MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Friday said government is considering the possibility of granting P20,000 worth of incentive for qualified government employees in the executive branch.

Back in December 2022, government had granted a service recognition incentive to qualified employees.


“Lahat ng mga Pilipino ngayon, naghihirap. So, kung ano ‘yung maitulong natin, gagawin natin,” Marcos said in an ambush interview in Taguig city.


(All Filipinos are suffering right now. So, in whatever way we can help, we will do it.)

“So, we’ll see if we can — if it is actually viable, if it is financially feasible to give,” he told reporters.

The President said government will have to wait until the end of the fiscal year to see what it can afford to give to its workers.

Department of Budget and Management recently released P69.4 billion for the year-end bonuses and cash gifts of government employees.
