Civil servants to get year-end bonus of 0.8 month


SINGAPORE - Civil servants will be paid a year-end Annual Variable Component (AVC) of 0.8 month, with lower-wage officers getting a bonus of at least $1,200, said the Public Service Division in a statement today.

Some 980 civil servants are expected to benefit from the minimum bonus payout of $1,200.

The year-end AVC payment was decided in consultation with the public sector unions and based on lower economic growth of 3 per cent this year, compared with last year's 3.9 per cent growth, wrote the statement.

All civil servants will also get the Non-Pensionable Annual Allowance of one month, to be paid in December together with the AVC.
