    • With effect from 1 December 2015, the monthly National Service (NS) rank allowance for full-time National Servicemen (NSFs) and Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), Singapore Police Force (SPF), and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) will be increased by $80 across all ranks. The NS rank allowance, which supports our national servicemen in their basic personal upkeep, is reviewed periodically. It was previously increased by $60 in 2012.

      With the latest revision, a recruit/trainee will receive a monthly NS rank allowance of $560, up from the $480 he currently receives. After factoring in combat or operational allowances, a typical SAF NSF enlistee who is an Infantry Trooper (LCP) in an Infantry Battalion, an NSF TransCom Officer (SC2) in the SPF, or an NSF Paramedic (LCP) in the SCDF will receive $730 per month in allowance. A typical NSF officer holding the rank of 2LT/NSPI will receive a gross allowance of $1,230 per month.

       

      Notes:

      1. On top of the rank allowance, combat allowances are paid to those in combat vocations in the SAF, and operational allowances are paid to those in frontline vocations in the Home Team. Combat/Operational allowance ranges from $100 to $300 for NSFs, and $200 to $400 for NSmen.

      2. The figures in this table refer to the base quantum of the rank allowance for each rank. NSFs receive an increment equal to 5% of the base quantum of that rank for every 12 months that they serve in that rank. NSmen receive an increment equal to 5% or 10% of the base quantum of that rank, if they satisfactorily complete an NS activity in the preceding work year.

    • This is not bad by national service standard.... during my time, recruit pay only $135 per month.....my pay went from the temp job pay of $800 to $135 more than 25 years ago because of national service.

    • I think got something to do with the economy weakening. Economy already showing signs of going to breakdown. They probably increase the salary of NS men, so that NS men can spend more, so that businesses can keep up the revenue and GDP can maintain a bit.

      It's like the Government having stimulus package, except this is only for NS men.

      perhaps the gabrament should cut their own salary to save some money instead of giving to most of the Chia liao be minsiters.

      Seems these people have no shame n integrity

      ministers like - MRT breakdown is inevitable , to work as cleaner , i feel so rich when i loook at at CPF account. , big tummy army regulars , asking for solutions from a 17yo

      No KPI to measure?

    • Still very low, you can earn more per month part-time anywhere else. But any increase is welcome to show recognition for our soldiers efforts
