NYSC Monthly Allowance Clearance Letter Samples and tips
As a corp member, you’re entitled to Federal Government monthly allowance and if you’re fortunate, you may also get a monthly allowance from the State Government of your PPA (Place of Primary Assignment). If your PPA is a private establishment, for example, a private school, you may receive monthly allowance too. (Triple dose)
To receive Federal Government monthly allowance, you must present NYSC monthly clearance letter to the State NYSC Zonal Inspector. This letter simply means you have been active in your Place of Primary Assignment and your employer has given you the go-ahead to receive the monthly allowance.
Many PPA (Place of Primary Assignment) especially new establishments do not have a template for NYSC monthly clearance letter so you will have to create a template for yourself and present to them for signing every month.
There are two types of NYSC monthly clearance letter –
- Clearance Letter written without PPA’s letter headed paper
- Clearance letter written with PPA’s letter headed paper
Recent update – In other to monitor corpers and the flow of payments, biometrics has been introduced in some State. This means you cannot receive allowee until you submit a clearance letter and thumbprint your present. Biometric is available in few Nigeria States.
