Work And Pensions Staff Bonuses

  Rosie Cooper MP Labour, West Lancashire
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much was awarded to staff of her Department in bonuses in each of the last three financial years.

 Kit Malthouse MP Conservative, The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
In 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 DWP headcount was 89805, 84698 and 83851 respectively. In addition to annual salaries our staff were paid an annual, non-consolidated, performance-related bonus. For the majority of our most junior grades, AA to EO, the amounts were, on average in each year, £463. Total payments were: 2014/2015 £42,132,346; 2015/2016 £40,074,154; 2016/2017 £41,359,617.

Rosie Cooper didn’t mention junior grades in her question. We can only wonder how much the higher graded higher paid staff received in bonuses…we should be told!


  1. DWP staff get bonuses for doing what exactly? How much do NHS staff receive in bonuses for doing their job? Nowt, zilch and bugger all.

    • Most NHS staff haven’t even received decent annual inflation-proofed wage increases, let alone bonuses. The system is so bizarre, not to say unfair?
