The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, pays house allowance to teachers on a monthly basis. This allowance is only paid to teachers employed on permanent and pensionable terms.
Teachers do not, though, get a flat rate of this allowance. Payment of house allowances is based on two criteria; the teacher’s job group and work station.
Teachers’ Workstations have been classified, by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), thus;
- Former Major Municipalities (Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Nyeri, Eldoret, Thika, Kisii, Malindi and Kitale),
- Other former Municipalities; Ruiru, Kikuyu, Kitui, Machakos, Mlolongo, Athi River, Vihiga, Wote, Mumias, Bomet, Limuru, Kericho, Kimilili, Kakamega, Kapsabet, Kiambu, Bungoma, Webuye, Busia, Runyenjes, Migori, Embu, Homa Bay, Lodwar, Meru, Nyahururu, Nanyuki, Maua, Voi, Siaya, Chuka and Kerugoya/ Kutus
- Other areas; this include all regions not mentioned in bullet 1-3 above.
Teachers working in Nairobi receive the highest house allowances as opposed to those working in reserves (other areas).
Similarly, teachers in higher job groups get more house allowances than their counterparts in lower groups.
