According to DBM’s National Budget Circular #1 signed by Secretary Amenah Pangandaman, civilian government personnel occupying regular, contractual, or casual positions; appointive or elective are eligible to receive the clothing allowance as long as they are rendering service for the government either on full-time or part-time basis.

It was also stipulated that this six-month service requirement does not apply to those who are required to wear uniforms at all times while performing their duties such as Security Guard, Special Police, medical and allied medical staff in hospitals, and others in similar situations.
