^ sis it doesn't matter kung saan ka nagwowork. I am working as well in a call center-like set-up. they don't ask naman where you work.

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

Pa join po.. :)

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 ako call center ako hindi naman nila pwede i decline e solo parent ka naman e..wala sila right na i decline ka just because you work in a call center. Get ka lang sayang iyong 7 days leave with pay nh! on top of your paid leaves iyon ah

hi
 it says sa batas.. "a) You have rendered at least one (1) year of service in the company, whether continuous or broken; "

 i started from them april , then stopped may 27th, no work from may till sept, Started working again for them sept 3rd till now. Do you think they'll acknowledge that? Di counted yun months na wala ako sa kanila?

thanks

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.

Sis, may magagawa ba ako way to send my children to school through scholarship program even im not in the Philippines? pero ang mga kids ko ay andyan sa Pinas. Maybe may magawa ako way kahit schooling lang nila ma-free coz i have 4 kids and solo lang ako nagpo-provide sa kanilang lahat.

Thank you mga sis.

^ 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.

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.

^ 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.

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

ako nga certification pa lang from dswd imus yung nakuha ko eh. wala pang id coz nasira daw yung pang-print nila, nyek! tas nung tinanong ko kelan magkaka-id di daw nila alam at tumawag tawag na lang daw ako.

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!

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.

^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.
