The modification of the daily reference wage (SJR) - which serves as the basis for the calculation of the return-to-work allowance (ARE) paid to compensated job seekers - will allow a gain of 1 billion, when the hardening of conditions membership of 4 to 6 months will save 800 million to the scheme and the degression of allowances for the highest incomes, 460 million.

As for 2021, only the modification of the calculation of the RLS will make it possible to reduce expenses.
And this up to 210 million.
For 2022, depending on the evolution of the economy and whether or not the job market returns to “good fortune”, Unedic plans between 1.2 and 1.9 billion euros in savings.
Besides, changing the rules will not be painless for the unemployed.
With the new method of calculating the SJR, around 1.15 million beneficiaries will open a right with a lower allowance of 17% on average.
In addition, with the change to a minimum of 6 months of membership, 190,000 unemployed people should not be able to obtain rights during the first 12 months following the entry into force of the measure.
