Title: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: teejiko on May 11, 2012, 04:18:51 pm
Hi Sisses!! I didn't know about this until it was tweeted by GMA news. Being a single parent, I would like to take advantage of the scholarship program mention in this act. Anyone familiar on how do I go about this? Familiar kaya ang mga school about this act?

I think wala pa masyadong nakakaalam nito tho’ nai-pass to matagal na. gusto ko talaga [textspeak!] sa scholarship. it’s hard to be a single parent

^ hindi ko alam yung buong act pero familiar ako konti lang .. sa municipality namin may stipend/cash for single moms galing sa government pero yung below poverty line lang.. sa "scholarships" naman.. mga tesda ganun or public schools/colleges pero provided dapat na matataas pa din grades etc.. you can actually check with the school that you  prefer.

sa local programs naman .. (mga livelihood etc ng munisipyo)  sila priority .. ngayon kapag may slots pa saka isisingit yung ibang gusto din

madami pa included itong act na ito like flexible working schedules etc.. pero hindi din naman iniimplement.   :(

i see thanks sis. so sa public lang pwede? libre naman sa public talaga diba? sana meron sa private grade 5 kasi anak ko sa pasukan. (not against public school di lang kasi maganda yung experience ko sa public school dito). yung sa work naman, i agree di talaga naiimplement siguro dahil na din sa wala masyadong nakakaalam ng act na to

^you can try looking but dont get your hopes up. studying in a private school is actually a privilege, not a right sis. that's why there are public schools to cater to the rights of people to be educated.

if the school is your problem then you can try looking for other public schools that would fit your criteria of a "good enough" school. hindi naman lahat panget. nag public school din ako at ok naman ako.

Hi, just sharing with you the Solo Parent Act. I remember discussing about this in our company before to support the Solo Moms in my department. Sad  to say not all companies are updated. Check with your HR department about the Employee Guidelines. You may give them a copy for their perusal.

Post by: teejiko on June 08, 2012, 02:20:41 pm
Thanks for sharing sis. Yes that's true, not all companies know this Act. I don't know why they have not given emphasis on this Act before. Madami na ding single parents ngayon. Oh, and I've also heard that there are amendments.

"Aside from housing and educational benefits, qualified solo parents may also avail of the following:
10% discount on children’s clothing materials
15% discount on baby’s milk, food and food supplement
15% discount on all purchases of medicine for children (5 years old and below)"

I have been made aware of this when a colleague applied for a solo parent's leave.  This is a leave of seven (7) days per year which is non-deductible from the employee's leave credits.

She showed me her solo parent's ID.   I searched the net and found that a solo parent can apply for a Solo Parent Identification Card (Solo Parent ID) from the City/Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office. The comprehensive package of services for solo parents includes livelihood, self-employment and skills development, employment-related benefits, psychosocial, educational, health and housing services.

To get a Solo Parent ID, the parent needs to present:

a. Barangay certificate residency in the area
b. Documents /evidence that the applicant is a solo parent (e.g. death certificate of spouse, declaration of nullity of marriage, medical certificate (if incapacitated)
c. ITR or certification for the barangay/municipal treasurer
 
For more information on solo parent ID, visit the DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) website FAQs regarding the Solo Parent ID.

Hello,

Just want to share my knowledge about solo parents benefits:

Solo parent with above minimum salary benefits:

1. 7 days additional Leave
2. Flexible working schedule as long as it will not affect the company.
3. non discrimination ek ek.... meaning if the company wants to promote you, being a solo mom will not hinder the company to put you into higher position.

Solo parent below minimum:

1. educational benefit not for the kid but for mom continuing study
2. housing benefits ek ek
oh well basta marami ang sa below minimum... dont want to elaborate... lols

Sad to say , some employees do abuse this benefit. MAy dati kaming employee panay ang leave. We have a benefit of 15 days SL and 15 days VL ,at lahat iyon ginagamit niya , then may additional 7 days pa. Then later after she resigned, her friend told us ,di naman pala talaga siya solo parent (based sa real definition) . Nasa abroad pala husband . Kasi naman kung ganoon lang pala na konting tanung tanong ,ok na. Marami nga mag aabuse at mag pretend na "solo Parent " sila.

No offense meant doon sa talagang qualified.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: maldita08 on June 16, 2012, 09:44:08 am
thats sad nga..sa company nyo ba hindi siya declared na married? sa ibang DSWD center kasi nag CI talaga sila..siguro hindi lang talaga mahigpit yung sa area nila..
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: snowberry on June 17, 2012, 03:56:48 pm
Well, what she said is separated na and she has that solo parent card.

The outcome tuloy is the HR avoids hiring single parents. They are being discriminated tuloy. Of course, HR will not reason out that being a single parent is the reason for not being hired  .

Sana na lang if the company is already giving generous leave benefits like ours, hindi na applicable itong ganito. Govenrment mandated leave is only 5 days, doon siguro applicable yung plus 7 days.
Allergic na kasi mga foreign companies sa sangkatutak na leaves and holidays

birth cert of child
certificate issued by the Barangay Captain indicating the circumstances of my being a solo parent
barangay cert
COE
1x1 picture (2pcs)
affidavit of solo parent

ang laking tulong nito sa akin. so sad lang yung iba pala inaabuso ito :(

Post by: momentum on September 11, 2012, 10:13:18 am
omg im so happy to have found this thread!  :D

I just got regularized kasi and my mom wants me to add her as my dependent sa Maxicare aside from my daughter. I am a single mom too. Kainis kasi covered ng HMO namin is employees lang so I have to pay pa for my daughter's coverage, etc.

The problem is, married ako :( so our nurse is asking me proof of being a single mom and so I think the Solo Parent ID is what they are after.

You guys gave great tips, thanks so much. I have to ask DSWD in our area ano mga requirements. Maybe I should get it sa Municipal where I got married (Las Pinas) though parang ayoko dun. Pwede kaya sa Makati nalang instead kahit sa Paranaque ako nakatira?Isa ata sa mga requirements you guys mentioned is the Declaration of nullity of marriage, gosh, I wish I could get that kaso mukang matatagalan and it will involve money.

hays sana makuha ko ito..

@ sis momentum, sis ako din single mom pero married ako eh
hindi ko pa naasikaso yun nullity ng marriage ko, how much kaya magasikaso nun?

I want to have the Solo Parent ID kasi need ko rin sya since ako lang
magisa nag provide sa baby ko.. hayz..

^ madali lang kunin sis..kuha ka na :)
yeah ako kahit gusto ko gawin yang annulment na yan hays wala ako pera for that and I don't want my Dad to pay for it (muna) kasi malapit na mag-school anak ko, he promised to help me with her schooling next year..need ko muna i-set priorities ko eh..di pwede bira lang ng bira, tsaka sinuswerte naman ex ko na uupo lang siya at aantayin niyang ma-annul kami samantalang ako nagkakadarapa taking care of our kid and spending for the annulment  >:( kaya tinggal ko muna siya sa priorities ko..baby steps muna ako until makabangon ako

Question mga sissies, regardless if you have a work or not pwede mag apply? Kasi sa call center ako nagwo work eh baka mamaya nyan i-decline if i applied for one. Halos lahat kasi ng tao akala pag nasa call center ka eh napaka laki ng sueldo..

@sis momentum: yung friend ko married, but she didn't declare her husband as one of her dependents. Maxicare din ang HMO namin sa office and base sa new policy nila - if you're separated, legally or not - you have the right to chose your dependents basta ide declare mo lang s HR na hiwalay and kung ilang taon na. :)

Yes you have the right to choose sino dependent mo. I never declared my ex as my dependent sa HMO, SSS, etc. About sa solo parent leave, sabi ng HR namin subject for approval pa daw. Mukang ako ang unang makaka-avail nito if ever

nice to find this thread..  :)

i'm also a single mom. and the 7-days additional leaves is really useful for a working single mom like me. fortunately, the companies I've been working with (multi-national ones) do not discriminate against single moms (unlike the one mentioned by sis snowberry). tip lang din for single mommies who use their 7-days SPL (solo parent leaves) -- when you file your SPL, aside from including a copy of the Solo Parent ID, try to include some proof na ginamit natin talaga ang SPL natin for the kids (like medical certificate from his pedia, or school letters for their school activities na needed ang parents). our bosses and the company HR will, at least, see na sa bata talaga ginamit yung additional 7-days leave. i usually do this whenever i use my SPL. in the first, those additional leaves are really meant to be used for our kids, not for our personal use. our Sick Leaves and Vacation Leaves, should be for our personal use.

OK sana ang solo parent benefits.

Ang problema sa akin, freelancer ako. Work at home mom. Di ko rin mapapakinabangan ang benefits as long as yun ang status ng employment ko - unless bumalik ako at magpahire sa office.

Basically it's no work no pay for me.

Thank you mga sis.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: slickchick on January 07, 2013, 09:22:27 am
^ sis, as per my understanding, ang alam ko na free education lang (without any necessary examinations) are those coming from public schools (in elementary and high school). if you want your kids to be granted scholarships, most of the private schools require the children to undergo examinations and/or interviews. most probably din hihingan ka rin ng proof of income, kasi syempre they have to consider if hindi mo talaga afford magpa-aral. hope this helps.  :)

^^ yup happened to me. may scholarship na binibigay yung private school na pinapasukan ng kid ko. the school still ask proof of income (or no income, from the barangay) at kailangan below a specific income (sa school ng kid ko P85,000 for the single parent). tapos, may interview rin.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: biancs on February 02, 2013, 02:41:33 am
i was able to use na my SPL when my daughter took her entrance exam . Sobrang thankful sa mga sisters natin dating nag bigay ng inputs and experiences nila.

^ ms_secret, ideally sabi sa batas you have to be with the company for one year, whether continously or "broken". Pero in my case discretion padin ng company nyo, kasi ako, wala pa ko one year eh pero nakapag avail na ko. Di lang pwdeng biglaan kailangan talaga naka plot. So di pwde (in my case) gamitin if ever me sakit si bagets,

Sharing my experience in getting the ID:
1. I went to Manila City Hall and went straight to the office ( asa ground lang sya mezzanine area). They gave me the list:
 http://tinypic.com/r/2dkvpx/6

2.Luckily almost complete na ko sa docs, except, yung Affidavit of Solo Parent, which i was told to get from any of our district councilors FOR FREE. You have to have pala cedula ( get it there din sa cityhall). I got it in a couple of minutes (me template naman sila at cucustomize lang ). I just paid 100 for the notary. I had it photocopied para me copy ako.

3. In my case, I submitted it with The Original Barangay Certificate, Original COE ( your annual salary has to be specified there, Affidavit of Solo Parent , birth Cert ( xerox, bring na din the original incase they want to see it), and 2 pcs 1X1 id pic. 

4.I just filled out a form and waited for my ID. Got it in  10 Mins. :)

Me class - class sya. Like me I'm class II, i just don't know what it means, I guess base sa salary mo. and then valid sya for a year which you have to renew yearly.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: slickchick on February 04, 2013, 08:05:06 am
^ mas complicated pala sis sa Manila - kasi may classes pa.  ;D  sa QC kasi, wala naman classes/types yung single parents (well at least it's not reflected in our Solo Parent IDs). mas mabilis lang ang release ng Solo Parent ID sa Manila. sa QC kasi, it took a few days (almost a week) before na-release ID ko. same thing with renewal. iiwan mo yung old ID, and then need balikan yung new ID after about 3-5 days.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: biancs on February 04, 2013, 09:20:38 pm
wala naman implications so far akong nakikita sa nakalagay sa ID ko. Simpleng " II" lang , parang code for something. siguro by salary. :), Medyo mabilis nga sa Manila

i am planning to transfer my daughter from a different school. kasi based daw sa salary ng parent yung magiging tuition ng bata. i wrote on the form that the school gave me na single parent ako. actually wala pa naman sila hinihingi na katibayan like yung solo parent id ko nga, pag hiningi yung certification na lang muna ibibigay ko. sana makatulong!

Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: freelancer_babe on February 08, 2013, 02:12:39 pm
sis, i'm not a lawyer here.

i think most benefits are best enjoyed by those who are employed - as in employed sa work. may mga leaves sila.

then the others - such as discount sa health - may requirement na dapat below poverty line daw.

that's what I understand here: http://www.census.gov.ph/content/q-solo-parents-welfare-act-and-parental-leave

di pa ako kumukuha solo parent ID because of what i understand doon sa Q & A. kasi freelancer/self-employed ako. thus, di ko rin magagamit (no leaves, and i don't earn below poverty line)

but of course, i'll get one pag nagdecide akong bumalik sa corporate world. surely, i'll need the additional leaves.

since you are a student. you may benefit well from it, since you do not have any income yet.

Post by: zu_0420 on February 13, 2013, 06:35:49 pm
^freelancer din ako sis. :) May nabasa ako sa Solo Parents Welfare Act na nagsasabi na may discount on medicines and stuff, pero galing ako ng DSWD kanina, wala naman daw yun sa handouts na binigay sa kanila. Hindi rin ako required magsubmit pa ng mga Affidavit and all. Pinafill-up lang ako ng form, tapos submit ng birth certificate ni baby and 2pcs of 1x1 picture.

hi, sis!

ask ko lang, did you go to the school and asked if they offer scholarship for single parents? ang prob ko kasi, nag-exam na before yung anak ko and then pumasa naman siya, so he gets 10k less na sa tuition fee niya every school year until he graduates from high school. baka hindi na nila i-offer sakin yung single parent scholarship because of that. :-\
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: freelancer_babe on May 15, 2013, 06:31:49 am
^ You can always ask naman, para maaga pa lang applied na ang scholarship - I mean without spending funds.

Sa school ng kid ko, these scholarships are announced later. Kumbaga binabayaran ko pa ang tuition fee bago nila i-announce na may scholarship pala. So the refund happens later.

Usually din sis ganun, pag inavail mo na ang isang scholarship, di na pwede sa isa pa. Do ask around.

additional question na rin to sis momentum's question -- is the scholarship thing offered by DepEd or DSWD? or depende sa school ng bata? ang mahal na kasi ng tuition fees ngayon, especially sa private schools. kaya lang syempre, as mothers, we want to give our kids the best education possible. so kahit mahal, i really try to put my son in a private school. thanks in advance mga sis!

mga sis ano yung scholarship na inooffer sa inyo? and what level in elementary inooffer ito?

Sa school ng kid ko, the scholarship is offered late - kung kailan nakapagbayad na ng first installment saka pa lang i-a-announce. The scholarship is offered by the school, and it depends sa income ng single parent. The last time I asked, the requirement for a single parent was - less than P85,000 per annum income ang qualified.

Meron ding scholarship sa school ng kid for those na nakapag-top sa batch nila. You know, those first and second honors - they get full or half tuition fee discount for the next year's tuition.

Magha-high school na ang kid ko, and she wants to be in the junior band - may scholarship na naman doon which I try to apply kung makuha ang kid ko sa band.

But well, do go ask your school. Mas maganda kung sa enrollment pa lang, may scholarship na agad. But in my case, cash out pa muna ako bago makapag-apply ng mga scholarships.

additional question na rin to sis momentum's question -- is the scholarship thing offered by DepEd or DSWD? or depende sa school ng bata? ang mahal na kasi ng tuition fees ngayon, especially sa private schools. kaya lang syempre, as mothers, we want to give our kids the best education possible. so kahit mahal, i really try to put my son in a private school. thanks in advance mga sis!

I don't think private schools offered DepEd or DSWD scholarships - I never encountered one. Maybe the reason why such is not offered by DepEd or DSWD is that you have the option to put the kid in a public school (there are good public school around naman, especially the public science high schools which also beats a lot regular private high schools) where the tuition is Free or minimal because these schools are paid by our own taxes.

^ thanks sa info sis. my son is just an incoming grade 2 student. and honestly, and with due respect to public schools, there are only a handful public elementary schools that are at par with their private counterparts. but i am considering and open to enrolling him in a science high school, especially if he continues to exhibit academic excellence later on.

Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: freelancer_babe on May 15, 2013, 09:03:59 am
^^ True it's probably difficult to get a good public elementary schools.

But I think we both agree a public science high school is better and it would save us money in the long run. We could just put those funds into a more expensive college degree instead (think - doctor, pilot?). Unfortunately my kid couldn't make it into science high, but I still have chances of getting scholarship with her joining the school band in a private high school (though I still have to spend money on her music lessons outside the school).

^ No problem. Try mo kayang tumawag sa school to save time.

^ sis, sa QC area, you just have to bring your old solo parent ID. and tatanungin ka lang ng a few questions (tipong nangangamusta lang - to verify if solo parent ka pa rin). medyo matagal lang ang pagiintay kasi chini-check pa ata nila if single pa rin. in my case inabot ng mga 2 hrs bago na-release new ID ko. however, may nakasabay ako na sinabihan na bumalik after 2 or 3 days kasi may ichi-check pa daw. iam not sure kung ano yung need i-check sa kanya.

^ sis, sa pagkakaalam ko, in your case, dapat ma-prove mo na your (ex)-hubby abandoned you.. tipong walang contact and support sa son mo. with regards to the number of years na dapat hiwalay or no-contact na kayo, di ako sure about it.. try getting in touch with the DSWD or social services branch in your city of residence. sila rin mag-assess sa eligibility mo, in case you apply for a Solo Parent ID. hope this helps.

tuwing birthday lang naman ng anak pumupunta sa house ng mama ko ang ex ko, he buys toys and chocolates for and wala talagang ni ha ni ho or any other means support other times of the year. 
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: slickchick on December 12, 2013, 01:42:33 pm
^ sis, so basically, you go home to leyte to see your son and your mom? if that's the case, i think it would be better if you apply for your Solo Parent ID in Leyte. one of the requirements kasi is barangay clearance and the clearance usually comes from your barangay of residence. in case naman you need to avail of the solo parent leaves sa work, your Solo Parent ID that was issued in leyte should be honored in cebu (your place of work), as long as para sa son mo yung paggagamitan mo ng leaves mo.  :)

P.S. I hope your mom and your son were not badly affected by typhoon Yolanda. hope they're ok.  :)

Solo Parent welfare act is advantageous to single moms working for a local employer.

I'm a freelancer, daming benefits ang di ko makuha because I'm basically self-employed. Like, I can't apply for solo parent leave, because it doesn't apply to freelancers. Walang leave ang mga self-employed/freelancers.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: slickchick on December 16, 2013, 05:22:15 pm
^ sis, in terms of the solo parent leaves, it would be difficult for you to avail it. i guess even if you're a contractual, it would still be difficult (i.e. no work, no pay policy for contractuals). not for anything and with due respect to your being a freelancer, being self-employed would give you more flexibility in terms of planning out your schedule. unlike employed single moms who have to follow the usual office/company hours and usual work days. I do hope amendments would be made to the Solo Parent welfare act to cover not only work leaves and work schedules. I hope it can be structured, similar to how the Senior Citizens law works - i.e. providing discount to children's medicines, clothing, school supplies, and even tuition fees.
Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: freelancer_babe on December 16, 2013, 10:14:41 pm
^ oo nga no? pati pala contractual kawawa.

yap sis, there are pains to being a freelancer. i like the flexibility, but unlike what most think, not all freelancers do have that time flexibility (there are freelancers who still work on a fixed schedule). not to mention we don't have benefits and bonuses.

i really do hope there's more to get from the solo parent welfare act. having plenty of discounts will help a lot.

sis, sobrang hassle naman yan... but i think depende sa city where you reside. sa quezon city kasi, hindi naman ganyan yung requirement sa pagri-renew. need lang dalhin yung old solo parent ID. and then a short interview. pero need pa rin mag-antay ng ilang araw bago makuha yung new ID.

I also tried applying for a Solo Parent ID. Went to our City Hall. Bastos ng andon sa desk. I was with my boyfriend (who is not the dad of my son) that time and she right away assumed we lived together by saying "Naku ma'am, di ka maaapprove nyan kung magkasama na kayo sa bahay." I asked her "Pano mo naman nasabing magkasama kami sa house? And she responded by saying "Eh magkasama kayo." What a stupid answer! l then asked her if she gets paid for what she's doing or volunteer work ba, sabi nya empleyado sya don so I told her "You are not paid to assume, you are paid to assist people who come here to your office." Then I talked to the person beside her if they have a form or list of requirements and she handed me one and she was much nicer too.
By the way this is in Muntinlupa.

Ask ko lang mga sisses, nagcconduct pa talaga sila ng house visit to verify if your child is in your custody? Kasi nag-apply ako sa Makati last week, I gathered all requirements except yung affidavit before going to MSWD, so meron akong brgy certificate, indicating my current residency and ceritifying that I am a solo parent, tapos ITR, photocopy of IDs, 2 pcs 1x1 pic, and birth certificate of my kid showing that his surname is same as mine (I'm not married).  So pagpunta ko nga sa MSWD 4/F, chineck yung mga requirements ko then sinabihan ako kumuha ng affidavit na nasa 18th floor pa. Kumuha naman ako for P50. Pagbalik ko sa office ng MSWD, ibang tao na humarap saken at ininterview na ko.  Sinabi ko na 6 mos pa lang ako sa makati nagrrent, while yung anak ko nasa cavite, at umuuwi ako every weekend. Na-decline ako, inadvise ako na hindi nila pwede i-approve kasi daw hindi sila mkakapaghouse visit kung wala rin pala sa makati yung bata, dapat daw sa Cavite ako mag-apply.  Ok na sakin un, I'll just go to Cavite pero sayang lang din kasi yung effort. Nag-leave pa ko sa office para lang asikasuhin.

QC is now pushing for solo parents to have a community. They are getting officers na daw per barangay coz the community is getting bigger. As for the complete benefits list, it will be given daw once you receive your ID.

FOr additional info lang.. our Councilor will be providing free affidavit for solo parent sa constituents nya. Good Job!! Less haggard sa pambayad at pagkuha. So sa mga taga-QC i suggest you check with your barangay or district councilor coz they might be giving the free affidavit din. They said Mayor Bistek is pushing for this project.

As for getting the ID, bravo to QC at naisip nila yung project na to. Now all the solo parent in our barangay will get their requirements collated at isang pasahan nalang sa pagkuha. So in my case, xerox ng birth cert and ID pic nalang kelangan ko pala ibigay. The Brgy will process our certificates all at the same time. Super saya!  ;D ;D ;D

if last year daw ang huling pag-renew, ang requirements for renewal starting Jan 2015 is just 1x1 ID and filing up the form duon mismo sa DSWD, also surrendering your old ID

walang ng interview. wala narin affidavit etc
within a week nag home visit sila, they just verified if the situation improved or not..wala pang 5mins ang interview kay mama (coz I was at work) tapos na. The lady who did the interview even dropped my new ID duon sa security guard namin sa subdivision coz I said I might not be able to make it at 5pm sa munisipyo to pick it up.  ;D

^ sis, in all honesty, the only benefit i'm getting from my solo parent ID is yung additional 7-days leave ko na nagagamit ko kapag may school activities ang son ko, or if I need to have him checked sa pedia nya. nagtanong na ako sa mercury and sa school nila, wala naman discount for single parents.

in fairness, mukha na talagang ID ang solo parent ID sa quezon city. i went to social services yesterday sa QC city hall. kung dati ay cardboard ang solo parent ID (na medyo malaki pa - around 5x5 inches), ngayon ID na talaga sya made of plastic and kasya na sa wallet (size is around 2x3 inches). at nakukuha na rin agad, hindi na kailangan balikan pa after a week.. good job qc city hall!  :)

Hi!

I have a question, anyone from Marikina? Kasi hindi ko alam if I need to submit yung original copy ng birth certificate or just the photocopy. I will apply pa lang, hindi ito for renewal. Long overdue.

Another thing, nung nag-submit na kayo sa company niyo na meron na kayong solo parent ID, how long did it take para mag-reflect sa system niyo yung additional leave (for solo parent)? Thanks!

Post by: slickchick on May 24, 2016, 11:22:31 am
^ hi sis! sagutin ko yung 2nd question mo kasi gamit ko talaga yung solo parent leaves ko sa work. sa company namin (an IT company), i just informed my manager and the HR department that I will be using my solo parent leave. kapag nagfa-file ako ng leave, I specify that the purpose of that leave is really for my son - i.e. birthday, enrollment, check up sa doctor, hospitalization, etc. tapos I attach a scanned copy of my solo parent ID dun sa email ko. when i joined my current company, aware naman kasi sila na solo parent ako. I submitted a copy of my son's birth certificate kasi dependent ko rin sya sa mga company benefits ko and gov't-mandated benefits (like philhealth). kaya madali ma-check nung HR namin na solo parent talaga ako, and madali rin ma-approve yung solo parent leaves ko. try to check sis with your manager/company (HR) how they process solo parent leaves. hope this helps.  :)

^ Sis if you're a single mom, magaapply ka sa local DSWD kung san ka nakatira. Submit the requirements then once you get your ID, give a copy to your HR then you can avail na yung 7 days leave benefits related sa needs ng kid mo, ex. graduation, doctors appointment, etc.

Backread ka nalang for other requirements ;)

Im about to renew my Solo Parent ID. I got my old Solo Parent ID in Taytay, Rizal in 2012 and never had the chance to renew it. Ngayon palang sana kaso im already residing in QC. My question is, i-treat pa kaya nila ito as renewal or new application na? Will surely appreciate your response sissies.

^sis ang pagkakaalam ko, kahit married ka on paper pero ikaw lang ang nagpprovide ng support sa bata and nowhere to be found yung spouse. Please correct me if Im wrong.

Parang hindi masyado kumpleto itong solo parents' act natin. Masyadong maliit yung threshold ng income parang kailangan mahirap na mahirap ka para maka benefit sa act na ito.  Pano naman yung mga (lower) middle class for example? Mga middle class ang mas malaking porsyento ng tax payers, sila yung work force.  Parang para makakuha ka ng benefits ng act na to kaialngan super hirap ng parent.

i see thanks sis. so sa public lang pwede? libre naman sa public talaga diba? sana meron sa private grade 5 kasi anak ko sa pasukan. (not against public school di lang kasi maganda yung experience ko sa public school dito). yung sa work naman, i agree di talaga naiimplement siguro dahil na din sa wala masyadong nakakaalam ng act na to

pwede po basta ma complete mo yung requirements letter from school, school ID dalhin mo po sa DSWD kasi un sinasabi nilang scholarship 1k lang po yan a year ibinibigay ng government. Either private or public school as long as SOLO Parent ka at may SOLO PArent ID ka.

Hi Single Moms ,

Share ko lang po and may question na rin ako later.

I recently renewed my Solo Parent ID.
When I was interviewed in SSDD  (Social Services Development Department) and asked if the father of my child gives monthly support, I said the truth which is yes.

Background: Hindi po kami kasal ng father ng anak ko, never kaming nagsama and though he regularly gives financial support e halos wala na rin kaming communication except sa seasonal na email.

Right then and there ang sabi ko I'm not after the whatever assistance that the government gives to solo parents all I wanted is the additional 7 days leave kasi talaga namang ang laking tulong nito lalo na't wala din naman akong yaya and parents ko ang nag-aalaga sa anak ko kapag nasa work ako.  Ni hindi ko nga ginagamit sa restaurants ang discount privilege e.

Anyways, di ko lang magets ang point na according to them nasa batas daw na hindi considered as Solo Parent kapag nakakatanggap ng pera from the other parent.  Duh??!!?  I reviewed RA 8972 and walang  nasasaad na ganun.  I don't know if I missed anything :(

Fortunately, I managed to renew my id after kong i-declare that I don't get any financial support from the father.

Ano po ba talaga and qualifications ng Solo Parent to avail of the privileges stated in RA 8972

Nakapag apply ka na ba at this time?

For the benefit ng mga mapapadaan sa thread:

1 - Yes, gumawa sila ng home visit sa akin
2 - Not sure what you mean. No need to inform ex-partner na nag a apply ka.
3 - Nope.

Hi, Sisses!

Question, pag nag-apply ba nito as in may verification na gagawin ba ang DSWD like pupunta talaga sa address mo? The thing is, wala kasi ang baby sa bahay, nasa province for the meantime kasi wala pang mahanap na yaya dito sa Manila.

Salamat po!

mga sis, may tanong ako regarding solo parent, kasi ang isang officemate ko ay single mom with two college kids na...may solo parent ID siya at nakakaavail siya ng mga leaves dito sa office...Last year, nagkaron siya ng BF and she got pregnant ngayon, since bago na ang SSS maternity benefits, pag solo parent ka pala ay 120 days ang magiging mat leave, then based sa computation ay 73K makuha nyang benefit...ang tanong niya is pwede pa ba niya gamitin yung pagiging solo parent niya dito sa pinagbubuntis nya na to ngayon since may BF siya at magkasama pa sila...

sabi ko sa kanya baka hindi na applicable for this baby ang solo parent kasi technically di naman siya solo parent dito dahil andyan at nagsasama sila ng tatay ng baby...di pa din kasi nagrereply yun Benefits personnel namin dito sa office regarding this inquiry.

sa tingin po ninyo?

^sis mysterioza_me, talaga??!! that's good news kasi yun HR namin since bago pa lang to nagsabi siya sa officemate ko na need pa i-confirm ke SSS kasi nga this time may partner siya so technically di siya solo hehe...

good to know na pwede pa pala kasi ako nalulula sa magiging bill nya sa hospital pagpapaanakan nya eh, 150K sa Lourdes Hospital sa Sta. Mesa...eh wala siya ipon, inaasahan nya lang tong SSS at yung magiging 13th month namin this month, due nya sa December 02. Jobless din kasi yung partner nya ngayon..

hi sisses, does anyone know if pro-rated ba ang 7 days solo parent leave if hindi beginning of the year na-grant? Thank u!

^hi sis! Ang mahal naman sa Lourdes Hospital, yan ba yung sa may Kalentong? If yes, i remember nung 2015 is 50k quote sa friend ko for CS under cia ni Dra. Juanita Lee. Sino OB ng friend mo po? If nag-increase, hindi naman siguro x 200% na ngayon. Parang presyong TMC na din yan. Sorry, off-topic na yata.

Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: mysterioza_me on November 09, 2019, 04:23:34 pm
^^Kung sa SSS inaalala niya, buo pa din yung 120 days. Actually if may work sana yung bf niya pwede niya pa ibigay yung 7 days sa bf niya, bale 113 days kay girl and 7 days kay bf. Ganyan kasi ginawa ng officemate ko dahil di pa eligible for paternity leave si guy kasi di pa sila kasal.


^Sis what do you mean na pro-rated? Kunwari ba ganito: June nakuha ang Solo Parent ID kung buo pa din na maeenjoy ang 7 days na Solo Parent leave or kung mababawasan na siya? Ganyan ba ibig mo sabihin? If ganyan wag ka mag-alala buo pa din yung 7 days. Maski Dec ka pa kumuha maeenjoy mo pa din yung buong 7 days bgo matapos ang taon. Tapos another 7 days uli next year.

binasa kasi namin yun IRR ng SSS pero walang nakalagay about sa solo parent na nagkaron na ng partner...sinuggest ko nalang sa kanya to go directly muna sa SSS at magtanong bago kausapin yung HR namin...

Not sure sis if yan ang binasa ninyo na doc pero nasa page 5 and 11 ang sagot. Sa officemate ko kasi may Solo Parent Id siya, actually nagrenew pa siya ng SP ID Niya malaki na ang tummy niya, binigyan pa din siya. And also hino-honor ng HR ang 120 days ML niya kasi di pa siya married sa bf niya pero si bf dun na umuuwi sa kanila. Sa 120 days na leave niya, 7 dun binigay niya kay guy as per the amended law. Nakuha niya ng buo yung bayad para sa Maternity benefits niya maski nagsasama na sila ng bf niya. Last name din ni bf ang gamit ni baby. Saka ang alam ko advance na babayaran ng company ang buong Maternity Benefits - ganyan kasi sa amin.

^Hindi ba binigay ng company ninyo ng buo yung Maternity Benefits niya before siya nag-leave? Sa company kasi naman agad binibigay nila (inaabonohan na nila), normally kasi half lang ibibigay tapos yung other half pagkapanganak na. Pero base lang sa experience ng officemate ko 120 days kinwento ang benefits and leave niya maski may partner na siya.

Fault din ng officemate ko, kasi porke alam nyang CS siya di siya nag ingat sa weight at sa sugar intake nya. Tapos yun nga walang ipon.

And yes 150k ang bill nila at package pa nakuha ng officemate ko yan. Ang hirap ng sitwasyon niya tapos wala pa siyang katuwang sa gastusin. Problema niya panggastos sa panganganak e paano pa yung pang-araw araw na gastusin nila ngayong naka-ML na siya lalo na wala pang work partner niya.

Title: Re: Solo Parent Welfare Act
Post by: mysterioza_me on November 15, 2019, 02:56:21 am
CRITERIA FOR SUPPORT

Any solo parent whose income falls below the poverty threshold as set by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and subject to the assessment of the DSWD worker in the area shall be eligible for assistance. A solo parent can directly inquire from the following agencies to avail of their services:

Health Services (DOH)

Educational Services (CHED, TESDA)

Housing (NHA)

Parental Leave (Employer, DOLE, CSC) Note: A solo parent whose income is above the poverty threshold shall enjoy only such limited benefits as flexible work schedule, parental leave and others to be determined by the DSWD.

***** so dahil above poverty threshold tayo pang parental leave lang tayo qualified haha. Yung flexible work depende siguro sa business needs kung ia-allow ng company

sayang din kasi kung lahat sana ng solo parent makinabang sa lahat ng benefits, hindi yung porke may work at "kayang magtustos" at above poverty threshold eh di na makinabang sa mga benefits...mahirap kaya para sa isang solo parent yun...

mag isa kasi kami pinalaki ng nanay ko at that time walang solo parent act so kung ano-anong work at raket para lang makakain kami, makapag aral at magkaron man lang ng maayos na buhay..ang hirap...sana mas maging maayos yang solo parent act..
