Early Release of Mid-Year Bonus is Real
The Mid-Year Bonus granted to each government employee is equal to one (1) month basic pay as of May 15, 2022.
There were several posts in social media that some Schools’ Division Offices(SDOs) have already released the mid-year bonus of their personnel.
Any agency, including the Department of Education(DepEd), has no authority over existing laws that the mid-year bonus shall be released not earlier than May 15.
But with the impending passage of Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, the earlier release of bonuses may be possible under the expanded power of the executive over the fiscal matters.
Other schools are expecting it to be credited to their ATM accounts starting tomorrow, Friday, May 13.
