Federal MPs will take home thousands of extra dollars a year after the Remuneration Tribunal decided to boost public office pay by 4 per cent on Monday. It marks the biggest pay increase for federal MPs since 2014, with backbenchers to net more than $225,700, up from $217, 060. The Prime Minister, meanwhile, will see his salary grow by around $22,000, from $564,350 to nearly $587,000. The deputy prime minister and MPs who hold additional roles, including in the cabinet, get a percentage on top of the base salary received by backbenchers and are set to net from around $10,000 to $17,800 extra. When questioned about the increase, Anthony Albanese said the tribunal made these decisions at "arm's length from politicians". "I have no role in in any of these processes, and that's as it should be. You do not want politicians determining their own conditions," he said. The independent body said it reached its decision after taking into account a decade of "conservative" increases. In 2022, the tribunal awarded public offices a "modest" 2.75 per cent pay rise after two years of no increases.

"In contrast, remuneration increases more generally in the public and private sectors (based on overall June WPI data from 2014 - 2023) have equated to 23 per cent." It comes after the Tribunal raised travel allowances for MPs and senators earlier this month. MPs will get a pay rise from September 1 while other public office holders have their increase backdated to July 1.
