Family allowances and RSA will be revalued in April 2023. Retirement pensions will be from January 2023 according to information reported by Les Echos this Sunday, September 25.
A little help from the government
The purchasing power of the French will benefit from a small boost from the government. In fact, the State plans a slight increase in social benefits in 2023. That said, as of January, retirement pensions will increase by 0.8%. As for family allowances, they will increase by 1.7% in April 2023.

It will be the same for Active Solidarity Income (RSA). It was Les Echos who revealed this information on Sunday, September 25. The Government had already advanced the revaluations of social benefits to face the sharp rise in prices.
To do this, it was based on current inflation. Normally, it is based on the previous year. However, in January 2022, retirement pensions were subject toan increase of 1.1%. A few months later, on January 1, 2022 to be exact, these same pensions were revalued again. This time, 4%.
The government has also, at the same time, increased family allowances and RSA. +1.8% in April and +4% in July.
A residual increase on January 1, 2023
According to Les Echos, the executive’s assessment of the average revaluation of pensions over the year 2022 is 3.1%. This assessment is in the social security financing bill for 2023.
The newspaper specifies that the French should therefore benefit from a residual increase on January 1, 2023. An estimated residual increase in 0.8% in order to align with 2022 inflation. The same applies to family allowances and the RSA, which will be increased by 1.7%. An expected increase in April 1, 2023.
It looks like inflation will be high again next year, that is, +4.3%. That said, it should be at the center of debates in the National Assembly from mid-October. Especially when looking at the social security budget.

The left coalition has already made a claim. He wants a new anticipation of revaluations while the French face a crisis. In fact, the energy crisis still weighs heavily on the purchasing power of the French.
The PLFSS also focuses on three other areas
indignant pensions and family allowances, this social security financing bill also affects local authorities. This mainly refers to three areas, including the fight against medical deserts. Indeed, access to health care for all French people is at the heart of this PLFSS.
That said, the text provides for the creation of a 4th year of internship for medical students. According to François Braun, Minister of Health, this creation will take place in sub-dense areas as a priority. It was Emmanuel Macron who announced this measure during his presidential campaign. A measure that does not convince everyone.
As far as the communities are concerned, the government provides for the installation of doctors. The minister underlined the illegibility of the aid system. During the next conventional negotiation between health insurance and liberal medicine, it will be reviewed. Negotiations will take place in the coming weeks.
It will aim to achieve a unique contract for professionals. This is to avoid asking for a multitude of aids. In fact, this request for support must be directed to a single window. A single window representing the State, health insurance and local authorities. We will know more about the details of this device during the CNR on October 4.

The creation of a public childcare service.
The second central axis of this PLFSS is the gradual establishment of a public service for early childhood. This text must lay the first stone of this service in the continuity of the Plan of the first 1000 days. In any case, this is underlined by the office of the Minister of Solidarity. The care mode free choice add-on reform (CMG) composes this stone.
For the use of a babysitter, the remaining charge for the parents is currently higher. Much more important than a place in a nursery, that is, 60% of young children. The government says that from 2025 and full implementation of the new systemThere will be harmonization of dependent residues.
Starting in 2023, the number of places in daycare centers should increase. The goal isreach 200,000 additional places by 2033. In addition, the government also wants to increase support for single-parent families. Jean-Christophe Combe recalled that “a third of these families live on incomes below the poverty line. Jean-Christophe Combe is the Minister for Solidarity, Autonomy and People with Disabilities.
Your family allowance will thus go from 123.54 euros to 185.33 euros per month and per child, starting in November 2022. For these families, the CMG will also apply until the children turn 12 years old. Currently, it only extends to 6 years. In total, for children and families, the cost of the investment are 1,500 million euros.

Support for the autonomy of the elderly
The third axis is related to support for the autonomy of the elderly. The new government has buried the great law on the autonomy of the elderly. However, it has provided additional means to help the sector in the emergency and in the long term.
For autonomy, expenses will increase by 5.2%. This represents an envelope of approximately €1.5 billion. To respond to the emergency, the PLFSS foresees an allocation of 440 million euros for the structures from 2022.
In fact, inflation also affects medical-social establishments like the rest of French society. In addition, the PLFSS also plans to extend the salary increase to the voluntary sector.
And this, on the model of the increase in the index point, announced in mid-September. This is to respond to the urgency of staff shortages. To cover these expenses for the year 2023, an envelope of 670 million euros It is planned.
In addition, preparation measures are planned for the transformation of the offer of home care and establishment. It is for dependent elderly people. At Ehpad, we have budgeted, for 2023, 3,000 of the 50,000 nursing stations promised for the five-year period.
In addition, to respond to the Orpea scandal, there is a section on the financial transparency of private establishments. Jean-Christophe Combe underlined a great effort to keep the elderly at home. The creation of 4,000 SSIAD places strengthen home nursing services.
Two hours per week will be added to the assistance plan for home APA recipients. The Minister clarified that they will implement the measure in close collaboration with departments that finance the APA.
