Early incentive payment for civil servants to be disbursed on Feb 23
PUTRAJAYA, Feb 6 – The Early Incentive Payment of RM2,000 to all civil servants grade 56 and below including contract appointees and RM1,000 to those in the Jawatan Utama Sektor Awam will be disbursed on Feb 23.
The matter was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim during the monthly gathering of the Ministry of Finance today.
“RM1,000 will be given to those in the Jawatan Utama Sektor Awam involving the police, fire department, armed forces and all uniformed personnel.
“An incentive payment of RM1,000 will also be made to all government retirees including pensionable and non-pensionable veterans,” he said.
Anwar, who is also Minister of Finance, said the Early Incentive Payment would be channelled while waiting for the Public Service Remuneration System (SSPA) review to be finalised.
Anwar said the report of the SSPA review is expected to be completed within two months, before being presented to the Cabinet for final approval.
“I have started the SSPA meeting with the Chief Secretary to the Government (Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali) and the director-general of Public Service (Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Dahlan Abdul Aziz), (they) agreed to speed it up,” he said.
Previously, the media reported that the Interim Report 1 on the SSPA review had been submitted to Anwar on Jan 19.
When tabling the 2024 Budget on Oct 13 last year, the Prime Minister announced that the full implementation of the SSPA would begin in 2025.
