Vice Consul Andre Peter C. Estanislao, on behalf of Consul General Henry S. Bensurto, Jr., received the application of Ms. Irene Vicente Atayde, who was born on 17 December 1911 in San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija, for the availment of awards and incentives for overseas Filipino centenarians under R.A. 10868 (An Act Honoring and Granting Additional Benefits and Privileges to Filipino Centenarians).

Ms. Atayde, who celebrated her 106th birthday on 17 December 2017 migrated to the United States in 1979 and became a naturalized US citizen on 13 August 1997. In 2016, she applied for reacquisition of her Filipino citizenship during the Consulate General’s consular outreach in Seattle, Washington, as one of the oldest natural-born Filipinos who re-acquired her Philippine citizenship through R.A. 9225 (Citizenship Retention and Re-Acquisition Act of 2003) at the age of 104. She remains vibrant and healthy up to now.

Her application for awards and incentives for overseas Filipino centenarians will be forwarded to the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) in the Philippines.  END
