Things to Know About Approved Government Incentives and Rice Allowance
President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has issued administrative orders providing executive department personnel a service recognition incentive (SRI) as well as a one-time rice allowance to all government employees for this year.
He recently allowed a one-time service recognition bonus of no more than P20,000 for executive department staff. Civilian personnel in national government agencies (NGAs), including those in state universities and colleges (SUCs), government-owned or controlled corporations (GOCCs), regular, contractual, or casual employees, members of the military and police, as well as fire and jail personnel under the Department of the Interior and Local Government, are eligible for the incentive (DILG).
Employees of both houses of Congress, the Judiciary, the Office of the Ombudsman, and Constitutional offices may also be granted a one-time SRI at a standardized amount not exceeding P20,000 per the President’s decree.
Separately, President Marcos authorized a one-time rice support handout for government employees.
Civilian people in NGAs, SUCs, GOCCs, government financial institutions (GFIs), government instrumentalities with corporate powers, and government corporate organizations occupying regular, contractual, or casual posts are eligible for the rice subsidy.
The order also enables the release of aid to individuals and groups of people whose services are engaged through job orders (JO), contracts of service (COS), or other similarly situated working arrangements defined by a Commission on Audit circular order.
The only question I have in mind is: when will be the release of these incentives and rice allowance to all DepEd personnel? I am also waiting just like you.
