In recent months, with the price increase on supermarket shelves, the coupon has not stopped climbing. So to give some families a boost, the state will pay an exceptional back-to-school bonus. Here’s everything you need to know about this welcome help.
What is the purpose of the exceptional start-up bonus?
While you can buy any good with the exceptional re-entry help, it is mainly used to: fund shopping, as stated by the Minister of Economic Affairs, Bruno Le Maire. This aid costs the French government between 1 and 1.1 billion euros. This allowance is therefore different from the school allowance (intended to finance necessities for your children). So you can combine the two.
Who is concerned?
Originally, the exceptional back-to-school bonus was reserved for workers with the lowest incomes. But in the end it’s more than 10.8 million French women and men who benefits from:
- Recipients of active solidarity income (RSA)
- Disability benefit recipient (AAH)
- Beneficiaries of the specific solidarity benefit (ASS)
- Beneficiaries of the Solidarity Allowance for the Elderly (Aspa)
- Beneficiaries of Personalized Housing Assistance (APL)
- Activity Bonus Beneficiaries
- Scholarship students
How much is this premium?
All households benefiting from the exceptional back-to-school bonus will receive 100 euro, and 50 euros more per dependent child. Please note that those who take advantage of the activity bonus may receive less help. So far, nothing has been clarified.
When is the premium paid?
The exceptional starting bonus will be paid automatically to beneficiaries in September. If you’re concerned about this boost, you don’t need to take any action.
