Pension reform: actions for families

The government is reviewing its copy to favor women in particular. For divorced women, on the death of their ex-husband, they will be entitled to 55% of the deceased’s pension in proportion to the years of marriage. This is an advantage that had disappeared in the initial project. If the ex-husband remarried, his spouse will receive 70% of the couple’s income as expected. The new expenditure will be financed without increasing the budget according to the majority.

2.5% will be automatically granted to mothers

For single-parent families, there will be an increase in the pension without knowing the amount for the moment. More generally, the reform provided for a 5% retirement bonus per child for one of the two parents. From now on, to favor women, 2.5% will be automatically granted to mothers and the rest will be distributed between the two parents.
