This incentive, acknowledging her longevity, marks her as the first centenarian to receive such an award from the City Government of Malaybalay.

City Mayor Jay Warren R. Pabillaran, alongside personnel from the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) and the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), presented the incentive to Ms. Encabo at her residence in Purok 3, Brgy. Managok on January 10, 2024.
