Mahigit P109 milyon DOLE financial assistance hindi pa naki-claim ng mga OFW


- Advertisment -

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) confirmed that there are over 109 million peso-worth of financial assistance under the Abot Kamay Ang Pagtulong for OFWs (AKAP) still unclaimed at remittance centres and DOLE’s regional offices. 

With the current amount unclaimed at remittance centres, it means more than 10,000 displaced overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have yet to claim the financial assistance facilitate by DOLE overseas and in the Philippines. 

DOLE said that the unclaimed amount is part of more than P300 million worth of cash assistance left unclaimed by beneficiaries of various assistance programs launched by DOLE for displaced OFWs. 

Rolly Francia, DOLE’s spokesperson, said that many cases of the unclaimed fund were due to beneficiaries’ change in contact numbers, or they’ve lost their phones. 

“The reference code for claiming the benefits in remittance centres are sent through their mobile number. The problem is many beneficiaries changed or lost their phones,” he was quoted as saying by The Filipino Times. 

He encouraged displaced OFWs to coordinate with their DOLE regional offices to claim their financial benefits as soon as possible to avoid forfeit or expiration.
