On Thursday, August 31, 2022, the 34th Legislature passed proposed legislation, Bill No. 34-0289 – an act amending Act. 8474 relating to fiscal year 2022 operating budget for the Government of the Virgin Islands to appropriate the sum of $40,000,000 to pay outstanding retro payments from the General Fund in the fiscal year. All eligible recipients will receive this anticipated payout of 22.8% based current balance owed. The respective balance should reflect the past Retroactive Wage disbursements made in 2010 (16.7%) and 2021 ($1,700).

The Virgin Islands Division of Personnel (DOP) has been working diligently to distribute Retroactive Payments, pursuant to Act. 6984, that are owed to active and separate employees and retirees of the Government of the Virgin Islands.  Distribution of these retroactive payments is anticipated to begin September 30, 2022.
