Old banknotes good up to December 31, 2015 in the Philippines


From Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas
old-bank-notes
Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Deputy Governor Diwa C. Guinigundo today reminded the public that the old banknote series launched in 1985 can still be used for daily transactions up to December 31, 2015.
From January 1, 2016 up to December 31, 2016, the old banknotes can still be exchanged in authorized agent banks and the BSP Cash Department. However, starting January 1, 2017, the old banknote series will be fully demonetized or without monetary value.
This means that the New Generation Banknotes introduced in December 2010 will result in the circulation of a single currency series in the country. The New Generation Banknotes have more and enhanced security features to protect the safety of the public against counterfeiters.
The demonetization process of the old banknotes is in line with the provisions of Section 57 of Republic Act No. 7653, otherwise known as the New Central Bank Act, which authorizes the BSP to replace banknotes that are more than 5 years old. The old banknotes have been in circulation for almost three decades.
The public is advised of the following important information:
1. The public may continue to use the old banknotes up to 31 December 2015 in paying and buying of goods and services and other business or financial transactions requiring the use of cash. Thereafter, these old banknotes will no longer be accepted for payment transactions;
2. From 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2016, the public may exchange with authorized financial institutions, namely universal and commercial banks, thrift banks, and rural as well as cooperative banks, their old banknotes with the New Generation Currency (NGC) Series at full face value, without charge. The public may also opt to exchange their old banknotes with the BSP or any of its regional offices/branches around the Philippines.
3. Government institutions holding old banknotes which could not be exchanged during the prescribed period, such as banknotes used as evidence in a litigation case, will have to request the BSP Cash Department in writing, within the period of exchange, for a special exchange arrangement;
4. For Overseas Filipinos (OFs) abroad, who have in their possession old banknotes which could not be exchanged within the prescribed period, they may register online starting 1 October 2016 to 31 December 2016 through the BSP Website. These old banknotes may be exchanged with the BSP within one (1) year from date of registration; and
5. Starting 1 January 2017, NDS banknotes that have not been exchanged shall no longer have any monetary value, and are considered demonetized.

A KOREAN’S MESSAGE FOR THE FILIPINOS


A KOREAN’S MESSAGE FOR THE FILIPINOS
18 July 2008
Written by Jaeyoun Kim
Filipinos always complain about the corruption in the Philippines. Do you really thinkthe corruption is the problem of the Philippines? I do not think so. I strongly believe that the problem is the lack of love for the Philippines.
Let me first talk about my country, Korea. It might help you understand my point. After the Korean War, South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world. Koreans had to start from scratch because entire country was destroyed after the Korean War, and we had no natural resources.
Koreans used to talk about the Philippines, for Filipinos were very rich in Asia. We envy Filipinos. Koreans really wanted to be well off like Filipinos. Many Koreans died of famine. My father and brother also died because of famine. Korean government was very corrupt and is still very corrupt beyond your imagination, but Korea was able to develop dramatically because Koreans really did their best for the common good with their heart burning with patriotism.
Koreans did not work just for themselves but also for their neighborhood and country. Education inspired young men with the spirit of patriotism.
Forty years ago, President Park took over the government to reform Korea. He tried to borrow money from other countries, but it was not possible to get a loan and attract a foreign investment because the economic situation of South Korea was so bad. Korea had only three factories. So, President Park sent many mine workers and nurses to Germany so that they could send money to Korea to build a factory. They had to go through horrible experience.
In 1964, President Park visited Germany to borrow money. Hundred of Koreans in Germany came to the airport to welcome him and cried there as they saw the President Park. They asked to him, “President, when can we be well off?” That was the only question everyone asked to him. President Park cried with them and promised them that Korea would be well
off if everyone works hard for Korea, and the President of Germany got the strong impression on them and lent money to Korea. So, President Park was able to build many factories in Korea . He always asked Koreans to love their country from their heart.
Many Korean scientists and engineers in the USA came back to Korea to help developing country because they wanted their country to be well off. Though they received very small salary, they did their best for Korea. They always hoped that their children would live in well off country.
My parents always brought me to the places where poor and physically handicapped people live. They wanted me to understand their life and help them. I also worked for Catholic Church when I was in the army. The only thing I learned from Catholic Church was that we have to love our neighborhood. And, I have loved my neighborhood. Have you cried for the Philippines? I have cried for my country several times. I also cried for the Philippines because of so many poor people.
I have been to the New Bilibid prison. What made me sad in the prison were the prisoners who do not have any love for their country. They go to mass and work for Church. They pray everyday.
However, they do not love the Philippines. I talked to two prisoners at the maximum-security compound, and both of them said that they would leave the Philippines right after they are released from the prison. They said that they would start a new life in other countries and never come back to the Philippines.
Many Koreans have a great love for Korea so that we were able to share our wealth with our neighborhood. The owners of factory and company were distributed their profit to their employees fairly so that employees could buy what they needed and saved money for the future and their children.
When I was in Korea, I had a very strong faith and wanted to be a priest. However, when I came to the Philippines, I completely lost my faith. I was very confused when I saw many unbelievable situations in the Philippines. Street kids always make me sad, and I see them everyday. The Philippines is the only Catholic country in Asia , but there are too many poor people here. People go to church every Sunday to pray, but nothing has been changed.
My parents came to the Philippines last week and saw this situation. They told me that Korea was much poorer than the present Philippines when they were young. They are so sorry that there are so many beggars and street kids. When we went to Pagsanjan, I forced my parents to take a boat because it would fun. However, they were not happy after taking a boat. They said that they would not take the boat again because they were sympathized the boatmen, for the boatmen were very poor and had a small frame. Most of people just took a boat and enjoyed it. But, my parents did not enjoy it because of love for them.
My mother who has been working for Catholic Church since I was very young told me that if we just go to mass without changing ourselves, we are not Catholic indeed. Faith should come with action. She added that I have to love Filipinos and do good things for them because all of us are same and have received a great love from God. I want Filipinos to love their neighborhood and country as much as they love God so that the Philippines will be well off.
I am sure that love is the keyword, which Filipinos should remember. We cannot change the sinful structure at once. It should start from person. Love must start in everybody, in a small scale and have to grow. A lot of things happen if we open up to love. Let’s put away our prejudices and look at our worries with our new eyes.
I discover that every person is worthy to be loved. Trust in love, because it makes changes possible. Love changes you and me. It changes people, contexts and relationships. It changes the world. Please love your neighborhood and country.
Jesus Christ said that whatever we do to others we do to Him. In the Philippines , there is God for people who are abused and abandoned. There is God who is crying for love. If you have a child, teach them how to love the Philippines. Teach them why they have to love their neighborhood and country. You already know that God also will be very happy if you love others.
That’s all I really want to ask you Filipinos.
WOW missing LINK to the SUCCESS of each and every Filipinos a decades of decades had past and that is LOVE for our country, LOVE for our neighborhood, LOVE for society and LOVE which GOD taught us! Please SHARE it, so that we Filipinos will be enlightened! And the question to POVERTY will be ANSWERED immediately...
GOD BLESS the Philippines!!!!

P1,000 SSS pension increase available starting Friday, March 3

In a statement, SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel Dooc said the agency already released some P2 billion to its pensioners for the month of January 2017 as part of the increase.



' We are pleased to announce to our pensioners that the P1,000 additional benefit is now ready for withdrawal in their respective bank accounts while the remaining retroactive amount will be received in the next two Fridays of March (10 and 17) 2017.” Dooc said.

Update: It is has been submitted in Malacanang Palace and has been waiting for President NoyNoy Aquino's signature to implement the bill for the  P 2,000.00 increase in retirees' SSS pension.



NOTE: MY ORIGINAL ARTICLE

With just one negative vote, fifteen senators approved on the third and final reading on Monday a bill that would grant a P2,000 across-the-board increase in the monthly pension of retired Social Security System (SSS) members.
Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile was the only senator who voted against the bill. No senator abstained.
“…While we are going to favor present beneficiaries, the cost of this generous grant of across- the-board benefit or additional to their benefits , in the end, it (SSS) will be bankrupted because this is a contributor system and not a social security system guaranteed or funded by the national government,” Enrile said.






“Now, I understand that the argument given is, we’ll let Congress or the state provide the money at that point. That’s a poor statement, poor argument, Mr. President. We’re leaving the future generation of Filipinos to suffer just because we want votes at this time especially during an election year. Thank you,” he added.
Despite Enrile’s objection, the senators voted in favor of House Bill 5842 or the Social Security Act, which seeks to amend Section 12 of Republic Act 1161 or the Social Security Act of 1997.

“The passage of this bill is an early Christmas gift of the Senate to the SSS pensioners, who depend on these pensions for their daily expenses,” Drilon said in a statement.
The bill was sponsored in the Senate by Senator Cynthia Villar, Senate President Pro-Tempore Ralph Recto and Senators Teofisto “TG” Guingona III, Joseph Victor Ejercito, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Chiz Escudero, Jinggoy Ejercito-Estrada, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., and Deputy Minority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.

“Given the rising cost of living, it is high time we give our retirees and their family a monthly pension that will allow them to at least live with dignity,” said Villar, chair of the Senate committee on government corporations and public enterprises and principal sponsor of the bill.
“We must also consider that many of our retired workers, given their old age, have maintenance medicines and special requirements that add to their daily living expenses. Increasing their pension is the least we could do to reward them for decades of hard work,” Villar added.
While a five percent across-the-board pension increase was already provided by the SSS for its retired members in 2014, Villar said the hike was still not enough to cover the rising cost of living for the past 18 years.

She then cited data from the National Statistical Coordinating Board which pegged the monthly poverty threshold for a family of five at P8,022 per month. Poverty threshold refers to the minimum income a family or individual must earn in order to be considered “not poor.”
Villar said the average SSS pensioner receives P3,169, which is below the poverty threshold.
“I do not think that the basis for which the SSS was established – that of promoting social justice and providing meaningful protection to its members and their beneficiaries against the hazards of old age, loss of income, among others – is at work,” she said.

Recto, meanwhile, pointed out that roughly 1.5 million of the SSS pensioners of about 81.5 percent received a monthly pension below P4,000 in 2012. The amount, he said, was less than the daily minimum wage and was below the poverty line set by government.
“The consolidated bill seeks an across-the-board increase of P2,000 on the monthly SSS pension. In effect, those receiving the minimum pension of P1,200 per month will now receive P3,200 under this bill. The average SSS pensioner gets about P3,169 a month. If this bill becomes law, his pension will increase to P5,169,” he said.

Recto said the increase in the monthly SSS pension would not result in underspending since pensioners would spend their money and boost the domestic economy. JE
