Since Tuesday 5 February, the activity bonus has been paid on the accounts of the recipients. And the new social benefit formula takes effect on 1 January 2019: a higher amount and a higher number of beneficiaries. At least, that's what the president announced last December. An incentive for employees with the lowest incomes. The Runion, the Family Allowances Fund, has validated 6,571 activity bonus applications for January 2019.
The first payment of the extra activity with bonus started on Tuesday, February 5, some recipients were surprised because, unlike Emmanuel Macron, the social advantage did not make a jump of 100 euros. It is calculated on the basis of the income, the family situation and the benefits of each applicant. The quantity therefore varies according to these three criteria.

The Runion received in December 2018 58,000 homes the bonus activity.
In January 2019, the CAF validated 6,571 applications for activity bonuses. In January 2018, 578 applications were registered by the Family Allowances Fund. The number of requests has been multiplied by 11.
The measure announced by the President has therefore entered into force. The National Family Allowance Fund estimated that this extended activity bonus would include 20,000 additional La Runion households. It is clear that we are still far away from the account. CAF 974 relied on 8,000 eligible people for the extended business bonus in the US.
