by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

A summit on elderly concerns is slated on Oct. 4, 1 p.m. at the Multi-purpose Hall, City Hall.

The forum will be led by the city council committee on social services, women and urban poor chaired by Councilor Lilia Fariñas.

It aims to gather concerned sectors to get their opinions and consensus on the different concerns affecting senior citizens in the city.

With the inputs gathered, the city council aims to develop guidelines that will meet the needs of the various aged groups residing in the city with emphasis on their needs.

These will also be the basis in formulating guidelines and policies on how the rights and privileges of the elderly can be availed as mandated by law.

The summit also seeks to gather inputs on how the elderly sector can contribute to the welfare of the community.

Various groups and associations have been invited to attend the summit.

At present, the privileges granted to senior citizens as enshrined in Republic Act 9994 are 20 percent discount on medicine and drug purchases, medical supplies, accessories, and equipment, medical and dental services, professional fees of attending physician, professional fees of licensed health workers providing home health care services, transportation, hotels, restaurants, theaters, cinemas, concert halls, circuses, leisure, and amusement, fees, charges, and rental for sports facilities and equipment, funeral and burial expenses; five percent discount for water and electricity consumption; exemption from payment of income tax; social pension for indigent senior citizens, automatic coverage under the PhilHealth; social assistance in cases of emergency and disaster; and priority lanes in government or private institutions.
