Do you know which is the institution in charge of regulating the activities carried out by the Afores? The National Commission of the Retirement Savings System (Consar) is the one who has the obligation to help the beneficiaries who have any questions about their account.
On the other hand, the Afores are those who are in charge of managing the resources of the Mexican workers who contribute to the IMSS and ISSSTE so that when the moment of retirement arrives, they can access a pension, therefore it is important to be aware of the returns that each one offers you.
Here you can check the percentages obtained by the Afores at the end of January, for those born between 1965 and 1969:
Afore Performance December-January Profuturo from 5.96% to 5.52% (same position) Coppel from 5.57% goes to 5.12% (same position) Sura from 5.47% to 5.12% (same position) XXI Banorte from 5.40% to 4.97% (same position) Citibanamex from 5.26% to 4.89% (up one position) Pensionissste from 5.29% to 4.79% (down one position) Principal from 5.20% to 4.79% (same position ) Azteca from 5.11% to 4.68% (same position) Inbursa from 4.89% to 4.38% (same position) Invercap from 4.10% to 3.68% (same position)
If we take into account the data in the previous table, the three that offer the most returns in January for those born between 1965 and 1969 are: Profuturo, Coppel and Sura.
In your account statement, which should arrive three times a year at your address or by email, you can also check the updated yield table so that you can analyze if the Afore you are in is the one that gives you the most for your saving.
One way to increase that saving, so that when the time comes to retire you can receive a higher pension, is by making voluntary contributions to your account. This can be done through bank transfers, through the Afore Móvil application.
The Consar recommends that you take three things into account before dedicating yourself to an Afore:
That the returns it gives you are high. How much commission does it charge you? The services offered to you Changes in pensions
A few days ago, some reforms to the pension system were approved, including the number of contributed weeks required to access a pension, which will now be less. In the same way, the commissions that Afores charge for managing your money will be lower, which will bring benefits for workers and their savings.
