ANPE is on my list now too…

The ANPE is half of the unemployment services here in France. The ASSEDIC is the actual agency that gives you the unemployment benefits (unless you worked for the rectorat), while ANPE helps you with finding a job. When you sign up for unemployment, you have a mandatory meeting at ASSEDIC and a mandatory meeting at ANPE. I did both of those back in June. If you still haven’t found a job within 3 months, you are supposed to have another mandatory meeting with ANPE.

Well, I have found a job so I e-mailed my conseillère at the ANPE to tell her, and I sent a letter to ANPE (both back in August) so that my mandatory meeting in September would be cancelled.

Guess what happened? I just received a letter from ANPE saying that I missed my mandatory meeting and will be taken off unemployment within 15 days if I don’t reschedule. It also says to let them know if I have found a job… WHICH I ALREADY HAVE TWICE!!!

Needless to say, I am annoyed. And worried that I won’t be able to pay October’s rent if I can’t receive September’s benefits. ::sigh::

    This letter is automatically sent, I’m sure it’s bad computer design or something…
    Don’t worry about anything, it’s not as if the ANPE had any use or power at all…

    eep. i feel your pain. But also, i am awful in comparison. Due to the fault of the assedic, I couldnt sign up until august and so as a result, I still havent received any unemployment benefit for july and august.

    as for september…will you get anything?? I doubt I will as my lectrice contract starts on the 1st sept even though i start on the 22nd. How are you going to declare for september? Or do you start your lectrice job in October?

    @Emmy: My lectrice contract starts October 1st, so I should be able to receive unemployment for all of September too. I’m just worried if they take me off the list right now, I won’t get anything. Luckily I should still get August’s benefits at the end of September, and my regular lectrice pay at the end of October so I can pay bills even if ANPE screws me over…

    @David: LOL I agree that ANPE is useless.

    Welcome to France!

    I escaped before I got a chance to meet them but I heard many many stories from my parents and my friends.
