In short, all “those who suffer most from rising food, fuel or even energy prices. », are in the crosshairs of this one-time government aid. This was indicated by Bruno Le Maire, Minister of the Economy, at the RTL microphone on August 4, 2022.
Retirees will be able to benefit from the 2022 inflation bonus, provided they reach the minimum old age (ASPA). Let us also not forget that, on July 1, retroactively, the basic retirement pension will be increased by 4%.
How much and when?
This exceptional back-to-school aid will be paid on September 15, 2022. All practical terms, including the date and payment conditions, will be confirmed and specified in a decree to be published.
This emergency measure for purchasing power, its amount is 100 euros per household, to which is added an additional 50 euros per dependent child.
Therefore, each eligible person will receive a bonus of 100 euros. This payment is made by the Caisse d’Allocations Familiales (CAF), the Mutualité Sociale Agricole (MSA) or any other organization in charge of paying the usual allowances.
How to get the inflation bonus?
If you are eligible, payment will be made automatically by the organization on which their social minimums depend. No action is required on your part. For example, if you receive the RSA or APL, the payment will be made by your Caisse d’Allocations Familiales. If you are looking for a job, Pôle Emploi will pay you the bonus.
What is the difference between the back to school bonus and the inflation bonus?
The government is warning the more modest French that the inflation bonus should not be confused with the Back to School Bonus (ARS). Of course, you can receive the exceptional back-to-school bonus even if you receive ARS.
The Back to School Grant has been in existence since 1974. having been subjected a revaluation of 1.8% in April 2022, after 4% according to the purchasing power law, the Back to School Allowance is always paid in August. This year the payment is made in two stages: on August 16 and then a few days later for the amount corresponding to the 4% revaluation. It will therefore be a supplement of between €15 and €16.50, depending on the number of children in the household.
The government awards ARS based on economic resources to families with one or more school-age children between 6 and 18 years of age. She is there to help them with the costs of going back to school. Here are the amounts by age:
- €376.98 for a child aged 6 to 10, then €15.07 in September.
- €397.78 for a child aged 11 to 14, then €15.91 in September.
- €411.56 for a child aged 15 to 18, then €16.46 in September.
Eligibility for ARS imposes certain conditions. About 3 million families benefit from it. In order to have access to it, the family’s resources must not exceed a certain limit set according to the number of dependent children. It is the income of the year N minus 2 that is taken into account, therefore the year 2020 for the ARS 2022.
It is for households whose resources do not exceed the maximum limit of 25,270 euros of reference tax income per dependent child. Then, up to 42,935 euros for four children (2020 income tax reference).
The allowance is paid directly by the Caisses d’Allocations Familiales (CAF) or the Mutualité sociale agricole (MSA).
Regarding the inflation premium, was voted this year in response to inflation. The measure was also approved in the context of debates in parliament on the law on emergency measures for the protection of purchasing power. The premium affects only the most modest households, whether or not they have children.
