The Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) of Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel amounting to P1.8 billion will be released on January 6, 2015 through the individual ATM payroll account of the 150,000-strong organization.
“Some personnel who are not yet enrolled in the ATM payroll system will receive their PBB in the form of Continuous Form Checks (CFC) drawn from the PNP account with the Land Bank of the Philippines,” PNP Comptroller Rolando Puruganan said on Tuesday
Puruganan acknowledged the “delay” in the release of the individual PBB, citing bank holidays during the closing months of the year and “the tedious process of evaluation and review to ensure that the right amount goes to the right person as determined by the Individual Performance Rating (IPER) of every PNP member.”
He said the P1.8 billion for the bonus was released in November through the PNP Finance Service and credited to the individual ATM payroll account of active PNP uniformed and non-uniformed personnel.
The year-end bonus represents 50 percent of the 13th month pay and other cash benefits mandated by law for all government workers.
Meanwhile, Puruganan said the PNP has completed the release of P750 million as performance enhancement incentive (PEI) for its 150,000 personnel.
The personnel, he added, each received P5,000 before Christmas.
