Acting Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado says that the implementation of the Salary Standardization Law (SSL) 5 would be effective January.
President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to sign this year’s budget before Jan. 6.
SSL 5 (for civilian government employees) is also awaiting Mr. Duterte’s signature.
The government had more than 1.2 million civilian workers as of mid-2019, according to Department of Budget and Management (DBM) data.
The annual increase in salaries of soldiers and other uniformed personnel is covered by congressional Joint Resolution No. 1 issued in 2018.
Once SSL 5 is in place, employees in the lowest salary grade will see their monthly salaries grow from P11,068 last year to P11,551 this year and to P13,000 in 2023, according to Angara.
In the case of entry-level teachers with Salary Grade (SG) 11, their monthly pay will rise from P20,754 to P22,316 in 2020 and to P27,000 in 2023.
According to Angara, the largest yearly wage increments—double-digit percentages of up to 30 percent—would be enjoyed by those belonging to SG 11 to 16 or “professionals,” who account for the big chunk of the bureaucracy.
The pay of workers in the “subprofessional” levels of SG 1 to 10 would be hiked by between 17.5 percent and 20.5 percent on average from 2020 to 2023.
