Stars also have the right to retire! A significant number of them have already done so. This is the case of the author-composer and performer Antoine, who recently spoke in the press on this subject, reports Pleine Vie on its site. But he is not the only one ! Geneviève de Fontenay, for example, also decided to end her professional career after years spent chairing the Miss France committee. For these people, there are different types of retirement plan, such as that provided for artist-authors, observes the specialized site La Retraite en Clair. It remains to be seen whether such a career path pays off, once you stop working? More information on this subject in our slideshow at the conclusion of this article.

Generally speaking, the basic pension for artist-authors concerns all creators of original works, “whether graphic, plastic, musical, audiovisual, literary (including translators), photographic, etc.” can we read on the specialized platform.

Artist-authors are attached to the general basic pension scheme, but two dedicated organizations manage their affiliations. These are La Maison des Artistes and Agessa. However, the contribution method is quite similar to that of employees, except that there are different tax statuses depending on the type of income received (copyrights, for example).

Naturally, not all stars fall into this category. Among the retirees who once enjoyed incomparable notoriety are, in fact, presenters… and political representatives. Both have benefited from high salaries, which generally provide them with a more than adequate pension. Summary in images below.
