For swift payment of wages, DOLE RPO issues transaction codes to 784 TUPAD beneficiaries in Antipolo

The Department of Labor and Employment Rizal Provincial Office (DOLE RPO) in collaboration with the City Government of Antipolo, distributed transaction codes to 784 beneficiaries under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers #Barangay Ko, Bahay ko (TUPAD #BKBK) program on April 13, 2021. These transaction codes represent their wages which they will claim in designated remittance centers.

In line with the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) implemented in the area, DOLE RPO and the City of Antipolo devised a scheduling system, to control the influx of beneficiaries inside the Ynares Event Center and for a smooth distribution of transaction codes.

Through the top-up fund of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the 784 beneficiaries are entitled to an additional receive PhP9,000 each. The beneficiaries should claim the said additional assistance from the designated partner remittance centers of DOLE.

DOLE RPO Head, Marivic Martinez reiterated the role of the beneficiaries for this program during the payout.

“Ano po ang ating gagawin? Araw-araw pong maglinis ng bahay, araw-araw tayong mag-disinfect and make sure na wala na si COVID[-19]. So ganoon lang po ang ating gagawin, panatilihing malinis ang inyong barangay at ang inyong bahay, at may kaukulan pong sweldo galing sa DOLE,” Martinez pointed out.

Meanwhile, Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Bautista-Ynares, pledged that they will continue to serve the Antipolo community.

“Asahan niyo po, patuloy tayong magtutulungan, kailangan din po namin ang tulong ninyo at kayo po sana ay makipag-cooperate sa ating City [Government]. Puwede po ba 'yun? Lagi po tayong magsuot ng faceshield at facemask,” Ynares said.

TUPAD #BKBK is response of the Department to help the informal sector workers whose sources of income are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On the said program, the beneficiaries were provided a 10-day emergency employment. They were tasked to clean and/or disinfect their houses, community centers, roads, and other public places and infrastructures to prevent the further spread of the virus in their respective communities.
