Revenu minimum d'insertion

The Revenu minimum d'insertion (RMI) is a French form of Michel Rocard (Socialist Party) and aimed at helping people who had the most problems with finding work.

Eligibility for RMI

The recipient of RMI must fulfill the following conditions:

  • be older than 25 or have children;
  • must commit to finding work within 3 months of the first payment of benefit;
  • live in France and, for non-EU nationals, have proof of having lived there for a minimum of five years;
  • not be a pupil, student, or in work experience;
  • not be married, in a civil union or a domestic partnership with someone who does not him/herself fulfill those conditions.

Evolution of RMI

According to an INSEE 2001 study, a quarter of the RMI beneficents had an employ or a remunerated "stage." During the 21 months preceding the study, half of the beneficents passed through a period of employment, generally part-time, and a quarter only CDI (Indeterminate Length Contract). The medium wage of these active people was of 610 Euros (after paying taxes).[1]

In 1994, in metropolitan France, the number of claimants of RMI was 783,436; ten years later (in June 2004), it had increased to 1,041,026. In the DOM, it was 105,033 in 1994, and 152,892 in June 2004.[2] By 31 December 2005, the figure stood at 1,112,400.[3] From December 2004 to December 2005, the number of RMI claimants increased by 4,7% according to the Secours catholique NGO[4]

In 2004, the government of Jean-Pierre Raffarin created the Revenu minimum d'activité (RMA) which is designed to replace the RMI. The RMA enforces much more strictly the obligations of claimants to find work.
