Two first decrees implementing the pension reform were published Sunday in the Official Journal, including the one gradually raising the legal age from 62 to 64 years, the most controversial measure of the text.
The published decrees set out the modalities of application of Articles 10, 11 and 17 of the law on the amending financing of social security for 2023 "relating, on the one hand, to the gradual increase in the age of entitlement to retirement rights from 62 to 64 years and to the acceleration of the rate of increase in the insurance period required for the full rate, and, on the other hand, early departures, particularly with regard to long careers and disability, "says the government in a statement.
In particular, the provisions relating to the "active categories" of the civil service (firefighters, police officers, air traffic controllers, etc.), who will still be able to leave before the age of 64 but whose legal age of departure will also be raised, and to early departures for people who started working early and contributed the required 43 years.

For long careers, the device "now provides four age limits of entry into the device (16 years, 18 years, 20 years and 21 years), by allowing early retirement according to four terminals of opening pension rights (respectively 58 years, 60 years, 62 years and 63 years)," says the press release.
These two decrees are the first of 31 implementing texts that must be published before 1 September for the reform to be implemented on time. "From July, there will be pensions that will be calculated according to the new rules," said May 31 the director general of the National Old-Age Insurance Fund (Cnav), Renaud Villard.
The publication of these decrees also comes two days before the 14th day of action against the pension reform on Tuesday, at the call of the inter-union, for which the postponement of the legal age to 64 years is the main red line.
The National Assembly is also due to consider a bill on 8 June repealing the reform, at the initiative of the independent group Liot. The text was emptied of its substance in committee, but will give rise to new passes of arms during its examination in session.
