For the purpose of payment of the additional non-family hardship allowance, a duty station shall be designated as "non-family" by the Chair of the International Civil Service Commission when the United Nations Department of Safety and Security decides that for reasons of safety and security all eligible dependents are restricted from being present at the duty station for a period of six months or longer.

The additional non-family hardship allowance is payable to eligible internationally recruited staff members who are assigned to duty stations designated as non-family, for the duration of their assignment to those duty stations. If there is a change in the designation of the duty station (from family to non-family or the reverse) during the course of a staff memberís appointment to the duty station, an appropriate adjustment shall be made to the staff memberís salary to account for the amount payable or for discontinuation of the allowance, as of the effective date of the change in the duty station designation.

The Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) periodically issues a list of duty stations which qualify for the additional non-family hardship allowance. Please download the current approved list of non-family duty stations.

In the event of significant changes in the security conditions in these locations, the list may be updated or amended.
