Hundreds of senior citizens await their turn to receive their quarterly social pension from the local government of Quezon City at the Quezon City Hall Grounds on March 12. The Commission of Population (POPCOM) said that the rising number of senior citizens is expected to exceed eight million by the end of the year, creating an aging population in the country. POPCOM added that the increase in figures will affect the economy as the government needs more funding for their medical and financial needs. (Mark Balmores)
