Bayan Muna Rep.Carlos Isagani Zarate today called on Malacañang to hasten the release of the order granting the "much needed and long awaited SSS pension hike by our senior citizens."

"We have been swamped already with queries, even complaints, from our SSS pensioners. Yet, up until now, all that the SSS management can say is they are supposedly still awaiting the order signed by Pres. Duterte," said Rep. Zarate. "Our pensioners have waited enough, thus, there is no reason at all to prolong even more their agony."
