The Aubry’s law voted in 1999 introduced a reform in the accumulation system of the specific minimum income recipients. This population is divided in two ones: the recipients of an api (allocation parent isolé) and the recipients of a rmi (revenu minimum d’Insertion). Our purpose is to study the effect of a reform by comparing these two populations, in a French oversea area where the unemployement is the most important in France. The api’s recipient can for the fist time draw salary and cash assistance concurrently although the rmi’s recipients knew already this system before the reform. On panel data, we applied econometric models of qualitative variable: a simple logit, a fixed effect logit and a random effect logit. It appears the effect of reform is positive: it creates incentives for the cash assistance recipients to take a job.
