In 2022, the economic activity benefited from the significant rebound already observed in the second half of 2021 when the health crisis ended. Thanks to exceptional revenue dynamics and a decrease in expenses related to the decrease in unemployment rates and the cessation of various emergency measures, the result increased by €10.2 billion between 2021 and 2022.
Closely tied to the macroeconomic context and following a historic decline of 6.7% in 2020, resources continued the recovery trend initiated in 2021 (+10.2%) to grow by 8.1% in 2022.
Expenses accounted for under the Unemployment Benefits (ARE) amounted to €29.5 billion in 2022, compared to €33.6 billion in 2021, representing a 12% decrease, which can be attributed to a decrease in the average number of compensated days (-0.76%).
Expenses accounted for under the ARE Training (ARE-F) amounted to €1.94 billion in 2022, compared to €2.06 billion in 2021, representing a 5.5% decrease.
Expenses related to the Specific Reassignment Allowance (ASR) and the Professional Safeguard Allowance (ASP), excluding the CSP premium, amounted to €808 million in 2022, compared to €1.2 billion in 2021, representing a 34.5% decrease, primarily due to an increase in the number of days paid in CSP (-33.70%) coupled with a decrease in the average daily rate (-3.15%).
After accounting for the Unemployment Insurance contribution to the financing of supplementary retirement benefits for beneficiaries (€2.2 billion in 2022, down from 2021), participation in Pôle emploi's budget (€3.9 billion), and a drastic reduction in the financing of partial unemployment (€195 million in 2022, down from €2.5 billion in 2021), technical management expenses decreased by 13.5% between 2021 and 2022.
The result of technical management is positive at €3.7 billion, an improvement compared to the €6.5 billion deficit in 2021.
After considering the result of administrative management of -€34 million, financial management of -€299 million, exceptional results, and income tax on property rents, the net accounting result for the year is positive at €3.4 billion.
