Existing aids for parents of sick children

<Parental leave of absence… strong.
When you have to take care of a dependent child who is seriously ill, disabled or injured. This leave entitles you to a "lump sum" of 310 days up to a maximum of 3 years, renewable in the event of a relapse of the child. This leave is unpaid, but as an employee you can receive a daily parental allowance. During this period of leave, you remain affiliated to the old age insurance, under certain conditions.

The work of UNAPECLE (Union Nationale des Associations de Parents d'Enfants atteints de Cancer or LEucémie), which has worked hard to develop and implement this parental leave, is to be commended.
The parents of a child under 20 years of age suffering from an illness, disability or accident of particular seriousness, making a sustained presence and compulsory care indispensable.

<The parental daily attendance allowance.
The daily parental attendance allowance (AJPP) is granted if you have to interrupt your professional activity to stay with your child because of illness, disability or if your child suffers a serious accident. You receive a daily allowance for each day off, up to a maximum of 22 days per month.

<News about the right to forget.

The right to forget must allow people who have been diagnosed with cancer to no longer need to declare it when taking out a credit.

In 2015, as part of the 3rd Cancer Plan and after discussions between the banking and insurance sectors on the one hand and patient associations on the other, a memorandum of understanding was drafted and signed by all parties.

The provisions of this protocol include in particular a right of oblivion for cancers occurring before the age of 15 years, 5 years after the end date of the therapeutic protocol. Applicants for insurance will have nothing to declare in this case to the insurer.

These provisions are integrated into the AERAS (s'Assurer et Emprunter avec un Risque Aggravé de Santé) agreement, which aims to facilitate access to credit for people with an aggravated health risk, so that former patients can benefit from it.

It increases the risk coverage and the ceiling amount of the guarantees while limiting additional insurance costs.

Patient associations such as UNAPECLE have started negotiations to extend the conditions of the right to be forgotten to adolescents and young adults.
