What is the "Prime d’activité"?
The "Prime d’activité" is a financial allowance aimed at encouraging people to find work and increasing the buying power of those on a low-income.
It is calculated on a three-monthly basis. How much allowance is paid depends on the financial income of all members of the household.
This allowance replaces the RSA "Activité" and the "Prime pour l'emploi" and is paid by the CAF.
