The government had undertaken to increase the amount of retirement pensions this summer. In the end, the mission proved to be more complex to fulfill than expected… so much so that it was necessary to officially give up any increase in August. Pensioners unfortunately noticed this on Tuesday August 9, 2022, when their July pension was finally paid to them, as Planet has already explained.

The revaluation of retirement pensions will not occur before next month, summarizes the Journal du Net on its site. It will be effective “from the payment of the pension for the month of August, paid on September 9”, thus specified the Pension Insurance on its site. In addition, this delay will not result in a loss of income for the French and the French: “The amount corresponding to the revaluation on the retirement of the month of July will be paid retroactively with the payment of September 9”, continues the official platform.

First of all, it should be remembered that the promised increase only concerns retirement pensions from the general scheme. All in all, Elisabeth Borne recently recalled, retirees will be able to benefit from a “5% increase over the year”, she argued.
