However, it is common for quarters to be missing when the end of your working life comes to an end. In the event of errors in your trimesters, what recourse do you have? Can you recover forgotten trimesters?
It is essential to calculate your quarters as soon as possible in order to avoid unpleasant surprises. Indeed, more than one French person in 7 discovers, at the time of retirement, that quarters have been forgotten on their career statement. Unfortunate disappointments which are not without consequence on the total amount of their retirement. To remedy this situation, we advise you, from the age of 55, to take stock of the rights you have acquired for your retirement.
