Social security retirement benefits

What you need to know

Retirement benefits are provided to employees through the national social security program (IMSS). This is a government economic benefit program that protects employees in the event of an accident, illness, or job loss, including retirement.

How the plan works

IMSS provides you with a monthly retirement benefit, including medical services, once you qualify for retirement, or if you become permanently or partially disabled through a work accident or an illness.

In the event of your death, your retirement benefit will be paid to your designated beneficiaries. Learn more about this benefit on the IMSS website.

To qualify for retirement and receive your retirement benefits, you must:

  • Be at least 60 years old
  • Not perform any work for pay
  • Be within the conservation of rights period
  • Have at least 500 weeks listed with IMSS

Use the CONSAR tool to estimate the amount of your retirement benefit.
