CIVIL servants in Singapore will get a mid-year bonus of 0.5 month, the Public Service Division (PSD) announced on Thursday afternoon. This is slightly higher than the 0.45 month they received in 2016.

PSD also said that the government supports the National Wages Council's recommendations for low-wage workers.

Therefore, civil servants in grades IV and V of the operations support scheme will receive a built-in wage increase of S$15 and S$20 respectively. This will be in addition to their annual increment in 2017.

"It signals the government's continued commitment to raise the salaries of lower-wage civil servants. Around 1,485 civil servants will benefit from the built-in wage increase," the PSD statement said.

The mid-year payments were decided in close consultation with the public sector unions, and will be made in July.
