“Of course, the One-Stop-Shop services will be available for everyone as well. We have partnered with several agencies that will be rendering services to our clients for free. The RTWPB will also be accommodating queries on Kasambahay,” said the Regional Director.

Among the agencies rendering services in Lapu-lapu City would include the following, namely: SSS, PAG-IBIG, Philheatlh, NBI, PSA, BIR, TESDA, POEA, OWWA, NRCO, and PRC.
