Lowering retirement age of teachers urged
by Augustin Dao-anis

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Teachers in this province support the proposed lowering of mandatory retirement age of public school teachers from 65 to 60 years old and optional retirement age from 60 to 55 years old.

During the 3rd Benguet Teachers’ Day celebration last Sept. 29, the National Association of Public Secondary School Heads, Inc. (NAPPSHI)-Benguet Chapter launched a signature campaign for the cause.

“Around 2,500 teachers responded to our signature campaign,” said NAPSSHI-Benguet Chapter president Wilbert H. Cuidno, currently the principal of Benguet National High School-main campus.

Cuidno said the NAPSSHI-Benguet Chapter will attach the copy of the signature list to the resolution to Benguet Rep. Ronald M. Cosalan.

He said teaching is a rigorous job so it is difficult to handle for a teacher who is beyond 55 years old.

In the 17th Congress, Sen. Francis G. Escudero filed Senate Bill 89 that lowers the retirement age of Department of Education employees from 65 to 60 years old.

Prior to this, the the House of Representatives at the committee level approved in 2015, HB 4501, which seeks to lower the mandatory retirement age of public school teachers from 65 to 60 years old and optional retirement age from 60 to 55 years old.

On the same year, ACT Partylist Rep. Antonio L. Tinio filed HB 5533 which also seeks for the lowering of public school teachers retirement age.

“The lowering of teachers’ retirement age means enjoyment of remaining years outside classroom setting,” said Janet S. Cabael, a teacher at La Trinidad National High School, Lubas, La Trinidad.
