Duterte orders release of P6-B retirement pension for veterans

"Our surviving veterans have suffered much. They should not suffer more. In the twilight of their years, they deserve a better life."


I am directing the Department of Budget and Management and the Department of National Defense to expedite the early release of the AFP's retirees pension credentials for fiscal years 2008 to 2013, in the amount of P6-B"

That was the direct order of President Rodrigo Duterte to the National Defense as an early release of the retirement pensions for the veterans.

During the 75th Day of Valor commemoration rites held at the Mt. Samat National Shrine in Bataan, Duterte ordered the release of the P6.421 billion pensions.

Duterte was lauded by the veterans and their families as he said it. 

The president also guaranteed the healthcare and education of the families. He said there is a free medical care and scholarships for the dependents.

"We have settled the backlog in the disability pension, and we have made the management of almost 2,000 pension accounts more efficient," said Duterte.

Duterte recognized the sacrifices of the veterans and he wanted to repay them by giving them the needs they deserve to have.

"No matter what we do, we can never do enough to repay you, but I would like for you to know that your government is doing much, much more. Our surviving veterans have suffered much. They should not suffer more. In the twilight of their years, they deserve a better life," he said.

"These entitlements do not compare to the sacrifices you have made but we want you to know, our nation, our people, are grateful to you for what you have done, and we will do better," he added.

"Mabuhay ang beterano! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!" Duerte said.

"Saludo ako sa inyo, sir," he said then added, "Sana may giyera rin para ma-hero kami."
