Unemployment or Involuntary Separation

The unemployment benefit is paid when permanent government employees who have paid the required 12 months integrated contributions under RA 8291 are  involuntarily separated from the service as a result of the abolition of their office or position usually resulting from reorganization. The benefit is in the form of monthly cash payments equivalent to 50% of the average monthly compensation (AMC). The duration of the benefit depends on the length of service and ranges from two months to a maximum of six months.

The unemployment benefit shall be paid in accordance with the following schedule:

  1. If the contributions have been made for a period of one year but less than three years, the benefit duration is for two months;
  2. If the contributions have been made for a period of three or more years but less than six years, the benefit duration is for three months;
  3. If the contributions have been made for a period of six years or more but less than nine years, the benefit duration is for four months;
  4. If the contributions have been made for a period of nine years or more but less than 11 years, the benefit duration is for five months; and
