Courts, ports, job and tax centres and emergency police call centres will be hit by the walkout by members of the Public and Commercial Services Union.
Services at Jobcentres across Lincolnshire and other government offices will grind to a halt today.
Cabinet Office minister, Tessa Jowell MP, is reported by BBC News as saying that the decision to strike was 'very disappointing', particularly as 'less than one in five' of PCS members voted in favour of the action, representing 'only around 10% of the total civil service workforce'.
"We have 470-odd members in the county, including 250 in Lincoln, and we know that a lot of them are walking out, along with a lot of non-members.
"Our members face losing a great deal of money.
"The Government is arguing that the public knows why we are going on strike but we don't believe they do."
"The changes to the civil service compensation scheme were agreed with five of the six civil service unions after 18 months of negotiation and consultation. These unions all agree with us that the resulting deal is fair for staff and taxpayers.
"During the negotiating process, we responded to union concerns by ensuring additional protection for lower paid staff.
"Those earning £30,000 or less - 80% of all staff - will still get up to between two and three years salary, while civil servants earning over £30,000 will have redundancy pay capped at two times salary.
"This package brings the civil service more into line with the rest of the public sector and still offers more generous terms than much of the private sector."
