The law puts a cap on borrowings of government employees to ensure that their take home pay every month will not be less than P5,000, a press release from the Government Service Insurance System said.
The agency released the statement after some state workers called for an explanation on why they cannot qualify for emergency loans in the wake of typhoon Pablo.
GSIS chairperson, Daniel Lacson Jr. told members of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers in a dialog that the General Appropriations Act of 2012 stipulates that government employee must, after all the deductions for their dues to various funds and loans, bring home at least P5,000 per month.
