the different scenarios proposed by a report

The government is tackling the thorny issue of the survivor’s pension as part of the pension reform. A report released Thursday, February 13, thus recommends several avenues and considers the original option of “sharing pension rights between spouses”. Faced with the outcry caused by the change in the reversionary rules, the government had asked Bertrand Fragonard, president of the High Council for the Family, Childhood and Age, and Anne-Marie Leroyer, professor at the School of right of the Sorbonne, “to think about how to take into account divorced ex-spouses in order to protect women in particular”.

The report draws up a detailed inventory for each conjugal situation. On the most debated question, the case of a divorced couple whose spouse remarried and died, leaving a widow and a divorced woman, he examines the different options. Among them, the current option of maintaining the division of the survivor’s pension between the widow and the divorced wife in proportion to the respective durations of their marriage. Other proposals: that of the former High Commissioner for Pensions, Jean-Paul Delevoye, who wanted the abolition of this partition or the opening of two reversionary rights, one for the widow, the other for the divorced person .

68,000 people concerned

The widow would receive the full survivor’s pension to maintain her standard of living, and the divorced person would receive an independent benefit as a “resale right” from their marriage, which could be calculated in proportion to their duration. wedding. The sum of the two pensions could exceed the amount of the retirement of the deceased, notes the report, but “the current modest number of staff puts the additional cost into perspective […] and would only partially heal the downward trend in survivors’ pensions. “
