New year, new device. The conversion premium comes back in 2019 in a somewhat different form. Last year, "about 300,000 requests for conversion bonus were made" welcomed François de Rugy, Minister of the Ecological and Solidarity Transition, to the Parisian-Today in France, this Wednesday. 202,000 of them have already been paid.

Since 2008, it has been defined on the basis of two criteria: compatibility with the applicant's "professional qualifications and skills" and his former remuneration.
