Any civil servant who reaches full retirement age, dies in service or on medical grounds starting this year onward will receive a severance pay at the rate of two months of salary against the number of years they have worked.

The decision taken by the previous Public Service Commission (PSC) to offer civil servants with severance pay at the one month salary rate has been revoked by the current commission, said PSC Secretary General (SG), Jean-Yves Bibi.

The Commission is yet to decide whether severances will be backdated to 2017 when the one-month rate became effective as the country is facing a crisis at the moment, said SG Bibi.

However, SG Bibi has made it clear that anyone retiring anytime this year and the next coming years will be entitled to the two months severance pay rate.
