ILOILO CITY, July 10 (PIA) – Over 2.7 million pesos financial assistance has yet to be claimed by 545 beneficiaries under the COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP) of the government, according to the regional office of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) here in Western Visayas.
In a press report, DOLE 6 is reminding the said beneficiaries to claim their financial assistance from M Lhuillier, the remittance service provider.
“Gapanawagan kami sa mga beneficiaries nga kuhaon na nila ang ila benepisyo. Madamo sang nagareklamo nga wala makakuha sang bulig halin sa gobyerno apang nakibot man kami nga madamo pa gid gali ang wala nagkuha sang nakapertinisir na sa ila nga bulig (We are calling on the beneficiaries to get their benefit. Many have complained that they were not able to get assistance from the government but we were also surprised that many have still yet to get the assistance intended for them),” said DOLE 6 Director Cyril Ticao in the press report.
In order for their claims to be released, CAMP beneficiaries with unclaimed benefits are advised to email a scanned copy of their government-issued ID and updated contact number at [email protected]
CAMP is a safety net program that offered financial support to affected workers in private establishments that have adopted Flexible Working Arrangements (FWAs) or temporary closure during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A one-time financial assistance of Php5,000.00 was provided to affected employees under the program. (JSC/laf/PIA6 Iloilo)
