Good news to all government employed Teachers!
Effective this month, more than 1.4 million employees of the Philippine government — including public school teachers, nurses, doctors, and other civil service workers — are set to receive higher salaries with the approval of the new Salary Standardization Law (SSL).
The “Salary Standardization Law of 2019”(SSL-5), which will roll out four (4) tranches of annual salary increases for government workers beginning 2020 and lasting until 2023.
As mentioned, the first tranche of the newly-approved SSL-5 will be retroactive and will take effect beginning January 1, 2020. Sadly, it was not appeared on the said month. Good news is, salary for this month with First Tranche increase is now available.
Payroll for this month’s salary was already submitted. Differential for the month of January 2020 is now on process and maybe downloaded for the next month payroll.
Under SSL 5, a government teacher with Salary Grade 11, Step 1 (SG 11-1) will receive a monthly salary of P22,316.00 starting this month— an increase from the current monthly salary of P20,754.00.
