What is CSG and Who is Concerned?

The Generalized Social Contribution (CSG) is a tax levied to finance social protection in , affecting in particular pensions, , and family allowances. Usually all pensions are subject to this tax, but in 2024 a major change will exempt retirees with incomes below certain thresholds.

Exemption Conditions

To be exempt from CSG in 2024, the reference tax income thresholds have been adjusted: they are now 12,230 euros for a single person and 18,760 euros for a couple. This adaptation reflects a desire to economically support pensioners most weakened by the current economic situation.

Impact of Exemptions on Retirees

The effects of this exemption are far from negligible. For the lowest-income retirees, this means a net increase in their disposable income, enabling them to better meet essential daily expenses. This is a valuable help in an economic climate where even the smallest savings are important.

Reduced CSG for Other Tranches

For those who slightly exceed the exemption thresholds, a reduced CSG rate is applied. This measure concerns, for example, single people whose tax income is between 12,231 and 24,812 euros. Although this burden is reduced, it raises questions of fairness and effectiveness of the adjusted tax levels.

Other Contributions and Dues

Even exempt from CSG, retirees must often continue to pay other contributions, such as the health contribution on pensions from supplementary plans. This reality highlights the complexity of the tax system and the challenges faced by retirees, especially in certain regions with specific health insurance contributions.

Towards a More Equitable Policy?

The reform of the CSG exemption thresholds encourages broader reflection on the need to rebalance pension levies. The ideal would be to achieve a fair contribution to the common good while preserving the purchasing power of seniors, particularly in a demographic context marked by an increased aging of the population.
