it is because they need an outlet to vent their frustration and more importantly, to nurse their bruised egos. What better way to prove that they have succeeded in life other than talking big on forums.

15K at 29 as a manager? More like an undergrad in SIM dreaming. haha

Starts at 6B, and goes to 6A, 5B, 5A, etc.
Grades 6 and 5 are timescale, while Grade 4 to 1 is superscale.

Timescale salaries are currently.. behind the private sector a bit coz the private sector salaries jumped a bit faster in the past two years. But it will probably be reviewed and increased soon.

Superscale salary is well... basically what you would expect.

Hmm but what sort of numbers are associated with 6B or 6A and so forth? If I'm not wrong the legal service payscales are higher than the MX payscale, but not sure by how much exactly.

At this pay scale, I would expect that you hob nob with enough people in the know about such things. You have to come to this forum and ask?

You won't find detailed information on Legal Service salary online. This information is confidential and officers are bound by OSA.

But as a rough guide, for Grade 6B (entry grade), if you have 2nd upper honours and did NS, you can earn almost 80k pa, including bonuses.

Hey cheers man.

Yes I quickly found out about the almost complete lack of public information on LSO salaries online after a few minutes of searching. Why is this so? Why would Legal Service Officers be especially bound not to reveal their salary when they are public servants just like the typical officer in a Ministry? This seems very strange to me (that public service salaries paid for by taxpayer dollars should be allowed to be held in such confidence), and if anyone has an explanation it would be really welcome. I mean, even accurate Admin service salary info can be found if really motivated, though not online, in books.

In addition, does the Legal Service give "vocation" related bonuses, eg. for being a JLC and whatnot?

Thanks to anyone who can fill me in.

I have a more fundamental question.

How does the earlier poster conclude that the salary of a legal service officer is supposedly confidential and subject to the OSA?

Information regarding a legal service officer's salary, albeit extremely outdated information, can be found online rather easily: http://www.lsc.gov.sg/eligi.html
