MANILA - Over 1.5 million government employees will receive their mid-year bonus starting Tuesday, May 15, the Department of Budget and Management said on Wednesday.

The bonus is equivalent to an employee's one-month salary, Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno said.

Government workers qualify for the mid-year bonus if they have served at least 4 months from July 1, 2017 to May 15, 2018, are still employed as of May 15 and have obtained a satisfactory performance rating in the applicable performance appraisal period.

Diokno said the government allotted P36.2 million for the mid-year bonus.
