According to the minister, all pensions will be “revalued by 5.2% on 1er January 2024.” An increase slightly above that of inflation, which stood at 4.9% over one year in August. This is the first increase in retirement pensions since 1er January 2023. They had been increased by 0.8 points. Furthermore, social minimums will be “revalued at 1er April of around 4.6%,” adds Bruno Le Maire. This will therefore concern the active solidarity income (RSA), the minimum old age or the allowance for disabled adults (AAH).
