All civil servants will get a total of 2 months of bonus at this year end, according to this PSD press release.
Civil servants to get year-end AVC of 1 month. Lower-wage civil servants to get minimum year-end AVC of $1,800.
This bonus consists of the standard one-month NPAA (which is commonly called the “13th month bonus”) and 1 month of AVC.
Both the Non-Pensionable Annual Allowance (NPAA) and Annual Variable Component (AVC) will be paid in December.
This year’s bonus also has a minimum AVC payment for low-wage civil servants, set at $1,800. This means low-wage officers will get at least $1,800 for their year-end AVC.
If you include this year’s mid-year bonus of 0.5 month, all civil servants will be getting a total bonus of 2.5 months for the entire 2017, excluding performance and other additional bonuses. (We understand that some civil servants can additionally receive up to 2-3 months of performance bonus, typically awarded in March. This means they get up to 5-6 months of bonuses in total. Check out this discussion thread.)
This is 0.55 month more than last year’s AVC + NPAA bonus of 1.95 months, which in turn was 0.2 month less than 2015’s grand total bonus of 2.15 months.
It is really good for achieve this, whether you’re beginning or you have several under your buckle.
