Many changes are expected next month. Le Figaro takes stock.

Several important changes for the daily lives of French people and their wallets are expected from April 1.

Le Figaro

takes stock.

Increased social benefits

Social benefits, in particular the RSA, the activity bonus and family allowances, will increase by 1.6% on April 1.

This revaluation was calculated from the average of the monthly inflation rates for one year, i.e. +5.6% compared to April 2022. But the real increase in April 2023 was reduced to +1.6% because the government took into account the exceptional increase of 4% which had been granted “anticipated

in July 2022. The RSA therefore goes from 598.54 euros to 607.15 euros for a person living alone.

On the family allowance side, households will benefit from an increase of 2.24 euros for those who receive less than €71,194 and 55 cents for those who receive incomes above €94,893.

Twitter pushes businesses to pay to stay visible

From Saturday, Twitter will gradually withdraw the certifications it had granted free of charge in recent years to celebrities, political figures or journalists, but also to companies and associations.

These blue checkmarks, present on the profile page, made it possible to fight against identity theft.

The social network, bought in November by Elon Musk, now wants to push companies and institutions to take out a subscription to maintain their certification and those of their employees.

For France, the price is 950 euros per month, to which are added 50 euros per employee to be certified - for example, journalists from an editorial office or the management of a company.
