At about the same time last year, it was announced that every civil servant would not be getting any mid-year AVC bonus.
But that was last year.
THIS year however, because “Singapore economy is expected to recover this year in tandem with the global economy and progress in our domestic vaccination programme”, the Public Service Division (PSD) has announced that civil servants will be getting an AVC of 0.3 months as mid-year bonus.
There is also an additional cash bonus for lower ranked officers:
In addition, taking a progressive approach to the mid-year payment, civil servants in grades equivalent to MX13(I) and MX14 will receive an additional one-time payment of $350 and civil servants in junior grades equivalent to MX15 and MX16, as well as OSS Grades III to V, will receive a higher one-time payment of $700.
Compare this announcement with last year’s mid-year bonus.
In addition to mid-year and year-end bonuses, we understand that some civil servants can additionally receive up to 2-3 months of performance bonus, typically awarded in March. Check out this Salary.sg Forums discussion thread.
