We are a few days away from the last payment of the December pension to retirees from both the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), as well as those of the Institute of Social Security and Services for State Workers (ISSSTE). According to the annual payment schedule, the deposit corresponding to December will be made on November 30, 2021. Find out all the details from Depor.
It should be noted that according to the data provided from the 2020 Population and Housing Census, carried out by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi), around 3 million 410 thousand 213 people in Mexico are in the situation of pensioners or retirees.
What is the IMSS-ISSSTE Pension?
According to the IMSS, a pension is an economic benefit intended to protect a worker in the event of an accident at work, when suffering an illness, or when reaching at least 60 years of age.
It is also possible to grant the payment to the beneficiaries in the event of the death of the worker or pensioner. In the case of Mexico, both the IMSS and the ISSSTE are in charge of providing pensions to workers in different ways.
When will the December payment be available?
As every year. The Mexican authorities issue a calendar in which people will be able to know the days on which they should receive the pension. In the case of the Christmas bonus, this should have been reflected in the last fortnight of November.
That said, the last payment for the pension for this 2021 will be reflected before next November 30, this for payments by the ISSSTE, as well as by people who are affiliated with the IMSS.
According to government data, by the beginning of 2022 the payment of the second part of the Christmas bonus for people affiliated with ISSSTE should be reflected, according to the calendar for this 2021, as long as no changes occur.
