With the high temperatures that are present in France, many families would like to go on vacation. Unfortunately for many families, departure is not possible due to a lack of budget. Moreover, the inflation that has been raging in France for several months already makes this departure even more unattainable. Fortunately, the Caf offers help for families with low income so that they can still enjoy some vacation. We’ll explaine everything here.
Benefit from the help of the Caf
This aid has been distributed by Caf for three years now. Moreover, according to the figures, it is more than 100,000 people who can benefit from it. Unfortunately, with the health crisis, the past two years have of course not counted. But if we take into account all the members of a family, we can easily succeed in obtaining close to 450,000 beneficiaries just for the year 2019. On average, families received 444 euros and 212 euros for children. In addition, the formalities for accessing this aid have been streamlined so as to encourage beneficiaries to take advantage of it.
To be eligible for this aid from the Caf, you must still correspond to the right profile. To do this, you must have children born between 2005 and the end of October 2021. Also, the family quotient must be less than or equal to the sum of 700 euros. If these conditions seem to be met, in this case the Caf must automatically send you a message on this subject. In the latter it must be registered that you can benefit from the offer as well as the amount that it seems possible to receive. You then only haveto choose where you want to go on vacation as well as the nature of these. On the other hand, it should be kept in mind that the Caf only finances holidays in France, and no abroad.
Risk of scam
Indeed, there are more and more scams, especially when it concerns sums. In particular, we have where to see carte vitale scams and other official documents. It is therefore natural to ask the question about scams with CAF as a method. So, as mentioned above, it is the CAF that must send you a message. But on the application of the CAF you have a voicemail. So if you receive a suspicious message by email with a link do not click. If it’s really CAF, you can find the message in your messaging app or website. The rule of never clicking on links works in all cases. If you have any doubt, contact the alleged sender directly.
So, if you have the slightest doubt about a message from the Caf, you can very well call it. Indeed, it is possible to join the Caf on weekdays depending on their availability, so do not hesitate to contact them to check the veracity of the message you have received. And do not take risks, because the goal of these scams is most of the time to steal your personal data. Indeed, with this, hackers can successfully empty your bank accounts. And given the current economic context, this is not the time.
