A little financial boost is coming to many retirees these days.

A new increase in retirement pension! After the revaluation for the month of January and the increase in certain additional funds, it is the turn of one of the additional funds to pay a little more money to the retirees attached to it. But we might as well kill the announcement in the egg: this extension is not going to change the lifestyle of the 4.5 million people who go to the b&eacute ;benefit. However, when compared with other pension plans, this is an increase well above the inflation that is coming.

While basic pensions have been reduced. increased by 5.3% at the start of the year and that private withdrawals increased significantly. have inherited of a 4.9% increase in their complementary (Agirc-Arrco), it is the civil servants who, this time, benefit from a small extra money for their budget. Whether they are state civil servants (including teachers), hospital or local officials (municipal, departmental, regional employees), all will see the amount of their supplementary pension ;eacute;ment increase by 6.8%.

The Additional Civil Service Pension (RAFP) has in fact decided to to revalue the amount of pensions it pays, even if they are (almost) marginal each month. In fact, the average amount received is only around thirty euros (around 34.96 euros/month in 2023). A low annuity which can be explained by the method of calculating this supplement. The RAFP only takes into account income ancillary to the fixed salary, that is to say various allowances, bonuses, overtime or even benefits in kind . This payment is in addition to the basic pension (paid by the CNRACL), which is on average a little over 1,500 euros.

Concretely, the increase in the RAFP will not really be palpable for the withdrawals concerned. For a person who previously received 35 euros of supplementary pension, the amount will increase to … 37.38€, or 2.38€ moreover. Just enough to buy two more baguettes per month. Over the year, this represents less than 30 euros more in the budget. Please note, however, that the RAFP will proceed to catch up for the months of January and February, months during which the increase had not been recorded. applied since it had not yet been implemented. decided.

The withdrawals which are attached to this This additional fund can see the payment of the new amount arrive since Tuesday March 26, according to the payment schedule planned by the organization. But depending on the banks, the deadline can vary by a few days.
