Fuel check: an “inflation allowance” for gasoline, but not … – Linternaute.com


Oct 22, 2021

FUEL CHECK. Guest of the 20 Hours of TF1 news on Thursday evening, Prime Minister Jean Castex unveiled the government’s response to the rise in the price of gasoline. It will be aid in the form of “inflation compensation”. Who will it be for, for what amount? Here is the first official info.

[Mis à jour le 21 octobre 2021 à 22h44] Thunderclap! While observers bet on two main options, namely a check gasoline or a reduction in taxes on the part of the government, to remedy the increase in fuel prices, Jean Castex finally announced Thursday, October 21, on the set of the 20 Hours of TF1, an “inflation allowance”. In short: motorists will not ultimately be the only ones to benefit from assistance. All French people, who “earn less than 2,000 euros net per month”, or nearly 38 million people, will receive individual aid of 100 euros. Thus, whether you have a car or not, whether you are an employee, self-employed worker, but also job seeker, beneficiary of social minima or allowance such as that for disabled adults, or whether you are part of the 13 million retirees whose pension is less than 2,000 euros net per month, you should be concerned.

And good news, there will be no steps to take! The payment of this “inflation allowance” will be automatic. Be careful though, not everyone will receive it at the same time, nor from one and the same organization. The companies will take care of paying it to employees, via the payroll for the month of December. For civil servants, it will be necessary to wait until January and the State will take care of it directly, reports Capital, which echoes the details of Matignon Thursday evening, during an exchange with the press. “For the farmers by the MSA, for the independents by the Urssaf”, announced a little earlier Jean Castex. Note that the self-employed, the unemployed, for whom Pôle Emploi will take care of the payment, still according to Capital, and retirees (pension funds) will receive their allowance “a little later”, the Prime Minister said. What about apprentices? According to Capital, the latter, as soon as they are employees, will be entitled to “inflation compensation”. The same will be the case for students over the age of 18 who receive social assistance.

It was obviously the heart of Jean Castex’s intervention at the 20 Hours of TF1 this Thursday evening. What would be the conditions and counterparts for the government’s boost in the face of rising fuel prices? It will therefore be a condition of income: “The French who earn less than 2,000 euros per month”, or about 38 million French people concerned.

During an exchange with the press, shortly after the interview with Jean Castex, Thursday, October 21, Matignon provided some details on the profile of the people who will be concerned. According to Capital, it was indicated that in addition to employees, public officials, the self-employed and retirees who earn less than 2,000 euros net per month, already mentioned by the Prime Minister, job seekers, but also apprentices who are employees and students over 18 receiving social assistance will also receive the “inflation allowance”. People who receive social minima or allowances such as that for disabled adults will also be entitled to it.

The payment terms of the check fuel should be specified very soon, undoubtedly in the wake of Jean Castex’s speech to the 8 pm newscast on TF1 this Thursday, October 21. The Prime Minister gave some details but also delayed, evoking a payment deadline for “end of December 2021” for employees, in “January 2022” for civil servants and undoubtedly “a little later” for retirees . Jean Castex assured to want to ensure that this compensation arrives as quickly as possible, but admitted that details had yet to be made to the device. As a reminder, and by way of comparison, the government announced in September a bonus for beneficiaries of the energy check in order to help them pay their heating bills, but the payment will not take place until December.

It will therefore be in the form of an amount of 100 euros, paid individually to each French person earning less than 2,000 euros net per month. This sum will be paid in several ways, in particular directly via companies for employees. Matignon specified, after the interview with Jean Castex, Thursday, October 21, which will be the different organizations in charge of its payment according to the profile of the beneficiaries. Thus, in addition to the employees who will receive it via their pay for the month of December, it will be paid by the Urssaf for the self-employed, the pension funds for the retirees, the employment center for the unemployed or the State for the agents of the public service.

The device devised by the government is ultimately not close to that already implemented in the Hauts-de-France region since 2016. In this region, assistance of 20 euros per month is paid to employees under certain conditions. This is officially the “transport assistance” device, the criteria of which are specified on the region’s website. In addition to being domiciled in the Hauts-de-France region, you must also:

  • Travel in a private vehicle or a motorized two-wheeler for the majority of his trips between home and place of work,
  • Be an employee via a CDI or a CDD of at least one month. Temporary workers can also apply if they combine several contracts over a month,
  • The workplace must be at least 20 kilometers from home,
  • Be domiciled in a sector poorly served by public transport or certify staggered schedules that do not allow you to use them. Night work is particularly targeted as well as positions requiring a start of the day before 7 a.m. and / or an end of work after 10 p.m.

To verify their eligibility, residents of Hauts-de-France can carry out a simulation and submit their file on the region’s website, via a dedicated “Transport assistance” page. 48,000 beneficiaries were identified by the region in 2020.

Another local authority had set up a financial assistance system for fuel, the Nice metropolis, in 2018. The criteria were slightly different from those of Hauts-de-France: 10 kilometers between home and place of work, and be more than 500 meters from a tram station. 23,000 people had benefited from this assistance of 60 euros per quarter. However, the system ended in 2020, the metropolis having focused on supporting other forms of mobility such as a bonus for the purchase of an electric vehicle or a bicycle.
