thunderhorse Posted February 13, 2007 Share Posted February 13, 2007 I know it's been done to death, but sometimes the answers aren't evident when so many questions are blurred by employment and pension considerations.In France permanently. The E106's ran out Jan this year. No further extension. No problem.We don't work, no pensions (yet), but live off the equity from the house sale in the UK (all savings in the UK). CPAM were talking about taking 8% of our income. I told the girl that our 'income' was simply pre-taxed savings in the UK, transferred out here as we need it, and that we didn't have an 'income' per se.She then decided to tell me that all our savings are income, and they want 8%!Our savings interest is under the earnings threshold (€7000?) And our French income tax bill is zero.So what gives? Has the CPAM lassie got it wrong? Or do they want 8% of our savings interest which may fall above the threshold? Or something worse? [:(]Cheers.
