The performance-based bonus (PBB) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 for eligible Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel has been released starting on Wednesday, October 25, PNP announced.

According to the PNP, a total of 3,733,668,419.00 pesos from Department of Budget and Management's (DBM) Special Allotment Release Order (SARO) will be distributed to 220,116 PNP personnel.

Meanwhile, PNP Chief Benjamin Acorda Jr. thanked the national government for "acknowledging the hard work and dedication of the police force."

“We can only repay this recognition through improved performance and a deeper commitment to service,” Acorda said, addressing the national government.


PBGen Rommel Francisco Marbil, director for comptrollership, said that the funds have been processed by the Directorate for Comptrollership and PNP Finance Service and have been credited to the individual ATM payroll accounts of PNP personnel.

According to Marbil, the PBB amounts to 52% of each individual’s monthly basic salary as of December 31, 2021, and is subject to taxation in accordance with the TRAIN Law.

Uniformed personnel with the rank of Police Major (PMAJ) to Police General (PGEN) and non-uniformed personnel with a salary grade of 20 (step increment 5) and above are the ones who are affected by the tax deductions.

Additionally, IATF AO 25 Memorandum Circular No. 2021-1 Guidelines on the Grant of the PBB for FY 2021 issued June 3, 2021 stated that the release of the PBB is not allowed for personnel. These consist of:

  • Those with final and executory judgments for administrative and/or criminal cases in FY 2021, except for reprimands;
  • Those who did not achieve a “very satisfactory” rating in their Individual Performance Evaluation Report (IPER);
  • Those who did not submit the 2020 Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN) as required by CSC Memorandum Circular No. 3, s. 2015, or those responsible for SALN non-compliance;
  • Those on vacation or sick leave for the entire year, with or without pay; and
  • Those who failed to settle all cash advances received in FY 2021 within the required timeframe specified in COA Circular 2009-002 dated May 18, 2009.
