Not true. Yes, the original law was amended several times, lastly in 2010, but all versions of the law, including the current one, exclude non Filipino citizens from the definition of beneficiaries: SEC. 2. Definition of terms. – For purposes of this Act, these terms are defined as follows: “(a) Senior citizen or elderly refers to any resident citizen of the Philippines at least sixty (60) years old; As a legal foreigner (no Philippines passport/citizen) you can be a resident but never a citizen. Moreover, it is wise not to try to circumvent this since the law explicitely states: “(c) Any person who abuses the privileges granted herein shall be punished with imprisonment of not less than six (6) months and a fine of not less than Fifty thousand pesos (Php50,000.00) but not more than One hundred thousand pesos (Php100,000.00). “If the offender is an alien or a foreigner, he/she shall be deported immediately after service of sentence. After the latest version of the law came into effect the only change that was made (through a circular of the BIR in 2015) was to instruct merchants and government employees to accept not only the official 60+ card but also other id cards.
