The Department of Seniors and Social Action at the Monaco City Council, in particular its social action unit, under the aegis of Mayor Georges Marsan, has just created a new allowance: the Supplementary Disability Allowance or Handicap (ASIH). It now replaces the National Old Age Allowance (ANV) which was offered to persons of Monegasque nationality regardless of age, beneficiaries of the Disabled Adult Allowance (AAH) or the Old Age Handicap Allowance (AHV), or a disability pension (or annuity).
From now, the following distinction is made regarding the allocation of these two allowances:
– The Supplementary Disability or Disability Allowance (ASIH) is intended for Monegasque adults, in addition to the payment of the AAH, the AHV or a pension (or annuity);
– The National Old Age Allowance (ANV) is now exclusively reserved for people over 60, of Monegasque nationality, not benefiting from any allowance paid by the Monegasque State.
The Old Age Handicap Allowance (AHV) has also been set up by the services of the Government of Monaco to take over the AAH which was only allocated to beneficiaries until the age of 60 years.
By creating the ASIH, the Monaco City Council confirms its social role, alongside the Prince’s Government, and its skills in assisting people in difficulty.
The National Council and government have come together for the 3rd Joint Monitoring Meeting on Covid-19.
As lockdown continues, the fire brigade of Monaco is taking additional steps to ensure the rules of confinement are respected, notably by integrating a drone as part of its public safety repertoire.
The Assembly has unanimously re-elected Stéphane Valeri as President of the National Council, with Brigitte Boccone-Pagès remaining as Vice-President.
Two Monaco-based companies are doing their bit to help during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fortunately no one was injured in the incident, which took place at 6 am when few pedestrians were out and about. The driver, described as a British resident of Monaco, had stolen the vehicle from outside the Estoril building just a few hundred metres away before losing control and crashing into the outside seating area. According to police reports, the driver had two grammes of alcohol per litre of blood when he was arrested. The vehicle he had taken belonged to a delivery driver. The restaurant repaired the considerable damage and opened for business as usual at lunchtime on Saturday.
