Who can benefit ?

The first inflation , also called 'exceptional solidarity aid' by the government or 'return bonus', was designed to help nearly 11 million households. This exceptional allowance was voted within the framework of the purchasing power law in 2022, to help the French to cope with high inflation (+5.8% in June 2022 over one year). In principle, this year it can also be combined with the back-to-school allowance if eligible for both. 'It is aimed at beneficiaries of social minima such as the active solidarity income (RSA), the allowance for disabled adults ( AAH ) or the solidarity allowance for the elderly (Aspa), for housing benefit recipients (APL, ALF, ALS)' , indicates the public service website in 2022.

What was the amount of the exceptional solidarity aid?

The amount of this new state aid has been set at 100 euros, to which is added an additional 50 euros per dependent child. The amount allocated by CAF is itself superior. 'In total, the average amount paid by the Caisses d' Family allowances is €133.5 ', CAF said in a statement. It should be noted that the reference tax income is not taken into consideration for its allocation. In concrete terms, a family made up of two adults and three children received 250 euros (the two adults constituting the reference household of 100 euros, plus the 150 euros for the three children). Payment is made to the bank accounts of the households concerned.

How to obtain exceptional solidarity assistance?

The steps to benefit from the exceptional solidarity aid are relatively simple. As specified by site from the government, the beneficiaries will collect the payment 'automatically by the organization on which your social minima depend, without any action on your part. For example, if you receive the RSA or the APL, the payment will be made by your family allowance fund. If you are applying for employment, it is Pôle Emploi that will pay you the bonus.' The payment is made directly to the bank accounts of the people concerned by the inflation bonus.
