If you are not working or are working part-time, the Family Benefits Fund (Caisse d’allocations familiales/ CAF) can pay contributions towards your retirement pension.

This program has certain eligibility criteria, such as being in receipt of certain family benefits or having cared for a disabled person in your home, and an income ceiling may also apply.

Free membership comes with a pension entitlement from the general social security scheme.

This means that income and quarters will be added to your career history.

These will count toward the amount of your retirement pension but not toward your entitlement to early retirement due to a long career or a disability.
