Summer bonuses up 1.9% for national civil servants

July 1, 2017

Tokyo- Summer bonuses paid to rank-and-file national civil servants in Japan on Friday stood at 642,100 yen on average, up 12,000 yen, or 1.9 percent, from a year earlier.
The increase reflected an amendment to the public officials remuneration law, based on a 2016 recommendation by the National Personnel Authority to raise summer bonuses by 0.05 month of salary.
Among officials at special posts, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the Supreme Court's Chief Justice Itsuro Terada each received summer bonuses of 5.29 million yen, the highest among national public servants. (Jiji Press)
