The increase in the monthly pension of senior citizens from P500 to at least P1,000 has not been yet signed into law by outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte.

This is contrary to a Tiktok video posted by user bahogete on June 25.

The video uses an audio from a newscast in 2015 about the approval of the congress of the Housebill 5842 or the P2,000 across-the-board increase for Social Security System (SSS) pensioners.

The post’s caption also mistakenly thanked incoming President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. for the supposed increase.

FactRakers is a Philippines-based fact-checking initiative of journalism majors at the University of the Philippines-Diliman working under the supervision of Associate Professor Yvonne T. Chua of the University of the Philippines’ Journalism Department. Associate Professor Ma. Diosa Labiste, also of the Journalism Department, serves as editorial consultant.

The name of the initiative, coined from the words “fact” and “raker,” is inspired by the term “muckrakers,” first used in the early 1900s by American president Theodore Roosevelt to express his annoyance at progressive, reform-minded journalists at the time.
