Sweldong Pinoy in 2019
The year is almost over. In 2019, we have done some design and performance improvements to our Sweldong Pinoy apps. We also worked on new features and new projects. Here are some of our major highlights for 2019.
SSS Contribution Increase
Republic Act No. 11199 (The Social Security Act of 2018) was signed earlier this year by the president. Under the law, the monthly contributions of SSS members will be increased from the current 11% to 12%. We have updated https://www.sweldongpinoy.com and released Version 4.1 of the Sweldong Pinoy Android app to use the new rates. Learn more here.
PhilHealth Contribution Increase
The Universal Health Care Act (Republic Act No. 11223) was signed into law last February and PhilHealth released Circular 2019-009 announcing the new premium contribution schedule effective December 7. We have updated https://www.sweldongpinoy.com and released Version 4.2 of the Sweldong Pinoy Android app to use the new rates. Learn more here.
New Budget Pinoy
We have also released the new version of Budget Pinoy, which now has a web app at https://www.budgetpinoy.com other than the Android app.
Budget Pinoy is a tool for Filipinos in finding out how much their asking salary should be based on their budget. Users can input their budgets and specify if they are Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, or Annnually. These will be totalled and the app will show the user the asking rate they need to earn enough for their budget. The net pay and deductions are computed using Sweldong Pinoy.
We have been experimenting with adding Dark Theme alongside the design changes we're adding on our apps. The latest release of Sweldong Pinoy Android App and the new Budget Pinoy app now have Dark Theme support.
We'll continue to improve the designs for both Light and Dark Themes. The next version of Thirteenth Month Android app and our other apps will include Dark Theme. We're also experimenting on adding Dark Theme support on our web apps.
