Senate Bill 253: “Through the years, the plight of these Barangay Tanods are often neglected. Although they are given some benefits for the task they perform, it is a fact that such benefits are not commensurate with the risk they are encountering while they are on duty.

Lacson Bill Boosts Insurance Benefits for Barangay Captains

Barangay captains who risk their lives as front-liners in ensuring security and rendering basic services to their communities may finally get a much-needed benefit in the form of a higher insurance coverage, if a bill by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is passed into law.

Senate Bill 254, the β€œAdditional Barangay Captains’ Insurance Act of 2016,” seeks to give barangay captains insurance benefits other than those provided by the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) under Republic Act No. 8291.

β€œIn the conduct of these functions, especially during emergencies and calamities, barangay chief executives are the front-liners, putting their lives at risk in the service of their respective constituents,” Lacson said in his bill, adding the added insurance is β€œin recognition of their contribution to the community and in advancing their welfare as public servants.”

Ping: Dagdag na P200,000 sa Barangay Captain na Mapapatay sa Serbisyo

Kumilos na si Senador Panfilo Lacson para madagdagan ang mga umiiral na benepisyong ibinibigay ng pamahalaan sa mga kapitan ng mga barangay, kapalit ng pamumuno at serbisyong ipinagkakaloob nila sa mga nasasakupan.

Sa Senate Bill 254 na iniakda ni Lacson at pinamagatang β€œAdditional Barangay Captains Insurance Act of 2016,” isinusulong nito ang pagkakaloob ng seguro sa mga kapitan ng barangay na mapapatay o kaya ay mapapahamak sa pagganap sa tungkulin.

Sa ilalim ng nabanggit na panukala, nilinaw ni Lacson na kung tatambangan o mapapatay sa pagganap sa tungkulin ang isang barangay captain, tatanggap ang kanyang mga naulila ng P200,000; karagdagang P50,000 para sa pagpapalibing; at P100,000 sa nagastos sa gamutan.
