CIO. To begin with, can you tell us about the role of the CNAV within the social sphere and its main missions?

Veronique Puche. The National Old Age Insurance Fund (Cnav) is a public body governed by private law. It manages the pension insurance network, which corresponds to the pension branch of the general social security system. This network includes 15 pension and occupational health insurance funds (Carsat), 4 general social security funds (CGSS) overseas and a social security fund in Mayotte. The Cnav covers employees, but also the self-employed since the end of the RSI.

Pension insurance has about 21 million contributors and covers nearly 15 million retirees. In 2020, it paid 132.6 billion in benefits.

In 2020, the site exceeded 70 million visitors and 430,000 online pension requests were recorded in 2021.
