SINGAPORE — About 22,000 serving officers for the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) will receive a 3% to 10% increase in their gross monthly salaries.
This was announced by MHA in a press release on Monday (31 Oct), stating that officers on the Home Affairs Uniformed Services (HUS), Home Affairs Services (HAS-ICA), Home Team Specialist Scheme (HTSS) and Commercial Affairs Scheme (CAS) will receive the salary adjustments from 1 January 2023.
MHA notes that its uniformed officers and specialists play a vital role in keeping Singapore safe and secure.
“The salary adjustments are a result of MHA’s periodic reviews to ensure that our officers’ salary packages keep pace with the market and remain competitive. This will enable MHA to continue to attract and retain good officers,” said MHA.
Besides salary adjustments, MHA emphasised that it will continue to provide its officers with meaningful career opportunities in the Home Team, and support their growth and development.
This pay raise comes after an earlier announcement by the Public Service Division in June this year to increase the salaries of Singapore civil servants by between 5 and 14 per cent from 1 August. About 23,000 officers are said to have benefited from the raise.
