VERIFICATION – In addition to retiring earlier than the average French person, the agents of the three special regimes would also benefit from particularly high retirement pensions.
Shared on social networks in full mobilization against the pension reform, this small graph published by Jean-François Blay, general manager of Quantalys, has caused a lot of ink to flow. We learn that the retirement pensions of the agents of the three main special schemes – SNCF, electrical and gas industries, RATP – would be on average greater than or equal to 3000 euros gross per month. SNCF retirees dominate this leading group, with 3310 euros gross on average. This is almost as much as the average monthly remuneration received by private sector employees in 2021 (3321 euros gross). It is above all much more than the average pension of private sector retirees, which would be, according to the same document, at 1820 euros gross per month.
In addition to retiring earlier than the average French person, SNCF, IEG and RATP agents would therefore also benefit from a higher pension than employees affiliated to the general scheme. Enough to further fuel the discontent of the 73% of French people in favor of the abolition of special regimes and the determination of the President of the Republic, who has been pleading, since 2017, for the end of these privileges inherited from history. But are these data correct? THE Figaro make the point.
