The IMSS pension is one of the main benefits received by seniors who retire from the institution. However, for February 2024, there are many changes that you should be aware of.
The Chamber of Deputies is preparing up to two changes to the IMSS 2024 Pension Law for the month of February. Despite this, the authorities are expected to allow more changes in payment laws throughout the year.
What changes will occur in the IMSS 2024 pension payment in February?
One of the first changes that will take place is about people voluntarily participating in health insurance for the family. In this, they can choose whether they will contribute monthly, twice a month, every half year, or even every year. In the case of partial payment, it will not be applied to the amount to be paid for the updates.
On the other hand, one of the changes that will take place in February 2024 is that the minimum amount received from the IMSS Pension will be increased for all Modality 40 segments; it will be possible to increase the monthly deposit by voluntary contribution.
The new amount that pensioners will receive under Modality 40 will be 9,600 pesos per month, according to the calculation of the IMSS 2024 Pension. It is important to mention that those who receive their payment through an AFORE will be subject to the conditions of that financial entity.
Last but not least, the widow’s allowance can now be claimed by the pensioner’s spouse, even if they are of the same sex. Similarly, there is no need for them to get married.
