Abstract

In 2000 only 22% of older people in Mexico received a pension. Then, in 2002, the first non-contributory pension was introduced in Mexico City. Since then 17 of Mexico's 31 states have also introduced social pensions and so has the federal district. The introduction of these non-contributory pensions meant that in 2013 coverage had risen to 88%. This briefing first looks at the situation before social pensions were introduced, it then tracks the rise in coverage and finishes by suggesting some areas for improvement.
