Its implementation will take place on July 1, according to a series of three decrees published this Sunday in the Official Journal, but how will it work?

Who is he talking to ?

In other words, provided that their PEAC was opened before the age of 13, a young person will therefore be able to recover their savings when they turn 18. Please note that he can do this completely or partially, in which case he will no longer be able to make new payments from the first withdrawal. The PEAC will be automatically closed on the thirtieth birthday of its holder.

What rate of pay?

“The amount of payments into the future climate savings plan has been limited to 22,950 euros since the plan was opened,” it is further clarified. In May 2023, the Minister of Economy and Finance, Bruno Le Maire, affirmed that the remuneration of this new product would be “higher” than that of the Livret A, the rate of which is currently 3%. He will benefit from guaranteed capital and “exceptional tax conditions: zero tax and zero contributions”, Bercy added last month.
