MANILA, Philippines — The Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) reiterates its reminder to uniformed personnel who have existing benefit claims to report to the agency any delays in their applications.
ARTA Undersecretary Carlos Quita said they have provided an email account that is exclusive only to the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP)
All other individuals with problems in their benefit claims and other matters may forward their concerns through ARTA.gov.ph.
In addition, the agency signed a joint circular creating a task force that will manage the streamlining of the processes to assist military and police personnel in their benefit claims.
Quita said the very purpose of this is to improve existing systems and integrate them into one streamlined system that can be managed both at the local and national level. It will also allow claimants to access the system online.
The joint circular was signed by representatives from ARTA, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), National Police Commission (NPC), Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), AFP, PNP, Philippine Coast Guard, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP).
