RM500 Raya bonus for civil servants

PUTRAJAYA: Civil servants up to Grade 56 will receive special Hari Raya Aidilfitri aid of RM500 from the government.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said the payment would be credited on May 6, together with their May salary.

“This aid is a form of appreciation towards the sacrifices of civil servants in delivering services 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 the financial burden of civil servants and motivate them to continue to serve with full dedication, ” the PMO said in a statement yesterday.

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

Meanwhile, government retirees will receive a payment of RM250.

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