A sum of RM700 will be paid out to all civil servants on Grade 56 and below who are still serving as of April17 including 87 contract appointments.

Public services retirees on the other hand will receive BKKA totalling RM350.

In a statement, public services director-general, Datuk Dr Zulkapi Mohamed said that for this year, the BKKA had been extended to government retirees on pension, published pension recipients, Employees Provident Group Scheme retirees, veterans with pension and non-pensioned veterans.

"For retirees and veterans that have been reappointed on a permanent, temporary basis and are still serving as of April 17, they qualify to receive RM700," he said.

BKKA is a means of appreciating the efforts and sacrifices of civil servants in providing services to members of the public.
