The present state allowance provided to NYSC members across Nigeria.


The question of "How much is the current NYSC State allowance Nationwide?" is always on the mind of every prospective corp members (PCMs) preparing for NYSC Youth Corp programme.

Just in case you are not aware, NYSC members across all Sates in the federation used to receive the sum of N19,800 (Nineteen Thousand eight Hundred Naira) from the Federal Government before it was increased to N33,000.

Going by the current inflation of goods and services in the country, for an average corp member, this allowance can barely go anywhere in meeting his or her needs.

However, from the information we are getting, some lucky corp members do receive other forms of payments or stipends form their Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).

While others due to their Course of Study and or location are able to receive better payment packages from their PPA.
