Senior citizens no longer need to appear personally for the validation of their pensions, Malacañang said Friday after the government's inter-agency task force on COVID-19 directed pension firms to think of alternative ways for assessment.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the IATF ordered pension-issuing agencies and their servicing banks and other financial institutions to adopt alternative modes of validation for senior citizen pensioners.

"The IATF considered the health and safety of senior citizen pensioners in approving this resolution," Roque said. The policy is set to take effect on March 1.

Prior to the pandemic, senior citizens need to make personal appearances to pension-issuing agencies in order to continuously receive their retirement benefits.
