At least 10 billion euros in social aid would not be claimed each year in France

Housing allowances, RSA, activity bonus… The Mes-allocs platform, which informs and supports Internet users in their procedures, has assessed the percentage of French people not asking for the social aid to which they are entitled. Result: at least ten billion euros in social aid would not be claimed by their beneficiaries in France, exposes “Le Parisien”, in an article published on Tuesday, January 18.

Disabled adult allowance: “To continue to receive it, I was advised to divorce”

The reasons ? An oversight, too cumbersome procedures, a lack of support structure, but more often because of a lack of knowledge of an allowance. This is, for example, the case for the disabled child education allowance (AEEH), which concerns nearly 300,000 parents but whose non-take-up rate is 85%.

To benefit from certain aids, such as the RSA (35% non-recourse) or the activity bonus (53%), the beneficiaries must update their resources every quarter, which can constitute an obstacle. On the contrary, other benefits such as the back-to-school allowance are automatically allocated on the income of year N-2, which partly explains why the non-use of this allowance is only 5%.

Is the back-to-school allowance sufficient to cover the needs of families?

The platform also notes disparities depending on the departments. The rate of non-request for disabled adult allowance is 73% in Ain and Haute-Savoie, while only 39% in Aude or Lozère. These disparities are explained by a different level of equipment in physical support structures in each territory or by a remoteness from digital for certain populations.
