Senate Pres. Migz Zubiri Speaks on Increase on Senate Employees Inflationary Aid

ZUBIRI, MIGZ – The Senate President announced the raising of the Senate Inflationary Aid from P12,200 to P50,000 and the medical assistance.

Currently, the Filipinos are dealing with high prices of some goods, basic commodities, and services in the Philippines. A lot of parents and those who manage the household’s finances express that the usual monthly budget does not anymore fit the family’s needs because of the high cost of living now.

The inflation or the rate of increase in the prices of goods and services in the country has steadily increased for several months now. In November 2022, the inflation rate in the Philippines has reached 8.0% from the 7.7% inflation rate in the month prior to it.

The inflation rate in the Philippines increased to 8.1% in December 2022. Amid the high inflation rate in the country now, Senator Pres. Migz Zubiri announced a raise on the one-time Inflationary Aid for the employees of the Senate.

“Tumaas ang inflation. Dapat itaas din natin ang assistance,” Zubiri said.

Based on the report, the Senate employees can expect their one-time Inflationary Aid this August. All 3,000 employees of the legislative body will receive the assistance which the Senate President said will come from the savings of the upper chamber.
