Disabled People Are More RESPECTED Here

Recommended Posts

Take the LRT in Manila and disabled people get to the front of the line, without hassle. 

Take the bus between cities and there is a discount but I need to get a disabled person's ID. I have heard that the town hall (my local one is Olongapo) is the place to get one but if anyone could confirm that might save me a trip. 

Also does anyone know where the post office in Olongapo is?

Moderator's Note:

People who ask to have the "moderator's approval" turned off raise a red flag for moderators.  If you are a genuine person then all your posts will be permitted.  I had no reason to doubt you until this post.

I shall refer this post .Jollygoodfellow who makes that decision.  Welcome to the forum and thank you for the genuine posts so far :58:

I'm guessing you're one of those shoot trespassers first, ask questions later type of guys. Not hating if that works out well for you. Plenty of competing forums online though, doesn't hurt to be welcoming to new people.

Lets hope this thread will get some on topic replies. ;) :thumbsup:

In my experience most forums have a 'probationary period' for new members which have a few restrictions such as not permitting PM's until a certain number of posts have been made and the vetting of content posted by new members. I think you will find that this forum has a very reasonable attitude to moderation.

Welcome to the forum by the way.

I've been a member since 2013 but only made 4 posts (so it seems) that year. In reality, I think I made more but perhaps some were lost due to data issues. Also, I wish I had bought more flipping bitcoin back then!!!

Then :welcome-group: MrWorldwide.  I am the one who approved your first few posts and got you into the "no longer moderated" club. 

.Jollygoodfellow is the one who decides if you stay in that group.  He can be a grumpy old bear as so many of new members have tried those "competing forums" and got booted off  them so decided to try their luck here.  :hystery:  :hystery:

Have fun, take a few moments to aquaint yourself with the rules, and you will surely enjoy our little group

While it is common in the Philippines to be able to 'get things done', like getting the ID you are asking about, it does not mean it was acquired legally. While it is true some foreigners have the ID, it is reserved for Philippine Citizens only. Companies can give discounts anytime they want but the ID is subsidised by the government.

I have heard that for the senior id but is it true for disabled as well?

There is a post office in Olongapo near city hall.   There is also one in the freeport.

It has been a while since I read the law here so I will go with 99.99% yes. Example, do visitors to the States get Social Security Retirement (senior) or SSDI (disability) benefits or discounts? Might get discounts from individual businesses but not from the government. I do remember looking to get a disability card when I was living in Hong Kong but same thing, citizen only.
