This is the amount represented each year by unclaimed social benefits from the Family Allowance Fund (CAF).
To remedy the lack of recourse, a veritable sea serpent of social policies, the government is preparing to set up a simplified application system for the active solidarity income (RSA), the activity bonus and assistance personalized accommodation (APL).
These three services concern 90% of recipients, i.e. nearly 20 million French people.

These experiments having proved conclusive, the government decided to extend the “
