In an exclusive interview granted to the newspaper “Le Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France” this Friday, Elisabeth Borne reveals the first measures of the pension reform wanted by the government. Legal retirement age, “long career” system, end of special schemes… Europe 1 gives you the main measures.

Pensions, the great challenge of the government. Elisabeth Borne will unveil her pension reform on December 15, but before she draws up the first measures in an exclusive interview with the newspaper Le Parisien-Today in France this Friday. One thing is certain, the government wants to act very quickly.

The reform will come into force in the summer of 2023

The reform, which will come into force in the summer of 2023, will concern people born after July 1961. The legal retirement age retirement will be gradually pushed back from 62 to 65 by 2031. But for now, there is no question of deciding since consultations have just resumed with the social partners. For the rest, the Prime Minister does not wish to increase the age of cancellation of the discount which will remain at 67 years. She also wants to maintain and even relax the “long career” system which allows you to leave at least two years before the legal age when you start working before 20 years old.

Take into account periods of parental leave

Elisabeth Borne also announces that she wants to take into account periods of parental leave when calculating the contribution period. As for the question of the employment of seniors, no sanction is planned for companies that separate themselves from assets over 55 years old. On the other hand, they will have to publish figures on the training and recruitment of these workers. The Prime Minister also announces a minimum pension increased to 1,200 euros for a full career and the end of special schemes for new hires, in particular in the electricity and gas industry and at the SNCF.
