What is the Prestation Compensation Handicap (PCH)?

In France, the Prestation Compensation Handicap (PCH) covers certain expenses linked to a major difficulty in terms of autonomy, as a consequence of disability (for example, the financing of a technical aid or recourse to a third party).

This is a personalized form of assistance, granted on the basis of a specific request submitted via a file, with supporting estimates. The granting of aid then depends on an assessment of the request by a multi-disciplinary committee.

The application must be sent to the Maison départementale des personnes handicapées (MDPH ) in your département:

  • The application form. You can apply online for certain departments! Go here
  • Required administrative documents
  • An estimate for the purchase of the technical aid.
