This program is nothing more than an initiative that the Government of Mexico implemented in order to provide more consistent economic support to adults over 68 years of age who are in a vulnerable situation in the country.

Those adults over 65 years of age who live in municipalities that are members of indigenous communities are also contemplated. This ensures that these people can have a more dignified standard of living and a higher quality of life.

It is important to clarify that this pension is based on the principles of social justice and equity, since we all know that older adults contributed to the development of the country throughout their lives and now need to have more comfort to have a peaceful old age.

The monthly financial support is $4,812 Mexican pesos and, in addition to that, the program also offers other services of extreme importance for this age group, such as free medical care and psychological support.
