11. How many times can a verified respondent join/win in the raffle?
A verified respondent has the chance to join the raffle seven times maximum.
Each verified respondent gets one raffle ticket for every survey completed. For example, if a respondent completes the three, required general surveys then he/she receives three raffle tickets. This means he has three entries to the raffle. If that same respondent is also a businessman, and also has relatives who are overseas Filipino workers, and he/she is also a delivery rider, and he/she is also below 30 years of age, then that respondent can also respond to the Business Survey, the OFW Families Survey, the Delivery Rider Survey, and the Youth Survey. He/she then receives another four raffle tickets for these four subject-specific surveys that apply to him/her. In total then, this specimen respondent receives seven raffle tickets.

This email will require a return receipt to be sent out by the winner in order to secure confirmation of the receipt of the notification email.
13. Where and how are prizes to be claimed?
Prizes can be claimed anytime after May 25, 2021. Winners inform SP.A of the name and contact number of their chosen delivery rider, and his/her estimated arrival time, and SP.A releases their prize to that authorized delivery rider.
