Monrovia, Liberia - The Ministry of Finance and Development Planning clarifies that the government has already paid the salaries of fifteen thousand (15,000) non-MCSS teachers for the month of August, and is now processing their September pay.
Currently, about two thousand (2000) non-MCSS teachers who have account issues are getting their August pay through arrangements agreed upon between MFDP and MOE.
Meanwhile, some nine hundred (900) MCSS teachers were paid fully for August yesterday. These teachers received only Liberian dollars. About 200 MCSS teachers who are paid in both USD and Liberian Dollars have received their 20 percent Liberian Dollar portions, but the bank in which they have their accounts has not yet posted the 80 percent to their USD accounts.
Additionally, the Ministry of Finance and Development informs the public that September pay for all MCSS teachers, who are paid differently from the 17,000 public school teachers, has been sent to the bank and is expected to be credited to their accounts by close of this week.
Finally, the Ministry announces that September checks for health and security sector workers have already been sent to commercial banks.
The Ministry of Finance wants to inform the public that the government is doing its best to pay teachers, health workers and all civil servants on time.
