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::
