Aid for kin of dead brgy officials OK’d
by PIO release

Relatives of deceased barangay officials are now entitled to mortuary assistance from the city government. 

The city council approved on third and final reading the proposed ordinance granting mortuary benefit to the family of deceased incumbent elected or appointed barangay officials.

The ordinance, which will take effect 15 days after publication in a newspaper of local circulation states that the beneficiary of a deceased barangay official shall be entitled to P5,000 regardless if the cause of death is work-related or not.

Under the ordinance, beneficiaries shall immediately notify the Office of the City Mayor through its Special Services Division (SSD) if a barangay official passes.

The SSD personnel shall assist the beneficiaries in processing the claim with concerned offices of the local government pursuant to the provisions of Department of the Interior and Local Government Memorandum Circular 2008-24, which provides for the revised implementing rules and regulations of Executive Order 115 to ensure effective and efficient service delivery to the beneficiaries, to ensure expeditious and prompt release of checks to legitimate beneficiaries or claimants, and to establish the relationship of the beneficiary or claimant to the deceased barangay official.

Beneficiaries must submit a death certificate of the barangay official certified by the Local Civil Registrar or the Philippine Statistics Authority, certificate of incumbency to be issued by the City Local Government Operations Officer, sufficient identification and proof of relationship of the beneficiary or claimant, and other documents deemed necessary.

The ordinance stated that the sustainability of the program shall be subject to the availability of funds.

The mortuary benefit shall be used solely for the mortuary services of the deceased barangay official.

The ordinance added that the local government shall not render any mortuary assistance to a barangay official whose death is caused or resulting from self-inflicted injury; accident while under the influence of prohibited drugs or liquor; and while in any attempted commission of, or willful participation in any crime punishable by a law or measure.
