Tinglayan, Kalinga – Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries of the municipality of Tinglayan continue to get their cash support from the program the easier way through the use of the Point of Sales (POS) kit device.

The service enables the beneficiaries to withdraw their money from the cards without having to go to the ATM machines in Tabuk City and queue up. The city is the only place where ATMs are.

When using the POS kit, the 4Ps recipients do not need Automated Teller Machines (ATM) as it can also perform like the said machine. It could help in determining the recipient’s balance however, it does not dispense money.

The use of said device which is more convenient and accessible to yTinglayan beneficiaries was introduced in the municipality last year.

To get the monetary aid, the staff of the Treasure Link Cooperative Society (TLCS), a partner since 2021 are the ones assisting.

4Ps only have to pay a minimal a service fee, according to Larae Lactao, Information Officer of Tinglayan LGU.
