Emmanuel Macron promised, during the campaign, to wear the Allocation disabled adult (AAH) to 900 euros. It remained to be seen when this amount would be reached. The response was given on Wednesday at the end of the interministerial committee of disability, held at Matignon.
Currently set to 810,89 euros per month, the maximum level of this allowance will be initially revalued in April 2018 under the usual conditions, according to the inflation. And then increased to 860 euros as at 1 November 2018. Before reaching the famous 900 euros in November 2019.A million beneficiaries
note that more than one million people are benefiting from this allowance, granted to those with a disability rate of at least 50 % (in the case of a lower rate of 80 %, a restriction that is substantive and sustainable access to employment is required).
To the touch, it is necessary to have resources below certain limits : your annual income (your resources, when added together, if applicable, those of the person with whom you live) should not for example exceed 9 730,68 euros if you are living alone without dependent children, or 19 461,36 euros if you live in a couple without dependent children. It is a differential allowance : you will hit the maximum amount if you have no income, otherwise it is decreased by the amount of your resources.New calculation for couples
If the campaign promise seems at first sight to be held, the time, however, was not at the party on Wednesday at the Association of the paralyzed of France (APF) after the ads. Because once again, the devil is in the details, and two related measures outlined in the record of the government press suggests that all beneficiaries of the AAH will not take advantage of € 90. Worse, some will lose, according to calculations by the association.
The first bad news for those who live as a couple, or a little less than a quarter of the beneficiaries of the AAH. For them, it takes into account the income of the couple (even unmarried) : you can currently touch the AAH (in a differential way, always), as long as your combined earnings do not exceed two times the maximum amount of the AAH (19 461,36 euros per year, 1 621,78 euros per month). This limit is more favourable than the one applied for the award of the RSA : in order to qualify for the latter, the couple must touch not two times less, but 1.5 times less than the maximum amount of the RSA.
The government says it wants to align the mode of attachment of the ceiling of the resources of couples receiving the AAH on one of the RSA, is less favourable. "The impact of this measure will be offset by the revaluation parallel to the delivery", says he."Scandalous"
"It's wrong", said Véronique Bustreel, of the APF. "At the end of the reform, even with the revaluation of € 90, the income ceiling for the couple would only 1350 euros per month, compared to 1 621,78 euros today", she explains. "With this lowering of the ceiling, most of the beneficiaries of the AAH living as a couple will lose their AAH. They will lose a maximum of 272 euros per month, including taking into account of the revaluation."
"If the calculation of the ceiling for the AAH is more favorable than that of the other minimum wage, it is not for nothing, it is because of the heavy financial burdens which weigh daily on the people in situation of handicap. The goal is that they are neither dependent on, nor at the expense of their spouse. With this measurement, it prohibits them from living in a couple, or then only with a person very poor ! This is outrageous."
The TCA, like other associations, demanded a disconnect between the AAH and the income of the partner, or, at least, an increase in the resource limit for couples. The government has decided to go in the opposite direction.A race to the bottom ?
the Other announcement that made gnash the teeth : it is planned to merge the two additions to the AAH that exist today and which have the purpose to compensate for the lack of professional incomes of persons in situation of disability and accessing the self (so that housing costs). The announced goal is to simplify and clarify the devices. The worry is that these two aids, non-cumulative, are not of the same amount. The "additional resources" amounted to 179,31 € per month, compared to 104,77 euros for the "increase independent living".

"the reading of the press folder, we understand that it is deleting the first for the benefit of the second, so keep the lesser of the amount", says Véronique Bustreel. "Has the key : a loss of eur 75 per month for the 65 000 people concerned. For the latter, a large part of the revaluation of € 90 would be absorbed, the gain will not be more than 15 euros per month to run. It is disgusting, especially as it affects the people most severely disabled, those who may not have a professional income."
