The Mexican Defined Contribution Pension System: Perspective for Low Income Workers

Oliver Azuara ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper analyzes the structure and perspectives of the current pension system, introduced in 1997 as part of Mexico’s structural changes. In particular, it focuses on the effects of the system on poverty after retirement and emphasizes the redistributive component of its design. In addition, there is an analysis of alternative forms for financing pensions at the end of the working lives of affiliates. Finally, there are some recommendations to improve the functioning and financing of the system.
