Good news to all government employees!

Effective January 1, 2020, more than 1.4 million employees of the Philippine government — including public school teachers, nurses, doctors, and other civil service workers — are set to receive higher salaries with the approval of the new Salary Standardization Law (SSL). Check here how much your salary will increase this year and in the next three years!



On January 8, 2020, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte signed into law “Salary Standardization Law of 2019”, which will roll out four (4) tranches of annual salary increases beginning 2020 and lasting until 2023 benefiting all government workers.

SSL 5 Table with new Salary Grades

The first tranche of the newly-approved SSL V is retroactive and took effect beginning January 1, 2020. This means all eligible government employees already received this benefit as if the law was approved at the start of the year.

As seen in the SSL V table below, a government employee with Salary Grade 1, Step 1 (SG 1-1) will receive monthly salary of P11,551.00 starting January 2020 — a P483.00 increase from the current monthly salary of P11,068.00.

SG 10-1 employees will now receive monthly salary of P20,219.00, while SG 20-1 employees will receive P52,703.00 monthly salary.

The highest ranked SG 33-2 employees will see their salary growing to P407,734.00 per month.
