Are the outgoing MPs going to bite the bullet on successive unemployment insurance reforms? Two years after being elected, the 577 French deputies were deprived of their mandates following the dissolution of the National Assembly. For some, it’s just a short break before being re-elected. For others, it’s a return to normal life with registration for France Travail. But does it pay to have been an MP?

Once elected, a deputy receives not a salary, but a basic allowance whose net amount is close to 6,000 euros per month. To this must be added “special” allowances linked to the different roles, from 7,698 euros gross for the President of the Assembly to 733 euros gross for office secretaries. And to cover mandate costs, each MP also receives a monthly advance of 5,950 euros, refundable if not used. Finally, deputies can also accumulate local elected compensation, although with a ceiling of 2,964 euros per month.

Advantageous “unemployment insurance”

Have they been penniless since Sunday June 9? No. Already, MPs will continue to receive their basic allowance until the end of July, assures an outgoing MP West France. Then, for those who are not re-elected or who do not stand for re-election, there are different possibilities.

Former deputies who were civil servants will return to the administration in which they worked before being elected. This can also be the case in the private sector, provided that the elected official has only served one mandate. On the other hand, for those who find themselves on the floor, there is a kind of rather advantageous unemployment insurance: “the mutual insurance allowance for the return to employment of deputies. » For a period ranging from 18 to 27 months depending on age, the unemployed MP will receive a gross amount corresponding to 57% of his basic parliamentary allowance, or 4,353 euros per month.

This insurance is only accessible under conditions, according to the information on the National Assembly website. The former MP must have contributed at least six months, be “looking for a job”, not have “reached the age of eligibility for a MP’s pension”, or not have met “the number of quarters of retirement insurance” or not having “reached the age which gives right to a full-rate pension in another plan”.

MPs are also entitled to a retirement, called a “pension”. It is calculated on the basis of a gross amount of 7,637 euros and in proportion to the annuities acquired within the limit of 42 annuities.
