Aside from the holiday season itself, people are excited to welcome the last months of the year for the much awaited 13th month pay. And government employees will start to get their hand on the precious cold cash starting this week.
As reported by the ABS-CBNnews.com, “The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) announced that government employees will get the remaining half of their 13th month pay and cash gift starting this week.”
Government personnel are said to be entitled to year-end bonus, which is equivalent to a month’s pay, plus a cash gift of Php 5, 000. This is under the Budget Circular 2010-1, first issued on August 28, 2010.
In addition to the reports, they were said to have already received half of their 13th month pay and cash gift last May.
