, which serves as the primary basis of the list of who will receive the Pasig Supplemental SAP,” the Pasig PIO said in an advisory posted on Facebook.

Pasig City residents not included in the list can still register via the online platform.

“There’s no need to go to the City Hall or to sign up to anyone. You can register online if you’re not included in the database,” the advisory added.

Pasig City residents not covered by the national government’s SAP can receive financial assistance from the local government.

“All SAP recipients from the national government will no longer be included in the Supplemental SAP list,” the advisory explained.

Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto earlier stated that about 160,000 families not identified as SAP beneficiaries by the national government can receive a supplemental subsidy from the LGU.

Under the Pasig Supplemental SAP, traditional or nuclear families, solo parents, grandparents whose grandchildren are with them, legally married couples even without children, and LGBTQ legal partners with children will receive P8,000 cash subsidy.
