I lived and worked in Paris between 1973-1976 (working 1973-74 and my husband worked between 1973-1976. I have a Carte de Sejour from that time. Can I claim any pension? I am now 60 years old. My ex husband died in 1990.
Thank you for your question.
I can confirm that you should be able to claim a pension in France provided you made social security contributions for at least one full year. You will need to contact the French pension service (Caisse nationale d’assurance vieillesse) and provide them with your French social security number.
These are their contact details:Basic PensionCaisse nationale d’assurance vieillesse 110 avenue de Flandre F-75951 Paris Cedex 19 http://www.cnav.fr/
In the event you face difficulties in obtaining a pension, I suggest you contact the European Commission's free online assistance service, Your Europe Advice:
