The concept of the experiment will be the automatic payment of certain social aid from the beginning of 2023. We can therefore see the results after two years. This initiative announced by the Minister responsible Autonomy and People with Disabilities is therefore a major reform.

Moreover, the situation, being a government promise, turns out to be a challenge for this former director of the Red Cross.

What income is affected and who is responsible?

It should be noted that approximately 30% of people who receive social assistance do not make a claim. A situation that we can qualify as “abnormal”. Hence the implementation of the payment alternative automatique .

These three incomes are paid by the CAF or the family allowance funds. Their scope goes as far as the recovery of social assistance from approximately 20 million French people, i.e. 90% of recipients . It is therefore obvious that for the moment, the AAH or the Disabled Adult Allowance does not come into play.

In addition, note that this reform aims to cover the payment of 15 to 20 hours of work per week, in different departments.

Social assistance, why automatic payment?

The goal of the alternative “solidarity to the resource” is to pay social assistance without going through ambiguous procedures and laborious tasks.

The automatic payment of social assistance also makes it possible to fight against fraud . In addition, industrial costs resulting from calculation errors will thus be minimized and the system more secure.

It should be noted that the implementation of the alternative will be done gradually, from territory to territory. territory . Its application is indeed complex. It is first necessary to harmonize the resources then to recover the various data of the administrations and the employers.
