City Government of Valenzuela awards the six centenarians in the city at the AVR, Legislative Building, Valenzuela City Hall, on October 28, 2022.

The Office of The Senior Citizens Affair (OSCA), City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), and Mayor WES Gatchalian granted PhP 50,000 for each centenarian. This is a yearly ceremony every month of October in time for the celebration of the Elderly Filipino Week.

Aside from the Republic Act No. 10868, also known as the “Centenarian Act of 2016” which mandates to gift centenarians the amount of PhP 100,000, the City Government of Valenzuela grants another PhP 50,000 as an additional incentive for the centenarians. This is under Ordinance No. 300, Series of 2016, or the “Centenarian Ordinance of Valenzuela City”. Which was amended by Ordinance No. 652, Series of 2020, which raises the cash incentive from PhP 20,000 to PhP 50,000 for each recipient. Centenarians will receive the cash incentive every month of October.
