3.8 million people receive in France a reversion pension from their deceased spouse ($4.4 million in cash to non-residents). At 88%, are women. Among these people, with 600,000 only perceive this pension so-called "derivative rights". The average amount is of 642 euros for the widows and 304 euros for widowers. The annual cost of the reversion is now approximately € 30 billion, or 10% of the total expenditure of the pension.read also : senior managers are expected to be the biggest losers of the pension reform
today, the rules of survivor are very different from one regime to the other : the age at which one can touch the reversion differs from a regime to another between 50 years and 65 years and there is no minimum age in the public service. The resource conditions are not the same : if the resources of the surviving spouse exceed 20.550 € per year, the reversion CNAV is not granted, for example, while the reversion of the supplementary pension yes, and that public officials do not have criteria of resources. In addition, the percentage of the pension of the deceased paid also varies between 50% and 60%.rules become the same for all
We can see here that the iniquity is to rule, and that two people in an identical situation of widowhood will not have the same amount of survivor's pensions if they have worked in the private or in the public for example. The amount of the reversion to the public being much more generous.
In the new system, the rules of reversion will be the same for all. The reversion will be accessible from age 55, provided you have been married at least 2 years and shall not be subject to any condition of resources. The device chosen will guarantee the widowers maintain their standard of living (including income from pensions and labour income) up to a percentage of the pension of the couple, which will be set at 70% by decree.

According to the simulations conducted for the impact study, the projected expenditure of reversion should be pretty much identical until 2048 before declining relative to the expected expense in the current system of 2 billion people by 2050.
Then what about this new method of calculation of the reversion ? The objective of simplification is welcome : in fact, it was somewhat understandable that the widow has not the same impact according to the pension plan. The reversion will therefore be a universal right and not a right depending on the status and this evolution was necessary. The percentage of 70% guaranteed income prior to the couple - if it is not calculated in a way too restrictive - is also good news.
