PIA Press Release

Villar seeks retirement benefits for barangay officials, stipend for tanods

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Vigan City (18 November) -- Senator Manny Villar is pushing for the establishment of a retirement fund for the benefit of elected Barangay Chairmen and members of the barangay council in recognition to their significant contribution in the delivery of basic services in the grass roots.

The senator also proposed for the granting of P1, 000 allowances for barangay tanods.

"The barangay officials are the ones our people call for immediate help 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The measly honoraria they receive are not enough. It is only proper to accord them additional benefits for their invaluable service to the community," Villar said.

This developed as Senator Villar is set to file two separate bills in the senate to address these supposed benefits for the barangay officials.

Senate Bill 1323 seeks to entitle for life barangay officials to a monthly retirement pension equivalent to an amount not lower than the monthly honorarium which he received during his/ her incumbency. To qualify, a barangay official must have served three consecutive terms.

Senate Bill No. 2578 seeks to grant a P1,000 monthly allowance for all barangay tanods. The allowance proposed under the bill is separate from any other form of remuneration that the tanods might receive from their respective cities/ municipalities.

For local governments which are unable to provide the necessary amount to cover the said allowance due to insufficient revenues, the sanggunian of the LGU concerned shall provide for a reasonable amount to cover the same. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
