Plan d’Epargne pour la Retraite Collectif (PERCO) : [36]

Collective pension savings scheme which allows the employees of a company or group of companies to save, in some cases with help from their employer, by investing in transferable securities [37]. Employees enjoy favourable tax treatment in exchange for their savings being blocked, generally until the retirement age. The sums paid are therefore blocked until the employee retires, barring exceptional circumstances explicitly provided by law.

Plan d’Epargne Retraite Populaire (PERP) : [38]

Group life insurance policy through which savings are built up over a long period of time, leading to the payment of a life annuity upon retirement. The savings are available, at the time of retirement, in the form of a lump-sum payout only for the purchase of a primary residence (first-time home ownership). In addition to the life insurance regulations applicable to PERPs, the operation of this scheme is subject to specific provisions. Under certain conditions, a PERP offers an upfront tax advantage (deduction of the payments made).
