My Brother's Salary

Philippines
March 1, 2018 8:14am CST
My youngest brother is graduating this March. He's done with all his requirements and supposedly graduated in December of last year. He doesn't want to graduate so he signed the graduation application form for March instead. While waiting for his graduation, his boss from his part-time job considered him as a full time employee. He is now earning for a living. I don't ask money from him. In January, he handed me some amount that will help me with expenses in our apartment. His February salary is on hold because he can't acquire or apply for a bank account. He doesn't have government IDs yet. His boss is willing to credit the amount on my bank account but he needs a bank account similar to his. So he can do a bank-to-bank transfer. I have BPI and RCBC but not BDO (these are abbreviations of banks here). I will go to BDO tomorrow to open an account so my brother can get his salary.

@jobelbojel thats the expenses for our day to day office transaction. Usually I paid it first then reimburse to the company later. Also thats for those reimbursement for medical benefits.

congrats to your brother, and it's nice that he contributed something to your budget. maybe you can make the bdo account a joint account later when he finally has his government IDs.

Once he has his govt IDs, the company will issue him payroll ATM.

@jobelbojel then you'll close your bdo account? maybe he can apply for a postal ID for the meantime.

@jobelbojel And it would be a lot easier now since he can have his share of the apartment you have.

@vsai2008 it wasn't successful. I posted a new discussion about it. And I did not see your question before posting it.

Congratulations to your brother and I wish him well in his career. Hopefully, soon he will receive the necessary credentials. I think it's wonderful that he contributed to the household expenses without being asked. That's a good sign of character.
