The inflation bonus is intended to be paid between December 2021 and February 2022. No precise date could be given for technical reasons. Indeed, the payment will have to be ensured by several channels, according to the situation of the beneficiary. Here is the payment schedule envisaged by the government:

  • End of December 2021: this is the date on which employees received their inflation compensation, directly on their payslip. The employer is responsible for the payment, before being compensated by the State in a second time. The self-employed are also affected by this delay (the Urssaf then take care of the payment), as are scholarship students (compensated by the Crous).
  • End of January 2022 : the State proceeds to the payment of the inflation allowance for civil servants, Jobseekers (via Pôle emploi), disabled people, students benefiting from APL and social minima recipients (via the Family Allowance Fund).
  • February 2022 : it is at this deadline that retirees must receive the inflation allowance, via their pension.

The objective of the bonus of 100 euros is to respond to the distress of the most modest households, whose finances are undermined by galloping inflation. Foodstuffs, energy prices… Many goods and services have increased in recent months due to the strong economic recovery following the coronavirus health crisis. Initially, the executive had worked on the establishment of a fuel check, intended for households who own a vehicle, and which have seen the fuel bill explode with the rise in the price of oil. However, this system proved to be very difficult to set up, so much so that the government preferred to abandon it, opting for a broader solution, and allowing households to pay for other expenses than fuel.

The Family Allowance Fund will be responsible for paying the premium of 100 euros in several cases. Linternaute.com summarizes them for you:

  • Students who receive the APL
  • The beneficiaries of the AAH
  • RSA beneficiaries
  • Employees on full-time parental leave
  • Beneficiaries of the shared child-rearing allowance (PreParE)

As a reminder, there is no action to take if you are concerned by your family allowance fund, since the payment will be made automatically from January 20.

Announced by the government in the fall, it is aimed at the middle classes, regardless of their status:

  • Private sector employees
  • Officials
  • Scholarship students and students benefiting from the APL.
  • Retired and elderly people receiving ASPA
  • Freelancers and freelancers
  • Jobseekers
  • Beneficiaries of minimum social benefits (RSA, AAH, etc.)

The bonus of 100 euros is granted on an individual basis. In other words, household composition is not taken into account in determining eligibility for inflation compensation. Thus, a couple can receive up to 200 euros, ie 100 euros each or only 100 euros if only one of the spouses meets the income conditions (see below). In total, 38 million French people will benefit from the inflation check of 100 euros.

But who is affected? To determine eligibility for the inflation bonus, the government has determined a ceiling: are therefore concerned French people who earn less than 2,000 euros net per month – before application of the withholding tax -, regardless of their status and profession.
