A large number of decrees necessary for the implementation of the controversial pension reform in France were published in the Official Gazette in the summer.
Pension reform went into effect, sparking months of demonstrations in the country, attended by millions.
Starting today, the retirement age will increase by 3 months each year until 2030, gradually increasing from 62 to 64. The lowest pension was 1200 euros per month.
In order to receive the full pension, it will be necessary to have paid a premium for 43 years in 2027.
Those who started working before the age of 21 or disabled citizens will be able to retire earlier.
Mass demonstrations broke out in France on March 16, following the government’s decision to pass the bill, which includes increasing the retirement age from 62 to 64, without voting.
Violence took place in many parts of the country as the police dealt with the protesters harshly.
More than 1,000 people were detained in anti-reform protests across the country.
The Constitutional Council, to which the opposition and the government applied to determine whether the reform was in conformity with the constitution, approved the article of the draft law that increased the retirement age to 64, and rejected the 6 articles in whole or in part.
The aforementioned bill was signed by French President Emmanuel Macron and published in the Official Gazette on April 15.
