It is quite amazing to see the local government at work. It was an enjoyable visit to the OSCA (Office of Senior Citizens Affairs) to apply for my SC card. It was a good twenty minutes wait then I got my official ID. I am all set to enjoy the perks and privileges of a senior citizen….hooray!
Next I went to Philhealth for an update of my Member’s Data Record. I am now officially a non-paying member. Gone are the monthly payments of health premiums starting October this year. The commute going there was longer than the time I spent at their office, a mere five minutes. Seniors are always on the priority lanes allotted in each establishment. It’s quite nice to see and feel the difference.
It is indeed a blessing when the government truly works for you.
