Following the release of Department Order No. 10, s. 2020 on the Guidelines on the Grant of Cash Allowance to Teachers, the Department of Education (DepEd) released Memorandum OUF-2020-0266 on the Pro-rated Computation of the Cash Allowance to Eligible Teachers, dated June 11, 2020.
Pro-Rated Computation of the Cash Allowance to Eligible Teachers
This refers to the Department Order (DO) No. 10, s. 2020 dated June 8, 2020, entitled “Guidelines on the Grant of Cash Allowance to Teachers“
Whereas, Section 1, item 4 of the same Order states:
” The Execom-in-Charge of Finance shall release supplemental guidelines on the computation of pro-rated amount of Cash Allowance for eligible teachers.”
This Office, therefore, issues the following criteria for the pro-rated payment of the Cash Allowance to teachers who are not entitled to such allowances as of the start of classes in the current School Year (SY) but started teaching (or who returned to teaching) duty after the opening of classes in the same SY:
|Date Started Teaching from the Date of Opening of Classes (Calendar Days)||Percentage of Cash Allowance to Teachers|
|a. Within the first 30 days||100%|
|b. After the first 30 day’s but not more than 90 days||80%|
|c. After 90 day’s but not more than 150 day’s||50%|
|d. After 150 days until the end of the School|
|Date Started Teaching from the Date of Opening of Classes1 (Calendar Days)||Percentage of Cash Allowance to Teachers|
|August 24 to September 23, 2020||100% or P3,500.00|
|September 24 to November 23, 2020||80% or P2,800.00|
|November 24 to January 23, 2021||50% or P1,750.00|
|January 24 to April 30, 2021||20% or P700.00|
Qualifications and requirements for the grant of Cash Allowance established in the DO No. 10, s. 2020 shall be complied with.
The pro-rated amount will be available in succeeding SYs, unless revised by the Office of the Undersecretary for Finance. The variables will depend on the issuance of DO on school opening for a respective SY, and the approved Cash Allowance budget per the General Appropriations Act.
