A Guide to DWSD Social Amelioration Package


Department of Social Welfare and Development(DSWD) has launched its social amelioration package amid the coronavirus pandemic. The program is made to identify and validate families that need financial aid assistance. The cash aid ranges between P5000 to P8000, depending on the minimum wage of a region. Under the Republic Act 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, the head of a family needs to fill in and submit a social amelioration card (SAC). As shared by DSWD, here’s the step-by-step guide to its social amelioration package.

How to avail DSWD’s Social Amelioration Package?

Sample SAC Form (screenshot from DSWD)

Step 1: Local Government Units (LGUs) will distribute SAC forms to houses 

  • SAC forms are expected to be delivered right in front of your doorstep by an LGU, such as a barangay official. 

Step 2: The head of the family will fill out the SAC Form

  • make sure to provide complete and accurate information when filling out the SAC form. 
  • personal information should be provided (average income, number of individuals in a household, valid ID, etc.)
  • there are two SAC Forms to fill out; one to be given back to LGU (and be returned to you after DSWD validates the information) and the other to be kept by you as a reference copy.
  • SAC forms are not for sale. If someone offers you to pay for it, report it to DSWD (via 8-951-2803).

Step 3: Wait for the assistance package provided by different government sectors

  • the package assistance, whether it’s in cash or goods, will be sent to you by a local government unit.
  • always keep your SAC form (reference copy) ready as other government sectors will use it for validation.
  • cooperation and patience are requested from the families as the distribution of the package assistance prioritizes those who are badly affected by the crisis.

  1. I have 3families households 1from bakit po ganun ako po may sakit sa puso at ang kapatid ko ay isang magsasaka at aking ina ay senior citizen 85years old isa lang ang binigay na from samin

  2. Hello po,ang buwan ng kita sa SAC form po ba ay buwan ng kita noong wala pang covid or ngayon na wala nang trabaho ang ibang kasapi ng pamilya ? Sabi kasi ng barangay official na nagdistribute ng SAC form na ang buwan ng kita ay kailangan hindi daw 1000 pesos dapat mas malaking halaga dahil hindi daw paniniwalaan kung maliit lang na halaga ang ilalagay 🙂 Tama po ba yon ? Sabi kasi dapat pawang katotohanan ang ilagay sa form 🙂 Yung kinakain namin galing lang po yon sa relief goods at kunting bunga ng aming pananim 🙂 .Kung buwan ng kita sa panahon ngayon na may covid hindi nga po aabot ng 1000 pesos yong buwan ng kita namin eh 🙂 .Ang sabi kasi malalaman daw yong buwan ng kita sa dami ng miyembro lang ng pamilya.:-) kaya hindi daw paniniwalaan ang 1000 pesos 🙂 eh relief goods nga lang ,bunga ng saging ,kamote at tubig lang ang ulam :-)Tama po ba yun ? Sana po may sagot ang tanong ko .SALAMAT po
