Civil servants to receive mid-year bonus of $30 – $60 monthly
Posted by temasektimes on June 6, 2012
Civil servants will be paid a mid-year Annual Variable Component (AVC) of 0.3 month, said the Singapore government.
Division IV officers, including those earning more than S$1,000 a month, will get an additional increment of S$60 per month while Division III officers, all of whom earn more than S$1,000 per month, will get an additional increment of S$30 per month.
This is in addition to their normal annual increments which will benefit some 9,500 civil servants.
The government said it has taken into consideration the National Wages Council’s (NWC) recommendation to grant a built-in wage increase of at least S$50 to low-wage workers earning up to S$1,000 per month.
