In light of the lockdown of Luzon and provinces in other regions, the UP System administration, through Memorandum No. OVPAA 2020-40 dated March 20, 2020, instructed the constituent universities (CUs) to process the early release of salaries due to lecturers and to teaching assistants (TAs) and fellows (TFs) up to April 15, 2020.
Lecturers who are paid at the end of the semester will receive half of the amount, even without the required certifications, which can be submitted after April 15, 2020.
TAs and TFs, whose salaries are half paid for by the UP System and half by the CU, will receive their salaries even if the UP System contribution has not yet been downloaded to the CU, in which case the CU will be reimbursed after April 15, 2020.
