SUMMARY – MORNING PRESIDENTIAL PRESS CONFERENCE – WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2024

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador criticized and condemned the media for saying that the Pension Fund for Well-Being was designed to expropriate the pensions of workers who are enrolled in a Retirement Fund Manager (Afore). What the Pension Fund seeks to do to enable workers who retire to receive more money during their retirement. One of the sources of financing will come from the Afores, but it will be from the money they illegally manage, not from workers’ accounts.

On April 19, Minister of the Interior Luis Alcalde and the General Director of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) Zoé Robledo will explain during the morning press conference what the Pension Reform and the Pension Fund for Well-Being are all about and how the Afores operate.
