Civil Servant Bonus 2019 Year End


All non-senior civil servants will get a total of 1.1 months of bonus and a one-off grade-dependent payment at this year end, according to this PSD press release.

.. senior civil servants will receive a one-off payment of $400 in place of the year-end Annual Variable Component (AVC). All other civil servants will receive a 0.1 month year-end AVC and an additional one-off lump sum payment of $250 to $1,500 according to the pay grades of the respective officers.

This bonus consists of the standard one-month NPAA (which is commonly called the “13th month bonus”) and 0.1 month of AVC.

Both the Non-Pensionable Annual Allowance (NPAA) and Annual Variable Component (AVC) will be paid in December.

Senior civil servants will not get any AVC. Instead, they will get a one-off payment of a fixed $400.

Other civil servants, i.e. the non-senior ones, will get a lump sum payment that ranges from $250 to $1,500 depending on their respective pay grades

Junior civil servants in Grades III to V of the Operations Support Scheme (OSS) will receive the highest lump sum amount of $1,500.

If you include this year’s mid-year bonus of 0.45 month, all non-senior civil servants will be getting a total guaranteed bonus of 1.55 months for the entire 2019, 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 may get up to 4 months+ of bonuses in total. Check out this Forums discussion thread.)

This year’s total bonus (excluding performance bonus) is 0.95 month less than last year’s AVC + NPAA, which in turn was the same as 2017’s total bonus of 2.5 months.
