The National pension system (Caisse nationale d'assurance vieillesse) has agreed with the State to reduce its workforce by about 760 positions by 2017 through non-replacement of retirees. The plan was adopted by the CNAVs' board on 4 September. The CNAV will replace 50% of the 1,512 departures in retirement by 2017. The total workforce will decrease from 13300 to 12500 by 2017. For the government the job cuts are part of a plan to reduce social security expenses by about 1.2 billion euro before 2017. Similar job cuts have also been decided in the National health insurance system (Caisse nationale d'assurance maladie-CNAM) (see ERM Factsheet) and the National body in charge of collecting social security contributions (ACOSS) (see ERM Factsheet)
