By royal decree, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz ordered the continuation of allowances covering cost of living, which is 1,000 riyals monthly to citizens who are civil employees, and military personnel.
Pensioners who are beneficiaries of the General Organization for Social Insurance will receive 500 riyals monthly, as well as the continued increase of the monthly allowance of male and female students by ten percent.
