Benefits of economic support for unemployment in Mexico

The Afores grants registered workers between 30 and 90 days of salary in case of unemployment or marital expenses.

Besides, if you conserve spontaneously, you can opt for the amount that you have deposited in your account two months after the first contribution.

These activities are part of the financial profit foreseen by the Retirement Savings System (SAR), in which the law allows workers to have 3 partial withdrawals and make 2 withdrawals of their total savings.

The purpose of the first 3 is to safeguard the guarantees of economic adversities that the worker may present at some point in his working life.

Meanwhile, the last 2 withdrawals are made at the time the worker retires, upon turning 65 or when the account holder unfortunately dies and the total savings are delivered to their relatives.

Point to consider

It should be taken into account that when you have unemployment assistance, the Mexican Social Security Institute will subtract a minimum of 52 weeks of contributions from your Afore account.

The good part is that you will be given the option to reset them, When you have a new job, when you start contributing to the IMSS, you will have to refund these weeks of contributions directly to your Afore.

This is a preventive measure for workers who are going through hard times in Mexico, or those who are temporarily unemployed for some reason.
