By the end of this post, you will have a clear understanding of how to do your monthly clearance without any hassle or stress.

Can you miss a monthly clearance and still get paid?

The short answer is no, you cannot miss a monthly clearance and still get paid. According to the NYSC rules, the monthly clearance is a mandatory requirement for all corps members to receive their monthly allowance and to qualify for their discharge certificate.

If you fail to do your clearance, you will be marked as absent and you will not receive your allowance for that month.

You will also risk extending your service year, as missing any clearance will count as a month of absence. Therefore, it is advisable that you do your monthly clearance diligently and timely, and avoid any unnecessary absence or excuse.

Effect of Missing NYSC Monthly Clearance

Missing a monthly clearance can have serious negative effects on your service year and your future prospects. Here are some of the consequences that you may face if you miss a monthly clearance:

  • Losing your allowance: The monthly allowance is the stipend that you receive from the NYSC for your service. If you miss a monthly clearance, you will not receive your allowance for that month. This means that you will lose a significant amount of money that you could have used for your personal or professional needs.
  • Extending your service year: The service year is the duration of your NYSC program, which is 12 months. If you miss a monthly clearance, you will be considered as absent for that month. This means that you will have to make up for that month by serving for an extra month. For example, if you miss the clearance for March, you will be marked as absent for March. This means that you will have to serve for 13 months, instead of 12 months. You will not be able to pass out with your batch, but with the next batch. This means that you will delay your graduation and your plans for further studies, employment, or other opportunities.
  • Facing disciplinary actions: The NYSC has a code of conduct that all corps members must abide by. If you miss a monthly clearance, you will be violating the code of conduct and you will be liable to disciplinary actions. These actions may include warning, query, suspension, extension, or expulsion, depending on the severity and frequency of your offense. For example, if you miss the clearance for April, you will receive a warning letter from your LGI. If you miss the clearance for May, you will receive a query letter from your LGI. If you miss the clearance for June, you will be suspended from your PPA and your CDS group. If you miss the clearance for July, you will be extended for two months. If you miss the clearance for August, you will be expelled from the NYSC program.
