TSC House Allowances For Teachers In Kenyan Municipalities
TSC House Allowances for Kenyan Municipalities’ Teachers. Every month, the Teachers Service Commission pays salaries and benefits to the teachers it employs. The salaries differ based on the job group.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) in Kenya provides a number of allowances to all employed teachers in addition to their base pay each month.
AON Minet insurance and the National Health Insurance Fund, or NHIF, get a portion of the housing allowance, commuter allowance, leave allowance, hardship allowance, and medical allowance, which is not paid directly to the teacher.
The considerable housing benefits provided to teachers employed in big cities, towns, and municipalities (across a variety of occupational groupings) are the main topic of this article.
The TSC dwelling allowances are only little impacted by the location and work group of the teaching station. For example, living expenses for teachers are higher in cities with higher cost of living than they are in rural areas.
Additionally, teachers who work in the same municipality but in different job groups receive varying levels of housing allowance.
The Commission has categorized municipality areas into three categories:
- The capital city (Nairobi),
- Major cities (Mombasa, Kisumu, and Nakuru),
- And other major towns (Eldoret,
- Meru, etc.).
Compared to teachers stationed in other municipalities and big municipalities, Nairobi teachers are paid the most.
Mombasa, Nakuru, and Kisumu are some of the major municipalities. Higher job group teachers from these regions employed by TSC receive a larger salary than lower work group teachers.
As a result, salaries for teachers in municipalities are determined by their positions, duties, and the areas in which they are stationed.
Below is an overview of the house allowances for teachers in Nairobi, major municipalities, and other municipalities.
