Aim, structure and tasks of the organization

    CNAV is a state owned administrative body with a dual role: as the national office, it defines the strategy of the pensions branch with regard to old age and widow's pensions and social welfare. In the Paris region, it is directly responsible for managing the general pension scheme. It manages contributors' accounts, calculates pension and social welfare entitlements and makes the corresponding payments. In the other regions of France these functions are handled by the regional and general offices of the pension branch.
