According to INSEE, consumer prices are increasing by 6.2% year on year in February 2023. For these reasons, exceptional checks have been distributed to help the French people manage their bills.
Among these checks, we find the exceptional energy check as well as the wood check, for households heating with wood and the fuel oil check, for heating with fuel oil. They can be used and combined with the classic energy check. However, the fuel check is not sent automatically. It is necessary to submit a request on the portal provided by the Ministry of Energy Transition to benefit from it. You can make this request until April 2023.
The Family Allowance Fund (CAF) also announces the distribution of an exceptional check. Indeed, from April 8, 2023, aid of 308 euros will be distributed. In addition to the APL paid on April 5, an exceptional bonus of precisely 308.50 euros is available. Indeed, to benefit from it, it is possible to go to their simulation section.
To obtain this exceptional bonus, it is necessary to make a written request. Indeed, simulation is not equivalent to a real demand. You must also live on French soil for at least eight months out of the twelve of the year. You must also be of French nationality or in possession of a right of residence on French soil. You should also not be affected by wealth tax.
If you meet all these conditions, you are normally eligible for the exceptional bonus. To benefit from it, it is necessary to make your request before April 5 to receive it from April 8, 2023.
