Pensions paid out by old-age insurance, previously indexed for inflation, will increase by only 0.3% in 2019 and in 2020 when the increase is expected to reach 1.3%.

French pensioners have taken to the streets to protest against the government's budget choices and a new increase in the generalized social contribution (CSG).
