Inflation bonus 2022: a payment at the end of September, for whom?

Inflation bonus 2022 a payment at the end of September

EXCEPTIONAL RE-ENTRY BONUS. The next payment of the inflation bonus will take place at the end of September. In total, 11 million households are affected by the payment of 100 euros.

[Mis à jour le 22 septembre 2022 à 08h06] The inflation bonus or exceptional back-to-school bonus was introduced this summer as part of the purchasing power law. This system aims to support the most modest households in the face of rising consumer prices, i.e. nearly 11 million households. The amount of this premium is 100 euros plus 50 euros per additional dependent child. The first payment took place on September 15, 2022. Rest assured, not everyone has been served yet. The next payment date is set for September 27, 2022, and concerns beneficiaries of the ASS or the monthly flat-rate premium. As a reminder, the amount will be sent to you by automatic transfer. No action on your part is necessary.

In mid-October, beneficiaries of theASPA will in turn receive the exceptional aid of 100 euros. Finally, in mid-November, the last to be served will be the beneficiaries of the activity bonus. The amount will be 28 euros plus 14 euros per additional dependent child, in addition to receiving the activity bonus. As a reminder, this inflation bonus is reserved for recipients of social minima and scholarship students. Apart from these different categories, no payment will take place. We invite you to contact the organization concerned for more information, such as Pôle Emploi or CAF depending on your situation. We also remind you that the banks have quite different transaction processing times from one institution to another, hence the delays observed for some beneficiaries since the start of the payment.

The recomposition of the National Assembly could slightly delay the government’s intervention concerning the final details of the inflation bonus of 100 euros paid in the fall of 2022. In particular concerning the paying bodies. For the time being, we do not know who pays the inflation bonus according to the status of the beneficiaries. Referring to the paying agencies for the first inflation bonus distributed to 38 million French people at the start of the year, here is who from the Caf or Pôle Emploi, for example, will pay the new inflation bonus. For the moment, no decision has been made:

  • Coffee : recipients of social minima
  • Employment center : jobseekers
  • Scholarship students : Crus
  • Officials : State
  • Retired : CNAV
  • Employees : employer
  • Independents : Urssaf

The emergency aid desired by Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne aims to help “the most modest“. Beneficiaries of certain social benefits such as PLAthe RSAI’AAH or theaspa will benefit from it from the start of the 2022 school year. ALF and ALF recipients are also concerned. In reality, it is the poorest French people who will be able to benefit from this new inflation bonus or food emergency bonus at the start of the 2022 school year, i.e. 14 million people. This exceptional back-to-school assistance will also benefit the scholarship students and to the beneficiaries of theSSA.

The new aid to fight against inflation and supposed to strengthen the purchasing power of the French desired by Elisabeth Borne will be paid directly into the bank account of the beneficiaries, from the start of the 2022 school year! The 10.8 million households concerned should see a bank transfer appear from September 2022. From now on, the exact date has been set by the executive: the payment will take place on September 15, 2022. On the other hand, for the beneficiaries of the activity bonus, the payment will not take place until two months later, in November.

The amount of this new Borne inflation premium will reach 100 euros plus 50 euros per additional dependent child. “In concrete terms, the aid will amount to 200 euros for a household with two children” indicates the executive in his press kit.

Recipients of the active solidarity income (RSA) will indeed receive the inflation bonus in the amount of 100 euros, the payment of which is scheduled for September 15, 2022. Recipients of the RSA will also receive the increase in their allowance of 4% linked to the implementation of the purchasing power law.
