Sweldong Pinoy in 2014

It has been a great year for Sweldong Pinoy. There were major and minor updates to the apps and we released a new app.

Computation Updates

The year started with increases in the deductions for PhilHealth and SSS contributions based from PhilHealth Circular 27 s.2013 and SSS Circular 2013-010. Sweldong Pinoy apps were updated on January 4 to compute the new deductions based on these new tables.

Android Tablet App

After a bit of delay, the tablet-optimized version of the Sweldong Pinoy Android app has been released.

Sweldong Pinoy for Government Employees

Sweldong Pinoy was updated for Government employees. Instead of SSS deductions, what the government employees have is GSIS (Government Service Insurance System) contributions. Government employees will just select "Government Employee" in the Employment Type and the app will compute the GSIS contribution instead of the SSS contribution, other deductions, and net pay.

Sweldong Pinoy for RHQ/ROHQ Employees

The Sweldong Pinoy apps has been updated for employees of Regional or Area Headquarters (RHQs) and Regional Operating Headquarters (ROHQs). RHQ/ROHQ employees will just select "RHQ/ROHQ Employee" in the Employment Type and the app will compute their withholding tax, other deductions, and net pay.
