Once approved, reports said state workers may receive the cash gift before the Christmas break.

Earlier, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Sonny Coloma Jr. said the Aquino administration has allotted sufficient funds for the Christmas bonus of all government employees.

Coloma said over the weekend that the much-anticipated extra income by the civil servants will be released at a most proper time to provide additional support to their needs this Christmas.

“Sa pagkaalam ko po ay mayroon namang nakalaan na pondo para diyan, hindi naman po ipagkakait iyan… tiyak na sa takdang panahon ay ipagkakaloob sa kanila ang mga biyayang nararapat lamang na matanggap nila lalong-lalo na sa kapaskuhan,” Coloma said.

When asked when the bonus will be released, Coloma said the probability is within the second week of December.
