Base NS Pay of $1,600 for Employed NSmen


Scenario Calculations

Employed NSman on 5-day work week,

holding 3SG rank, attending a High-Key ICT


Period of NS Activity: 3 to 14 Oct 2022


Calendar days for NS Activity: 12 days


Total number of calendar days in Oct: 31 days


Working days for NS Activity: 10 days


Total working days in Oct 2022: 21 days (inclusive of 1 day of Public Holiday) 

Service Pay (SP) (Based on Calendar Days)

Monthly SP of 3SG: $990

SP for NS Activity period: $990 x (12/31) = $383.23

Civilian Income Loss (Based on Working Days)

Ordinary Wages (OW) for Aug 2022 retrieved from CPF Board: $800

OW loss for NS activity period: $800 x (10/21) = $380.95

Aggregated Additional Wages (AW) for 12 months retrieved from CPF Board: $3,000

Average Monthly AW: $3,000 / 12 = $250

AW loss for NS activity period: $250 x (10/21) = $119.05

Total civilian income loss for NS activity period: $380.95 + $119.05 = $500

Make-Up Pay = Civilian Income Loss – SP

MUP = $500 – $383.23 = $116.77

Base NS Pay (Based on Calendar Days)

Base NS pay for NS activity period: $1,600 x (12/31) = $619.35

As total civilian income loss ($500) is less than base NS Pay ($619.35), MINDEF will top-up NSman’s MUP with $619.35 – $500 = $119.35

If employer is registered with the DIRECT scheme, $500 (civilian income loss) will be credited to the employer. $119.35 (top-up to MUP arising from base NS Pay) will be credited directly to NSman.

If employer is not registered with the DIRECT scheme, $619.35 (base NS Pay) will be credited directly to NSman.
