Here’s Why You Might Have to Wait (Still)


pay rise. The 4% increase in pensions was due to take effect on September 9. However, this date does not apply to all retirees.

[Mise à jour du mercredi 14 septembre 2022 à 09h29] Accelerating inflation in France undermines your budget? In this context, it is legitimate to wait impatiently for a reassessment of your pension. Except as part of a series of measures in favor of purchasing power, the increase in pensions, up to 4%, was to become effective since September 9. As a reminder, it’s only aboutRetirement and disability pensions From the basic master planAnd the The pre-old age minimum is called the Solidarity Allowance for the Elderly (Aspa) and heir’s pension. It comes on top of the 1.1% increase that occurred in January of the same year. However, do not be surprised if the expected payment has not yet been made. The September 9th date relates to retirees affiliated with the General Scheme and MSA.

If you retired from the civil service, for example, you’ll have to wait until the end of September to see the effects of this measure of purchasing power. Are you related to Mutualité sociale agricole? The latter provided a key clarification: The amounts due for the month of July retroactively, on the occasion of the payment of September pensions paid in October, were specified on its website.

Finally, remember that the amount of the increase depends on each pension. The Minister of Labour, Olivier Dusupet, estimated that “if we take into account inflation at 4%, for a pension of 1,200 euros, that would be a gain of 45 euros per month” (in this case, that would be 48 euros). However, Sapiendo noted the differences between the plans. “To the extent that a 4 percent revaluation applies only to the base annuity and not to the supplemental annuity, the gains in purchasing power will be more or less close to 4 percent depending on the size of the base annuity’s share in the retired gross pension. On this point, all plans Not equal,” Valerie Batini, founder and president explains in a press release. So the total effect of the 4% increase in pensions – on the pension – is estimated at 2% for a former executive, versus +3.9% for a civil servant, Sabindo advances.

In theory, the pension increase during the August 9 payment, should have been applied to the July pension. However, it was delayed due to the lengthening of the parliamentary calendar. Know that you will not see an increase in your supplemental pension right away. If you were a former employee of the private sector, you will have to be patient. In fact, Agirc-Arrco manages the social partners who each year decide whether or not to increase supplemental pensions. So you will have to wait until the fall to see if your pension will be reassessed. In the microphone of France Inter, the Minister of Economy, Bruno Le Maire, announced at the end of July that pensions from the general scheme should continue to rise in 2023, due to the development of inflation.

The reassessment of pensions was supposed to take effect on August 9, which is the date corresponding to the payment of the pension for the month of July. However, it was postponed, and it will be felt from the payment of the August pension, and therefore on September 9. Be careful, because this date is not for all retirees. Here is the schedule to consider:

  • 1 September: Affiliated to the Carsat Alsace-Moselle
  • September 9: Affiliate with CNAV and MSA
  • September 28: Retired from state civil service
  • September 29: Retired from regional public service and hospitals

The increase in pensions announced by the government under the purchasing power law targets all retirees, whether they are former members of the private sector or civil servants, for example. The public service website asserts that it “applies to the pensions of retirees from the private sector, civil service, private schemes, and self-employed workers.” Be careful, this reassessment according to inflation is not about the whole pension, but only Basic Retirement Pension, Survivors Pension, Seniors Solidarity Allowance (Aspa) and Additional Disability Allowance (ASI).

yes. Ex-civil servants will benefit from the pension reassessment on July 1, 2022. The basic pension makes up the majority of the total pension. Therefore, an increase in pensions should be more profitable than private pensioners. Payment of the reassessed pension will not be effective on September 9 but at the end of the month (read above).

November 1 corresponds to the increase in supplementary pensionsAnd the By Agirc – Arrco Retirement Point Value (formerly separate funds Arrco and Agirc). In 2015 and 2016 they did not move. An increase occurred in November 2018. On November 1, 2019, the point was increased by 1% to settle at €1.2714, an amount that remained the same on November 1, 2020. On November 1, 2021, the point increased by ‘1%, rising to €1.2841.
