Villar’s net worth in 2009 was lower by P1 million compared to his net worth declaration in 2008.

Trillanes’ net worth increased by half a million. He reported that his wife received a P700,000 separation pay from the military.

Net worth can be calculated by subtracting a senator’s liabilities from his/her declared assets.

According to the Senate website, a senator receives P35,000 a month while the Senate President receives P40,000.

Under Presidential Decree 677, which amended the Republic Act 3019 (Anti Graft and Corrupt Practices Act), all government employees are required to file their “true detailed and sworn statement of assets and liabilities, including a statement of the amounts and sources of his income, the amounts of his personal and family expenses and the amount of income taxes paid" every year. - RJAB Jr/KBK, GMANews.TV
