In reality, there is no minimum pension in the pension reform, but a revaluation between 0 and 100 euros.

To upgrade pensions, the executive has a tool, the contributory minimum (Mico), allowing retirees who have contributed small amounts to receive a minimum basic pension amount. It is this Mico that the government wishes to increase. Today capped at 747 euros, it could increase to 847 euros thanks to the reform. However, even with a potential supplementary pension, it is impossible to say that the minimum amount of 1,200 euros will be reached for everyone. The services of the Ministry of Labor "estimate, depending on the generation, that between 10,000 and 20,000 will cross the threshold of 1,200 euros gross by this single measure" wrote the Minister of Labor Olivir Dussopt, in a letter addressed to the Socialist deputy Jérôme Guedj, Wednesday March 1, 2023.


The overall retirement pension for civil servants consists mainly of the basic pension. A supplementary scheme, the "additional public service pension (RAFP)" also exists, but is not affected by the 0.8% revaluation of retirement pensions. The regime, however, upgraded its point by 5.7% on January 1, 2023.

Former state civil servants, who fall under the SRE, therefore saw their basic pension increase by 0.8% and their supplementary pension by 5.7% on 1 January 2023.
