SC approves 1,524,000/year for first-level judges

NEWS BY ABS-CBN: The Supreme Court (SC) has approved the implementation of salary increase for first level court judges nationwide.

Chief Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro approved the recommendation of Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez to increase the salary of judges in lower courts, pursuant to an en banc resolution passed in June.

From salary grade 26 and 27, judges of municipal trial courts, municipal circuit trial courts, Shari’a circuit courts, and municipal trial court in cities will now be under salary grade 28.

This would mean that judges receiving P102,000 to P114,000 shall be receiving around P127,000, effective July 1, 2018.
