Has anyone gained access to the CMU after expiry of an E106 and before state pension age? My wife and I are shortly to be in that position and the local CPAM (Drome - 26) have taken 3 months to tell us we're not entitled but haven't really given any reason other than a reference to a decree of 2007 that I understand has been "reinterpreted" following EU infraction proceedings. What I have read on the subject in the expat press suggested that applications would be looked at on a case-by-case basis, but without any indication of what the criteria are.

Does anyone have any information on the subject or any personal experience that might assist? Thanks.
