Pension reform: the main special schemes abolished


The Prime Minister unveiled her pension reform project this Tuesday at the end of the afternoon. Here's what to remember from the announcements of

At 5:30 p.m., Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne revealed to the press the government's pension reform project.

First key measure: the legal retirement age will drop to 64 from 2030, instead of 62 at present – ​​the initial track of 65 having been abandoned.

The extension of the contribution period, already launched by the Touraine law of 2014, will be accelerated: the transition to 43 years will take place in 2027 on the occasion of the end of Emmanuel Macron's mandate.

“We have to look reality in the face,” hammered the Matignon tenant during her press conference.

As promised, the government also wants to put an end to a good part of the special regimes on the altar of “justice and progress”, according to the former Minister of Labour.

"The pension system maintains the feeling of injustice with the maintenance of special regimes which are no longer justified by the reality of the professions exercised", underlines the Prime Minister's bill.

The reform will therefore mark the extinction of the main special pension schemes.

For example, new hires at RATP, EDF or the Banque de France will henceforth be affiliated to the general pension scheme as of September 1, 2023. Employees already in office will keep their pension scheme.

This is called the "grandfather clause", already mentioned at the time of the closure of the special SNCF regime in 2018.

The gradual two-year shift in the legal retirement age and the acceleration of the Touraine reform will apply to current employees of special schemes, but taking into account their specificities.

The autonomous regimes (liberal professions and lawyers) but also those very specific to sailors, the Paris Opera or the Comédie Française will not be affected by the closure.

End of career possible from age 62 in the public service

For the civil service, progressive retirement will be extended to allow end-of-career adjustments from age 62.

The bill also enacts the creation for civil servants of a fund for the prevention of professional wear and tear for hospitals in particular.

In the process, still on Tuesday, the intersyndicale, made up of the eight main French unions (CFDT, CGT, FO, CFE-CGC, CFTC, Unsa, Solidaires, FSU) and five youth organizations, will meet at 7:30 p.m. at the Bourse work in Paris, probably to announce a mobilization date.

And to conclude this exceptional day on the pension front, this Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. in the France 2 television news, Élisabeth Borne will defend her reform.
