Gov't officials to be automatically promoted upon retirement - Revilla

Sen. Ramon Bong Revilla, Jr. on Tuesday said that all government officials and employees who are eligible for compulsory retirement shall be granted an automatic promotion equivalent to One Grade Level Higher than his/her position at the time of retirement.

He filed Senate Bill No. 1019, "An Act Providing Automatic Promotion of Government Officials and Employees upon Retirement from Government Service," where the adjusted Salary Grade Level of the retiree shall be used as the basis for the computation of their retirement benefits.

The veteran lawmaker believes that this is essential to help return the service of government employees who dedicated their most productive years in public service. Since most them will reach their retirement age while in service, Bong Revilla believes that it is important to ensure that they will maximize their benefits upon leaving the service.

"Kung ang mga pulis ay binibigyan ng one rank higher kapag nagretiro, bakit hindi natin gawin sa lahat ng government employee na bigyan din kaparehong promotion at benefits," Revilla said.
