On April 14, the members of the Constitutional Council decided to validate the law on pension reform, previously passed into force by the government thanks to article 49.3. Following this decision taken by Laurent Fabius, Alain Juppé and others, the President of the Republic hastened to have the bill promulgated, published overnight in the Official Journal. The shared initiative referendum (RIP) was initially rejected, but will undergo a second examination on Wednesday, May 3, 2023 by the Elders. In the meantime, certain decrees have been transmitted to the Council of State and to the National Pension Fund (Cnav).

Two days after the demonstrations of May Day, marked by numerous scenes of violence and by a large crowd in the streets of many cities in France, the observation remains the same: the French continue to reject the bill aimed at a departure from retirement at age 64. Regarding the text itself, some doubts remain as to the implementation of the reform on September 1, the date targeted by the government. Despite the censorship of some articles of the text, some decrees are essential in order to prepare for the entry into force of the reform next September.

Many things are to be clarified by the government and contributors for the application of the law. As stated by the National Pension Fund (Cnav), the workforce must be expanded and complete in order to also be able to reform the various simulators and other questions that future retirees are asking themselves. Certainly, the main lines of the reform are known by many people, but the small lines deserve the brightest possible clarification. A question still remains intact despite the various declarations of the members of the government as to the implementation of the reform on September 1: will the law be effective for this date?

Find out below which decrees have already been published and if they concern you directly.
