TANAUAN, Leyte – Over 2,900 senior citizens from this town conveniently received their cash grants from the National Government, following the deployment of a LANDBANK Mobile automated teller machine (ATM) at the Tanauan Civic Center in Brgy. Canramos from October 24 to 26, 2022.
The senior citizens used their LANDBANK Prepaid Cards to receive the grants, who form part of the 3.4 million Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) beneficiaries under the Social Pension Program for Indigent Senior Citizens of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
“LANDBANK is committed to deliver accessible and convenient services especially to vulnerable sectors. Our mobile touchpoints allow us to service areas where we are needed the most,” said LANDBANK President and CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo.
The three-day deployment of the LANDBANK Mobile ATM in Tanauan allowed beneficiaries to activate their LANDBANK Prepaid Cards and withdraw the loaded cash aid free of charge, helping them to save time and transportation-related costs.
“The LANDBANK mobile ATM deployment in Tanauan greatly benefits our UCT beneficiaries, as they have easy access to withdraw their money from their cards within the venue of the card release. I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to LANDBANK for the swift response to my request. Your continued support is highly appreciated and I look forward to our partnership in public service,” said Tanauan Mayor Ma. Gina E. Merilo.
Through the LANDBANK Prepaid Cards, UCT beneficiaries from Tanauan can now receive government subsidies in a timely manner and withdraw cash for free in the LANDBANK Easy Access Facility (LEAF) located in Brgy. Buntay and from LANDBANK ATMs in neighboring towns.
They can also use the Prepaid Cards to make cashless purchases for essential supplies in groceries, drugstores, and other accepting merchants via Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals.
The LANDBANK Prepaid Cards were recently upgraded into transaction accounts to provide beneficiaries with wider access to an array of banking services, including prepaid card loading via LANDBANK branches, fund transfers through the LANDBANK Mobile Banking App, and cash-in via LANDBANK Cash Deposit Machines (CDM).
