This is a summary of the study titled “The Philippines Social Pension at Four Years”. The study provides lessons on two areas key to assessing the progress of the Philippine social pension: (a) impact of the scheme, and (b) implementation. More specifically, the study seeks to explore the extent to which the PhP 500 benefit has an impact on recipients and their families. In terms of implementation, the major focus is to evaluate the process of targeting and validation of indigent senior citizens.
