Oplan Tabang MISAMIS Oriental -- The provincial government of Misamis Oriental launched on Wednesday “Operation Tabang (Help) Visayas” to provide free communication access to relatives in the Visayas. Provincial administrator Edmundo Pacamalan, Jr. said that the provincial social welfare and development office (PSWDO) would establish a help desk at the provincial capitol to allow people to call their relatives in the Visayas region for free. He said that the provincial government would also spearhead a fund raising campaign for the victims of typhoon Yolanda. Amelia Andea, head of the PSWDO, said that, at the moment, the province of Misamis Oriental could not extend cash donations from its coffers since the meager calamity fund was spent for evacuees of typhoon Yolanda and Zoraida here.

Out of stocks DAVAO City -- Local stores are running low on stocks due to the high demand for relief goods being supplied to disaster-hit areas, particularly in the Visayas which was hard-hit by super typhoon “Yolanda” last week, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) said Friday. “Local stores run out of supply of stocks because our needs (supply requirement) are increasing,” DSWD 11 Regional Director Priscilla Razon said. DSWD regional offices are mandated to augment assistance in times of extreme devastation inflicted by strong disasters in any part of the country. Razon cited for instance the volume of sardines and rice supplies and other food packs which DSWD would purchase to meet its commitment for relief assistance in disaster-affected areas in Mindanao and elsewhere in the country, as needed.

Small mining sites identified By CARMELITO Q. FRANCISCO Correspondent

DAVAO City -- The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) has identified six sites in three Compostela Valley towns for small-scale mining under the government’s Minahang Bayan program. T he s e s ite s , s ai d No el B. Angeles, head of the regional MGB office’s mine environment and safety division, are in the towns of Pantukan, Maragusan and Nabunturan. The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples has already endorsed the sites to its central office. Each site will have about 20 hectares and will be mined by smallscale miners, who will be required to develop a plan Mining/PAGE 11

LABOR-INTENSIVE SECTOR. As the US begins to import Philippine bananas, industry players expect to employ more workers which bode well for Mindanao where plantations are mostly located.

BETP director Senen M. Perlada said exports generate job opportunities locally aside from its contribution to the gross domestic products (GDP) growth. “It can be estimated that every percent increase in Philippine exports is accompanied by a 0.58 percent growth in gross domestic product (GDP) and every percent growth in GDP is accompanied by 157,000 jobs. That’s how important our exports are,” Perlada explained. “Exports keep jobs at home,” he added. Latest accounts from the National Statistics Office (NSO) showed that the September performance of

the export industry went up by 10.3 percent versus the exports earning for the month of August. However, the NSO data also revealed the unstable growth of the export industry for the first nine months of the year.

BPOs consider Davao for backup By CARMELITO Q. FRANCISCO Correspondent

DAVAO City -- Business process outsourcing (BPO) firms are looking at this city as a backup location in case of major disruptions by natural calamities. Erriberto P. Barriga, Jr., executive vice-president of the Information and Communications Technology Association-Davao, said the city has b een identif ied as a go o d backup site for companies that need redundant infrastructure facilities. “In this business, redundancy is recommended,” said Mr. Barriga, p oi nt i n g o ut t h at b u s i n e s s e s

operating in areas hit by disasters need operations continuity. “The backup system can also function as an expansion whenever the operation of the main system needs to be augmented,” he said. This would, however, depend on the efficiency of the communications systems under Manila-based firms. The idea of Davao as a backup location, Mr. Barriga said, came about after two companies inquired if they could set up their expansion in the city after the earthquake that hit Cebu and Bohol last month. bpo/PAGE 11

‘Yolanda’ not expected to greatly Processing time of business impact on PHL growth, inflation permits cut down in Tagum

MANILA -- A ranking central bank official does not see the impact of Typhoon Yolanda putting a big dent on the Philippines’ 2013 output. Bangko S entral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Deputy Governor Diwa Guinigundo,

in a briefing Friday, said the three affected regions namely Regions 7-9 accounts for

about 13 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). He cited that with a 7.6 percent first half output, a n d t h e t h i rd qu a r t e r figure “within range based on leading indicators” he expects a “robust” domestic expansion for this year. “I t h i n k i n ge n e r a l economic growth will still be doable within the range of six to seven percent percent

(for this year) but it’s difficult to quantify,” he said. On Thurs d ay, Socioeconomic Planning Secretar y Arsenio M. Balisacan said Typhoon Yolanda has the capacity to reduce GDP by 0.3-0.8 percent. Guinigundo declined to give any figures noting that the National Disaster Risk impact/PAGE 11

Higher real estate sales boost Filinvest’s profits HIGHER real estate sales bolstered the net income of Filinvest Land Inc (FLI) in the first nine months of the year. In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, the Gotianun-led property developer posted a net income of P2.44 billion for the January to September period, 22 percent higher than the P2.01 billion in the same nine months of last year. Total revenues went up by 26 percent to P8.47 billion from P6.74 billion a year ago driven by higher real estate sales and rental income. Real estate sales increased 30 percent to P6.974 billion from P5.36 billion in 2012,

SAN MIGUEL Pure Foods Company, Inc. on Thursday inaugurated a grain terminal in Batangas, a P2.5-billion investment that is expected to help it trim expenses. The Golden Bay Grain Terminal, built in the last two years, can handle more than two million tons of grains annually, Florentino B. Policarpio, president of San Miguel Mills, Inc., said. San Miguel Mills is a unit of Pure Foods, a subsidiary of conglomerate San Miguel Corp.

CorporateWorld

while rental revenues inched up 8 percent to P1.496 billion from P1.39 billion previously. FLI attributed the sales performance to the rollout of new mid-rise buildings and house-and-lot projects in diverse locations, intensive marketing activities and attractive pricing. Growth in rental revenues mainly came from rental income at Grand Cenia and higher occupancy in both mall and offices spaces. Equity in net earnings from FLI’s 20 percent-owned affiliate, Filinvest Alabang Inc, the developer of the 244-hectare Filinvest City in Alabang, Muntinlupa amounted to P86 million at end-September.

Food firm sees savings from grain terminal

BusinessWeek MINDANAO

The terminal, which is now the receiving facility of Pure Foods’ grain imports, will consolidate incoming shipments, resulting in cheaper freight cost. Before, grain imports of companies under Pure Foods were shipped to various commercial ports in the country. “We are saving anywhere between 3-7% per ton, depending on market price,” Mr. Policarpio said. grains/PAGE 11

Relief promised for storm-hit banks PDIC processes depositors’ THE BANGKO Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will provide regulatory relief to banks affected by typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), an official has said. “ Ty p i c a l l y, w e w i l l provide relief to banks in all areas declared to be under a state of calamity by the NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council),” BSP Deputy Governor Nestor A. Espenilla, Jr. said. “We’re just waiting for the official word. For sure, we will come up with the standard package that we normally give. But we’re also studying what additional measures we can give, because I think we all saw the extent of the devastation...,” Mr. Espenilla said at the sideline of the Rural Bankers’ Association of the Philippines’ annual symposium. The official said the usual regulatory relief granted by the BSP to banks in areas hit by calamities includes the suspension of penalties for any legal reserves deficiencies and delays in submission of supervisory reports. All affected banks may also provide financial assistance to officials and employees hit by the quake, even if it goes beyond the scope of their BSP-approved fringe benefit programs.

Typhoon victims line up for free rice at a businessman’s warehouse in Tacloban city, which was battered by Typhoon Yolanda.

Thrift, rural and cooperative banks may exclude the loans of hardhit borrowers from the computation of their past due ratios, provided these loans are restructured or given relief. Their general loan loss provision will be reduced to 1% from 5% for the restructured loans. They will also be allowed to book an allowance for probable losses on a staggered basis for a maximum of five years, covering all types of loans. Rediscounting banks’ obligations are likewise granted a grace period to

settle outstanding obligations with the BSP. STILL COUNTING COSTS Asked about the impact of the typhoon on the industry, Mr. Espenilla said the BSP is still assessing the situation. “We’ve been monitoring the situation since over the weekend, but... in the Tacloban area, communication has been quite difficult. Even the banks themselves, they’re having problems contacting their people there,” he said. “We’re still in the process of establishing information... We’re trying to put together an operational report on the

status of banks affected.” The regulator and the private sector are working to bring banking services back up in the hardest-hit areas.

THE Philippine Deposit Insur ance C or p orat i on (PDIC) announced that it will continue to receive and process deposit insurance claims from depositors of the closed Rural Bank of Hagonoy (Davao del Sur), Inc. The account holders need to go to the PDIC Claims Counter, 4 th Floor, SSS Bldg., 6782 Ayala Avenue corner V.A. Rufino Street, Makati City. Claims may also be filed through mail. The state deposit insurer has already concluded the onsite claims settlement operations for Rural Bank of Hagonoy last October 14, 2013. PDIC sent notices of p ayment amount ing to P0.67 million involving 459 accounts with balances of P15,000 and below where the filing of claims is waived by PDIC.

Meanwhile, PDIC paid 156 claims during the onsite claims settlement operations involving 145 accounts for a total amount of P7.46 million deposits. As of October 14, 2013, PDIC has yet to receive deposit insurance claims for 470 accounts, or 76% out of 618 accounts that require the filing of claims. The total amount of deposits covered by these claims is P3.9 million. When f iling dep osit insurance claims, depositors are advised to personally present their duly accomplished Claim Form, original evidence of deposit, and two (2) original valid photo-bearing IDs with signature of the depositor. Depositors may also file their claims through mail and enclose the same set of document requirements. pdic/PAGE 11

Above the Law

T

THINK

hink a minute…Does a thief steal because he’s a A Minute thief? Or, is he a thief because By Jhan Tiafau Hurst he steals? Studies show that over 80% of criminals who have been in prison and then freed after serving their time are back in prison for the same crime in less than 1 year! So back to our question: Does a thief steal because he’s a thief? Or, is he a thief because he steals? The answer: he steals because he’s a thief. We do what we do because of what we are inside. Jesus said that you and I can still be a murderer even if we don’t murder anyone. If we hate somebody and wouldn’t mind if someone else killed that person, then we also are a murderer in our heart. Jesus said that if we lust and desire to have sex with someone who’s not our wife or husband, then we’ve already committed adultery because in our heart we are an adulterer. Jesus’ way of living is far above the law. It goes beyond just the minimum, small requirements of the law which simply try to keep society civil. But God did not create you and me just so we would not cheat or steal from our enemy. He designed us to love our enemy. Jesus knows that if we truly love and care about a person, then we don’t need a law to keep us from cheating or stealing from them! When you and I do something good to impress and look good in front of others, Jesus sees and judges our wrong heart and motives even for doing those good things. Jesus wants us to do them because we genuinely love Him and others, not for our own self-centered pride and good image in front of people. You’re probably thinking: “If Jesus’ commands are that high above the law, then is anyone that good and perfect?!” Of course not! No one is! That’s exactly why Jesus came: to finally change our heart and character inside. The law can only punish us for our crime, but it cannot change us on the inside. Jesus came to finally take the dishonest thief out of us, so to speak. So why not ask Jesus to forgive you for your wrong heart Hurst/PAGE 10

Be A Hero Like Andres Bonifacio

n November 30, Filipinos will mark the 150th birth anniversary of one of the Philippines’ most beloved heroes, Andres Bonifacio. As the leader or “Supremo” of the Katipunan, Bonifacio is credited as the father of the biggest revolution to rid our nation of the imperialist yoke. To celebrate this milestone, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) plans to come with a commemorative 10-Piso coin that will soon be available to the public. Timed to coincide with his birthday on November 30, which is also a national holiday, the release of the commemorative coin intends to serve as a constant reminder of Bonifacio’s heroism and ideals. On previous occasions, the BSP has come up with special editions of our currency to honor other personalities or to commemorate other important national milestones. In 1999, a 50-Piso bill was released with a special overprint to commemorate the 50 years of central banking in the Philippines. Not too long ago as well, separate commemorative bills were produced to mark 400th anniversary of the University of Santo Tomas, the centennial anniversary of the University of the Philippines and the 75th anniversary of the Ateneo Law School, among others. These commemorative coins and bills are circulation currency, meaning, they can be used for our daily needs to purchase goods and services. But many also keep a few of them as souvenirs. It may be of interest to our readers that in 2008, the Bangko Sentral has come up with a special Centennial Commemorative Note. The note sets the record for Philipine legal tender in terms of amount (P100,000) and dimension 22 cm by 33 cm). Since only 1,000 pieces were printed, one can be sure that this Centennial note is a prize trophy among numismatists. It must be noted that not all milestones of institutions can be featured in commemorative notes or coins. The BSP, through its Numismatic Committee, carefully studies which can be granted a coin design, overprint, or special denomination based on this criteria: 1) At least 50 years

of existence in pursuit of the organization’s mission and O ut vision; 2) National significance By Ignacio Bunye of the celebration; and 3) International Significance of the celebration. It is the requesting party’s responsibility to prove that their milestone satisfies all three requirements above. They shall also provide their suggested coin or overprint design and the desired number of banknotes to be printed or coins to be minted. If the Committee, which is currently co-chaired by BSP Deputy Governors Diwa C. Guinigundo (Monetary Stability Sector) and Vicente S. Aquino (Resource Management Sector), finds merit in the request, they will recommend its approval to the Monetary Board (MB), the highest policy-making body in the BSP. If approved by the MB, BSP Governor Amado M. Tetangco Jr. formally seeks approval from President Benigno S. Aquino III for the issuance of the special currency. Bonifacio’s 150th year birth anniversary coin will bear the hero’s image and the words “dangal” (dignity) and “kabayanihan”(patriotism). Hopefully, when people get hold of it, it will inspire them to unleash the hero within them as well, especially at this time in our country. Still recovering from the massive destruction caused by Super Typhoon Yolanda, the country needs all Filipinos to do their share in helping alleviate the suffering of our brothers and sisters in the Visayas. Now more than ever, we need to display the heroism and patriotism of Andres Bonifacio. Note: My book, Central Banking for Every Juan and Maria is now available in main branches of Fully Booked, Power Books, National Book Store, and University of the Philippines Press.

Truth, Justice and Charity

ow that we are into some disasters and calamities, it’s good to remind ourselves that God writes straight with crooked lines. We need to strengthen our faith, making deliberate acts of faith to avoid letting the pillars of our ultimate beliefs eroded by the many trials and difficulties we are and will be experiencing because of them. God is all good, all wise, all merciful. He does not want to play tricks on us. He is not a hunter who likes to harass us and to strike us in our most vulnerable moments. He is a good father who understands us well, loves us no end, provides us with everything we need, and solves our problems in their final terms. He even assumes the mess that we make due to our sinfulness, and converts them into our way of reconciliation. His will and ways are actually simple and straightforward. What makes them to appear crooked are our own natural limitations, personal weaknesses and our own sinfulness that tend to complicate what is actually simple. The gospel gives us the basis for all these claims and beliefs. We are told to see and assess things more by faith rather than just our common sense and the power of our sciences and natural knowledge. “You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time?” he said (Lk 12,56), somehow telling us that we should not just look at the externals and appearance of things, but rather into the internal and spiritual aspects, where the interplay of God’s providence and our correspondence takes place. This is the challenge we have to tackle. We need to study the will and ways of God that actually are revealed to us with enough if not abundant clarity in spite of the mysteries that they also contain. Are we doing something about this challenge? The faith broadens our mind and leads us to brace ourselves to the full range of reality that we live in, a reality that includes the natural and the supernatural, the material and the spiritual. It’s the faith that sheds the proper and ultimate light to everything in our life, including not only the good things that happen to us, our victories and successes, but also the bad and sad things that spring not so much from our natural limitations as from the infranatural or sub-human frailties that arise from our sinfulness.

HINTS

It’s the faith that gives meaning and salvation to the and Traces suffering that we unavoidably By Fr. Roy Cimagala will have in this life. In another part of the gospel, for example, we are told that whenever some calamities occur, one thing that we should remember as we go about tackling the consequences of such calamities is that we need to repent. Our life here on earth can be described in many ways, most of them beautiful and of the feel-good type. But one realistic way of describing it is that it is also a life meant to elicit in us sentiments of repentance and conversion. That’s because of our sinfulness. The pertinent gospel passage is the following: “Some people told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. He said to them in reply, ‘Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? “By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!” (Lk. 13,1-3) May we not get lost in the drama provoked by the calamities and disasters that visit us from time to time, a drama that inevitably sparks off strong natural feelings of fear! We have to see the whole picture painted by our faith. There we can see that God actually is conveying a beautiful message for us, a message we need to know and live. That’s the reason why we have to pray always. Prayer, for us, should not just be an on-and-off affair. It should be like our breathing, our very heartbeat. It’s what connects us vitally with God, and enables us to see things the way God sees them. We ought to remember that we actually cannot live without God. Thinking otherwise would lead us to some fantasy world that for sure cannot cope with all the fullness of the reality of our human life here on earth. With prayer, we somehow can detect that God actually writes straight, but his writing may look crooked because of our limitations and sinfulness.

The expansion was “driven by its real estate and b an k ing units, t he steady performance of its water business, and the sust aine d improvement in profitability of its international businesses,” the conglomerate said. Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) contributed nearly half of equity earnings, which grew by more than a quarter to P13.9 billion at end-September. “Overall, we are pleased that all our key business units are able to sustain their strong earnings growth trajectory,” AC president and chief operating officer Fernando Zobel de Ayala said. “The economy continues to support much of this momentum with both consumer and business confidence largely upbeat. This has, in turn, allowed our business units to continue to expand aggressively in their respective sectors and tap new customers particularly in underserved

markets,” he said. AC reiterated its c o m m i t m e nt t o i nv e s t in the countr y’s growth prospects by supporting infrastructure projects. “ This is par tic ularly c r it i c a l i n l i g ht of t h e massive destruction caused by the recent earthquakes in Cebu and Bohol as well as super typhoon Yolanda. The Ayala group has been engaged in relief and rehabilitation efforts at various levels across its business units,” Zobel said. The conglomerate has been one of the most active participants in the government’s Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Program. AC won the bid for the Daang Hari-South Luzon E x pre s s w ay C on n e c t or Road Project in December 2011. Ayala has businesses in real estate development, banking and f i nanc i a l s e r v i c e s , telecommunications, water distribution, automotive dealerships, electronics manufacturing services, business process outsourcing, among others.

Mining...

from page 1 and organize themselves into a cooperative. The Minahang Bayan program is provided for in the People’s Small-Scale Mining Act of 1991 (Republic Act No. 7076), identifying sites “suitable for small-scale mining, subject to review by the Secretary [of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources], immediately giving priority to areas already occupied and actively mined by small-scale miners.” These mining sites should not be under forest reservations and must not have been declared “tourist or marine reserves [or] parks and wildlife reservations, unless their status is withdrawn by a competent authority.” It is not known whether any of the six sites is within a mining tenement held by St. Augustine Gold and Copper Ltd., but the company earlier said it would work with smallscale miners so its project could proceed. Clyde Gillespie, country director of the US-based Toronto Stock Exchange - listed company, said St. Augustine is prepared to invest $10 million in making sure small-scale miners operating within its tenement will have a better life. The company has partnered with Nationwide Development Corp. on the 1,620-hectare mining reservation in Kingking, Pantukan as the two companies agreed to start operating in 2017. In dealing with the smallscale miners, Mr. Gillespie said the miners can work for the company, join skills training for other forms of livelihood, or mine a village mining site that the MGB would identify for them. Based on the assessment by St. Augustine, there are about 3,000 small scale miners in the area.

BPO...

from page 1 The Institute of Development and Econometric Analysis, a private group housed at the University of the Philippines -- Diliman campus, showed in a study that only 35% of companies it surveyed have disaster recovery plans. What was worse, the study showed, was that only 10% of these companies have business recovery and continuity process. The same study identified Davao City as among those facing moderate disasterrelated risk. Despite the recent entry here of big BPO companies su ch a s C onve rg y s and Teleperformance, the city still has vast spaces to accommodate other locators. Mr. Barriga noted that a new information technology park is being set up in the southern part of this metropolis. Based on the project plan, the new park could accommodate about 1,500 seats. But, Mr. Barriga said it may eventually run out of space as two more companies, which he did not identify, have indicated they plan to locate in it. T h e c it y w a s e ar l i e r identified by the Business Process Association of the

Philippines as among the best locations for BPO operation. What made Davao ideal, BPAP said last year, was its low cost in doing business, with better conditions for employees due to low standard of living and availability of numerous outdoor recreation facilities.

Exports...

from page 1 had a negative growth of 5.28; and as said a 10.13 percent growth for September. Thus, DTI has been taking actions in strengthening the local export industry to augment the increasing unemployment rate in the country. One of these programs is the information sessions dubbed as Doing Business in Free Trade Areas (DBFTA) to educate stakeholders regarding the benefits of FTA. “We want to maximize the benefits of FTAs to Philippine exporters,” said Perlada. T h e d e p a r t m e nt h a s also funded P700 million to shared service facility (SSF) project that aims to alleviate the performance of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in order for them to participate in export activities. (PNA)

Impact...

from page 2 Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) is still gathering reports from the ground. He stressed that the last quarter of the year “will be affected to some degree” but noted that this will generally be for the three affected regions. “What will be material in the reckoning of GDP is the impact on economic activity,” he said. The central bank official, however, pointed out that the negative impact will be offset by the large-scale demand for reconstruction both from the public and the private sectors. Relatively, Guinigundo does not see a big uptick on inflation as a result of Typhoon Yolanda. He said the uptick would generally be contained in the affected areas and this will be “manageable.” He said impact on inflation of price increases from the three regions will be about 15.8 percent vis-à-vis the national level of consumer basket. He, on the other hand, said that since rate of price increases in the first 10 months is below the government’s three to five percent target at 2.8 percent any uptick in the inflation rate will not exceed the target but instead will be “close to the lower end of the target. Similarly, debt watcher Moody’s Investors Service said the super typhoon will definitely have an impact on the affected areas but will not impact on the country’s longterm growth. “Nor do we expect it to undermine ongoing improvements in the sovereign’s credit quality, such as highertrend growth and fiscal and debt consolidation,” it said. Moody’s expects a seven p e rc e nt g row t h for t h e Philippines this year. “The fiscal effect of relief and reconstruction efforts is likely to be less muted, but the government has ample

fiscal space to accommodate additional spending,” it added. Also, HSBC, in research note penned by economist Trinh Nguyen, said impact of the typhoon in the country’s over-all expansion will be limited since Easter Visayas, for one, accounts to only about two percent of GDP. It, on the other hand, sees a “drastic” impact ``in inflation in the near term. “We expect inflation to accelerate going into 2014 but it should remain manageable and stay within the central bank’s three-five percent target,” it added. (PNA)

Permits...

from page 2 t ar ge t s t h e i s s u an c e t o applicants of the final print of the business permit after few hours of processing.p>The License Office headed by Ms. Noeme Evelyn Y. Cacayorin, who also heads the manning and augmentation for the processing of business permits, assured the safety and fast processing of business permits that take of January 1 to January 20, 2014. (PNA)

Grain...

from page 3 San Miguel Mills and San Miguel Foods, Inc. import a combined one million tons of grains -- such as wheat and soybean -- every year. To further maximize the terminal, Mr. Policarpio said the facility could also be used by other firms. “We really intend it to be used by other companies as well,” he said. San Miguel Foods President Maria Rita B. Palabyab, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the same event, said that while freight cost is “less than 5%” of Pure Foods’ total cost and expenses, “it is still significant.” Pure Foods booked a net income of P4.32 billion last year, slightly up by 2.61% from P4.21 billion in 2011. Revenues rose 6.92% to P95.79 billion from P89.59 billion, while cost of sales increased 6.17% to P77.95 billion from P73.42 billion. In the nine months to S e p t e m b e r, n e t i n c o m e

attributable to equity holders of the parent company fell 6% to P2.75 billion from P2.92 billion, according to briefing materials from San Miguel. This, despite net sales improving 3% to P71.41 billion from P69.35 billion in the same comparative periods.

PDIC...

from page 4 Depositors who are below 18 years old should submit either a photocopy of their Birth Certificate issued by the National Statistics Office (NSO) or a duly certified copy issued by the Local Civil Registrar as an additional requirement. Claimants who are not the signatories in the bank records are required to submit an original copy of a notarized Special Power of Attorney (SPA). In the case of a minor depositor, the SPA must be executed by the parent. The procedures and requirements for filing deposit insurance claims are posted in the PDIC website,www.pdic. gov.ph. The Claim Form and format of the Special Power of Attorney may also be downloaded from the PDIC website.
