Civil Servants will receive year-end payments from the Government of Singapore
The patience and hard work of the civil servants have been much appreciated.
The government of Singapore announced that they would be giving an additional payment and 1.0 year-end bonus to the civil servants.
The battle against the COVID19 was never an easy one. The rules by the government to be implemented would never be applied if there were no civil servants to monitor the citizens and other individuals living in Singapore. These people, the public servants, risked their lives to protect and help the government take steps towards the better days of Singapore.
As the year ended, the government announced that they would be giving a 1.0 monthly bonus and an additional payment.
Who will receive this payment?
On November 22, Monday, the Public Service Division released a statement regarding the year-end payments. Based on the announcement, the government will give all civil servants a year-end bonus of 1.0 month. They will also add $500 to all those who had MX15 to MX16 and OSS grades III to V. On the other hand, civil servants who belong to the Non-Pensionable Annual Allowance will have their 13th-month bonus.
It will serve as a recognition to all civil servants for their contribution to the government amid the pandemic's start.
"The Public Service has demonstrated tenacity and resolve in the prolonged battle against COVID-19. The Government deeply appreciates all public officers' hard work and perseverance in the fight against the pandemic. Working together, we will emerge stronger from this crisis, as a nation."
Last year, there was no mid-year and end-year bonus given to the civil servants, as the government was having trouble in the economy upon the arrival of the COVID19.
Compared to the circuit breaker, 2021 is slowly recovering and starts to grow again this year. Later, Singapore announced to be on the Stabilisation Phase to Transition Phase. The economy also remained stable to be stable this year. In the third quarter of 2021, the economy expanded to 7.1%, which is good news.
