Allowance is another way the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency pays its staff. This includes;
Every NDLEA officer is covered by the National Health Insurance Program including their family members.
This particular allowance is not for all the staff. Only the senior officers in the agency are likely to be entitled to a travel allowance. On several occasions, this set of officers travels for official duty outside the state of their primary assignment.
NDLEA officers are entitled to accommodations when there is a transfer to a new location. But failure to provide suitable accommodation by the agency will call for a housing stipend paid to the officer.

NDLEA training allowances are paid to candidates based on their level of qualifications.
N25,000 – N45,000 is paid monthly to those who applied with B.sc or HND. However, N15,000 – N25,000 is paid to candidates who applied with SSCE, NCE, and ND.
