Public school teachers will NOT receive Anniversary Bonus of P3,000 this December

The Department of Education (DepEd) made it clear that its employees will not get a "anniversary bonus" this year because that benefit is only given every five years or during a "milestone year."

Public school teachers will NOT receive Anniversary Bonus of P3,000 this December

The Department of Education (DepEd) anniversary bonus is only given every 5 years, so public school teachers won't get it this year. 2018 was the last time it was given.


“It is given only in milestone years – every 5 years. So the next anniversary bonus won't come until 2023," Annalyn Sevilla, DepEd's undersecretary for finance, budget, and performance monitoring, explained.


"The year-end bonus, which is equal to one month's salary, and the P5,000 cash gift will be paid on or after November 15. "According to DBM Circular 2017-4 and EO 201, s. 2016, PEI in the amount of P5,000 must be given no earlier than December 15 of each year," Sevilla said.


All full-time, regular, part-time, permanent, temporary, or casual DepEd employees, as well as contractual employees whose jobs are similar to those of regular employees and whose salaries/wages are paid for out of the budget for Personnel Services, were eligible for the bonus. They also had to have worked for DepEd for at least one year by the date of the milestone year.



In 2018, DepEd said that the AB should have been given to all eligible employees before the end of the year. The 15th anniversary of the government agency is a milestone year, and every fifth year after that is also a milestone year. “As such, any employee may receive anniversary bonus only once every five years, regardless of transfers from one agency to another,” DepEd explained.
