Payment


Employed NSmen

Payment timeline

You or your employer will be paid the auto-generated MUP amount and Service Pay (i.e. NS Pay) within 10 working days from the start of the ORNS activity. 

If your employer proposes adjustments or submits new MUP claims two weeks before the start of your ORNS activity and MINDEF accepts the adjustments/new claims, you or your employer will also be paid the adjusted amount within 10 working days from the start of your ORNS activity. 

Otherwise, you or your employer will first be paid the auto-generated MUP amount and Service Pay within 10 working days from the start of your ORNS activity. If MINDEF accepts your proposed adjustments, any additional payment will be paid within 14 working days upon the receipt of the proposed claims/adjustments and supporting documents. 
 

Payment Method

For NSmen whose employers are registered with the Direct Reimbursement to Employers of Claims for NS Training (DIRECT) scheme, you will continue to be paid per your employer’s regular pay schedule. Your employer will then be reimbursed by MINDEF. If you are eligible for the base NS Pay, MINDEF will credit the top-up as a result of the base NS pay directly to your bank account number provided to MINDEF. 

For NSmen whose employers are not registered with the DIRECT scheme, MINDEF will be crediting the MUP directly to your bank account number provided to MINDEF. 

It is your responsibility to ensure that your bank account details is updated via Update My Profile on the NS Portal.
