The retirement period is, contrary to what one might think, not easy. Before you can leave your professional activity, it is, first of all, essential to take the necessary steps. For this, an application file must be submitted while the pension reform has reshuffled the departure card. Indeed, future retirees will, in the majority of cases, experience the consequences of the pension reform and the increase in the legal retirement age, as well as the increase in the insurance period. In this context, however, there are still certain aids, including free ones, from which you can benefit. We take stock for you.

A pivotal stage in life, which marks the end of a professional career, retirement must be approached with caution and in sufficient time to become comfortable. Several types of assistance can be provided to you during this period depending on your situation. Thus, it is possible to receive, when you live alone, the Solidarity Allowance for the Elderly (Aspa), which requires resources of less than or equal to 1,012.02 euros (gross) per month. However, you will have to wait until you are 65 to benefit from it.

A simple allowance may also be granted to you if you do not have a retirement pension and your Aspa application has been refused. Here again, a minimum age of 65 is required, as are resources less than or equal to 1,012.02 euros (gross) per month. At the same time, there is the Supplementary Disability Allowance (Asi), for resources less than or equal to 899.56 euros per month and recognition of disability of at least ⅔.

Along the same lines, Agirc-Arrco, which is responsible for your supplementary pension, has chosen to set up a system to get elderly people out of isolation. While the loss of autonomy is an important issue, the aim here is to provide specific support for the most vulnerable.

Thanks to the “Sortir Plus” system, retirees aged 75 and over, who encounter mobility problems, can therefore obtain support for their daily outings, whether they take place on foot or by car. All daily tasks, from shopping to family visits to walks, are part of the process that was created by Agirc-Arrco.

Launched in 2021, the “Sortir Plus” system became completely free in 2023 within the limit of an annual ceiling set by the organization. To benefit from it, you can contact an advisor by telephone or online, who will directly assess your situation. He will then be able to offer you assistance tailored to your wishes.

Your outings can, through this intermediary, be planned at least two days in advance by telephone or online. It is possible to reach an advisor by telephone from Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., on 0 971 090 971. Directly online, you can connect to
