How to anticipate your pension with quota 41 or with the social Ape in 2024
There are two measures that allow you to advance your pension with hard work. Quota 41 has no age limit. You just need to reach 41 years of contributions, of which 35 are actual (without the notional contributions from unemployment and illness). Furthermore, one year of contributions, even intermittently, must be completed before the age of 19. With the Social Ape, however, you must reach 63 years and 5 months of age, and accrue at least 36 years of contributions. The Bee is a bridging income up to 67 years old. Because upon reaching this age the interested parties will have to submit the application for an old-age pension since the pension with the Social Ape expires.
