The government has announced a one-off RM600 special financial assistance for civil servants Grade 56 and below.
Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, when presenting Budget 2021 in Parliament today, said retired civil servants and non-pensionable veterans, meanwhile, will also be entitled to a RM300 one-off special assistance payment.
The aid will be disbursed early next year, he said.
“Since being appointed as a minister almost eight months ago, and coming from the corporate sector, I am now aware how committed and steadfast the civil servants are in carrying out the trust given.
“Working tirelessly, they serve beyond expectations, and rise beyond the call of duty to safeguard the people, support businesses and strengthen the economy,” he said.
