Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, the regime for notary clerk is older (1937) than french social security (1945) and includes a "smart" funding scheme: part of it is funded by a direct 4% tax on the revenue of the offices, instead of being entirely proportional to salaries paid. This kept the money flowing when the word processor came in and slashed to work force (cos legal really isn't much more than word processing).
