How to claim your 5k – 8k assistance from DSWD

Step 1: The local government unit (LGU) will distribute Social Amelioration Card (SAC) forms on a house to house basis. The SAC forms serve as monitoring and validation tools to help the government identify the families that need urgent financial assistance.

Step 2: The head of the family will write all the necessary information on the SAC form in big letters.

Step 3: Make sure that the form is complete. Submit one of the forms to the LGU official when they return for collection. Keep the other form (duplicate) for reference and monitoring.

Step 4: The DSWD and other government agencies will send the aid to the LGU for distribution to beneficiaries.

In addition to the SAC forms, the DSWD will also use the existing list of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) and the Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) Program to validate the list submitted by LGUs.

Families under the 4Ps will also be supported with a top-up on their grants and rice subsidy to reach the maximum benefit per region. The 4Ps beneficiaries are most vulnerable to economic, social and physical shocks such as this health crisis, thus, the need to augment their existing grants to help them with their daily needs.
