CamSur solon’s bill to grant P100,000 retirement pay to village execs, workers
Camarines Sur 1st District representative and former Budget secretary Rolando Andaya, Jr. is proposing that barangay officials receive P100,000 as additional incentive upon their retirement from government service.
Andaya filed House Bill 5721 that seeks to give “due recognition” to barangay officials and workers.
“Their job requires them to be on call at all times in order to maintain public order, amicably settle contending claims of community members and steer the economic direction of the barangay,” Andaya said in a Daily Tribune article.
Andaya’s bill seeks to grant retiring barangay officials a lump sum retirement pay equivalent to one-year honorarium or up to P100,000 to be taken from the barangay retirement fund.
The bill covers barangay officials, including barangay tanods, members of the Lupon ng Tagapamayapa, barangay health workers, barangay nutrition scholars and barangay day care workers.
At present, Andaya said the punong barangay or chairman receives P1,000 a month as allowance, P600 per month for the Sangguniang Barangay members, barangay treasurer and barangay secretary while barangay tanods and members of the lupong tagapamayapa only receive honoraria, allowances and other emoluments.
The proposed law requires a retiree to be at least 60-years-old and at least has nine years in service at the time of the retirement to receive the P100,000 incentive.
