State workers to get 13th month pay on time


Government employees to get 13th month pay on time. Yes, government employees and officers are set to feel the holiday season early. It is because state employees will get the remaining half of their 13th month pay and cash gift before the coming Christmas as announced by Secretary Florencio Abad.

The funds for the bonuses and cash gifts for national government agencies are sourced from the 2014 National Budget. Government-owned or controlled corporations and government financial institutions will tap into their corporate funds for the bonuses, while local government units will source it from local government funds.

Government employees and officers first received half of their 13th month pay and cash gift last May. This is because the first half of the bonus and cash gift can only be given not earlier than May 1 and the remaining half not earlier than November 15.

Last year, President Benigno S. Aquino III ordered an early release of the year-end bonus and cash gift to help government employees affected by Typhoon Yolanda. Prior to this, they also received their year-end bonuses early in the aftermath of Ondoy.
