At the end of the Empire, the Restoration separated from the old officials too compromised with the Bonapartist regime. It is the purge in the administration and in the army. Moreover, it separates a large part of the officers who become the famous "half-pay".


16,000 civil servants and military lose their jobs, either for reasons of seniority (for example for clergymen) or by royal decision, more political. In the absence of a generalized and universal pension system, the State then grants these former civil servants pensions in their personal capacity, according to their seniority in the career.
