Who will be affected by the minimum pension of 1200 euros? The 8 p.m. answers you
Will all retirees, future and current, be able to receive the minimum pension of 1,200 euros promised in the government reform?
First, let’s talk about future retirees, who are still working today. “Employees, craftsmen-traders, farmers“, specifies Elisabeth Borne on her Twitter account. To be entitled to this minimum pension, they must fulfill one condition – and not the least: to have completed a full career at the minimum wage. “It involves both reaching legal age and having all of your trimesters“, explains Rémy Gautier, director of the consulting division for Retreat to the greatest.
The government gives an example in its press kit : “Hélène, born on September 1, 1961, having made a full career at the minimum wage from the age of 20, could leave before the reform with a pension of 1,118 euros gross per month. After reform, she will leave at 62 years and 3 months and will have a pension of 1,193 euros per month.. Be careful, when the government speaks of 1,200 euros per month of minimum retirement, it is rather “about 1,200 euros per month”, adds Rémy Gautier, who wonders about the implementation of the measure: “How will the funds identify employees who have been on the minimum wage all their lives? What about people who received a minimum wage because they were part-time?“
