PIA Press Release
2009/10/02

PGMA OKs release of 13th month pay

Manila (2 October) -- Government workers affected by tropical storm Ondoy can avail themselves of the last half of their 13th month pay starting Thursday (Oct. 1). The first half of the year-end bonus was released in May.

Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, Jr. said that employees will only need to inform their respective offices to get their check in advance.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Vice President Noli De Castro recommended the early release of the 13th month pay for government workers during the last Cabinet meeting at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City.

De Castro urged private firms to likewise advance the year-end bonus of their employees.

The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) will also grant an emergency loan of P20,000 for each qualified member.

Likewise, the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-IBIG Fund) has put up windows in all its branches to process calamity loans for members in calamity-hit areas.

Pag-IBIG said loan processing will take one to three days, which will then be credited to their Land Bank accounts. Pag-IBIG will not ask their members for other requirements except the loan application. (PIA) [top]
