Inflation and retirement compensation: which pensions?

The government has clarified the conditions for the payment of inflation compensation for retirees. “The inflation allowance will be paid to the beneficiaries of the minimum old age or a retirement pension of less than 2,000 euros net per month residing in France, and who were not working in October”. To calculate income, “the assessment of resources will be made on the basis of the amount of basic and supplementary retirement pensions (eg AGIRC-ARRCO), including survivors’ pensions. Eligibility for this allowance will be assessed on an individual basis, by retiree”, specifies a press release dated November 3. As for the amount of pensions, it will be established on the basis of the October 2021 pension.

Can couples each receive 100 euros?

Yes. The inflation allowance is an individual aid. This means that within a couple, if the two people receive less than 2000 euros net per month, 200 euros will be paid in total. If you receive 3500 euros together but one wins 1800 and the other 1700, you can therefore each receive 100 euros.

What salary will be taken into account for the inflation allowance?

To find out if you are entitled to it, “it is the salary in force at the moment of the measurement”, specifies Le Figaro. It is therefore “salary for october 2021 which will serve as a basis for companies to determine which employees are eligible”.

Should steps be taken?

No action is necessary to benefit from this new measure but the organizations concerned such as Urssaf must be in possession of the bank details of eligible persons. The 100 euros are paid directly by employers to their employees, by Urssaf for the self-employed, by the pension fund for retirees and by Pôle emploi for the unemployed. The payment dates may nevertheless differ, especially if your bank details have not been entered in time. Thus, self-employed workers and eligible auto-entrepreneurs who have not yet sent their bank details can do so now in order to receive the compensation “by the beginning of February”, specified Urssaf.
