Unemployment: possible drop in benefits


The Court of Auditors suggests lowering unemployment benefits due to the regime's astronomical debt. "The regime's bank indebtedness went from 5,3 billion euros in 2008 to 21,5 billion in 2014", we can read in the institution's report, published yesterday. According to estimates by Unédic, which manages the plan, the debt should stand at 25,9 billion at the end of 2015 and reach 35 billion in 2018. The Court indicates that this insurance scheme is facing to "a worrying imbalance". And shows that it is advantageous. “France is one of the countries whose unemployment insurance scheme covers the largest number of unemployed people with acquired eligibility after four months of work, which is the shortest duration of the OECD countries. The maximum duration of compensation is also one of the highest, ”underlines the report, available on the Unédic website.
