Civil servants to get RM500 aid for Hari Raya


PUTRAJAYA: Civil servants on Grade 56 and below will be getting a special Hari Raya Aidilfitri aid of RM500 from the government.

In a statement, the Prime Minister’s Office said the one-off payment would be credited on May 6, together with the May salary.

“This aid is a form of appreciation towards the sacrifices of civil servants in delivering service to the people, especially during these challenging times.

“The aid is given earlier compared to previous years as the government wants to help the people with their preparations for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.

“The government hopes this special assistance will ease financial burdens, and may it be a motivator for civil servants to continue serving with full dedication, ” said the PMO.

The RM500 assistance also applies to contract and temporary staff, as well appointments under MySTEP (Short-Term Employment Programme).

Pensioners will receive a payment of RM250.

The aid is set to benefit some two million civil servants and pensioners in the country.
