For back-to-2019, the ARS was assigned by the family allowances Fund (Caf) for each enrolled child born between September 16, 2001 and December 31, 2013 included. In other words, your child must be between the ages of 6 to 18 years. In total, about three million families who receive this assistance, which has cost nearly two billion euros per year to the State from 2014 (see below), is a little less than 700 euros per family.• under what conditions can I touch it?
To reach the ARS (established in 1974), the family income must not exceed a certain ceiling. This year, it was set at 24.697 euros per year for a couple with one dependent child, to 30.396 € if you have two children, 36.095 € for three children and 5699 euros per additional child. Attention: to fix the amount of the aid, the Fca is based on the income of the year 2017. So remember to make sure you have your notice of tax 2018.
in addition, the child must be enrolled in a private or public institution or to take courses via an agency at a distance as the Cned. On the other hand, families who have chosen the instruction at home, will not be able to benefit from the premium back. For students under 18 years of age who are learning, their family may receive the ARS, provided that their remuneration does not exceed 55% of the smic.
• If my resources are slightly above the ceiling, and then I get help?
When the resources of the family slightly exceeds the ceiling, "it is a school return allowance at a reduced rate, degressive in function of his income", according to the ministry of Solidarity and Health. Let's take the example of a family with one child, whose annual income amounted to 25.000 euros. However, in his case, the ceiling is set at 24.697 euros. After deduction of the CRDS, she will receive all the same aid 67,36 € (instead of 368,84 euros planned - see the last question), according to the simulator of the Caisse centrale de la mutualité sociale agricole. The threshold of tolerance, in this case, has been set at 25.052 euros per year. Beyond that, you may not qualify for assistance.• The aid is automatically paid, or should I make the request?
it All depends on your situation. If you have already received the bonus last year and if you still meet the conditions to get it this year, it will be paid automatically. On the other hand, if you have not seen last year and that your child is under 16 years of age, you must complete the declaration of status for family benefits (the document is available on the website of the Fca). You must also attach a statement of resources 2017 as well as a certificate of attendance if your child is between the CP at the start but will not reach its 6 years after December 31, 2019. In contrast, for children, between the ages of 16 to 18 years of age, parents do not need to provide proof of educational attainment to benefit from this support. Only a declaration on the honour ", ensuring that the child is properly enrolled, is sufficient", according to the ministry of Solidarity and Health.• the child's parents are separated. Who receives the bonus?
Your child is between the ages of 6 to 18 years of age and you observe income caps. But you are separated from his father or his mother. The allocation of back-to-school may not be shared between the two parents. The aid will be paid in full at the first of them who will make an application to the Fca. If there is not joint custody, the premium return is granted to the parent with whom the child lives the week. The other parent will not be able to touch the ARS.• What is the amount of the allowance of back-to-school?
the amount of The allowance of the school year differs, depending on the age of your child. The ARS was increased approximately 0.3% compared to last year. It now stands at 368,84 euros for children aged 6 to 10 years, 389,19 euros for 11-14 years and 402,67 euros for 15-18 years. Let's take the example of a family with three children aged 8, 13 and 17 years old. She will receive, in total, assistance of 1160€. Note that, in Mayotte, these amounts are 370,69 euros for the children enrolled in primary school, 391,14 euros for middle and 404,69 euros for the high school.
