      The Ministry of National Defence announces that certain articles of the military pension code are being revised in order to allow several categories of former military personnel to have their files submitted to the services of the Ministry of National Defence examined and regularised. It includes the article allowing the extension of the time limits for appeals and the article allowing the creation of a supplementary disability pension for military personnel to whom the medical expertise commission attributes a level of disability related to service.

  • The files of retired military personnel not receiving a disability pension, 171 059 files, of which 5 684 have been accepted to date;
  • The files of military personnel struck off for end of contract and disciplinary measures, 80 739 files, of which 1 200 have been accepted to date;
      Thus, the number of files regularised since January 2021 to date has reached 15 859 files, and the operation is still ongoing.
