Interior Minister: Armed Forces Regulars to Receive HUF 500,000 Bonus

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.12.30.

Regulars of the Hungarian armed forces will receive gross 500,000 forints (EUR 1,500) in year’s end bonuses, the interior minister said on Friday.

Sándor Pintér told a press conference that the government’s aim was to recognise the dedication of those working for the armed forces and thank them for their efforts to boost Hungary’s security in a way that reflects the increase in the country’s economic capabilities.

The prime minister has instructed the national security cabinet to also work out additional allowances, he said. In line with one of the proposals, all regular staff will be entitled to six months’ pay every three years from 2020, he added.

Pintér said the activities of Hungary’s armed forces and law enforcement staff were the basic guarantees to the peace and security of the country.
