Have you ever calculated how much you will receive in pension? Many people tend to leave this important issue for later but it could be too late since the pension you would receive may not be enough to live on. But all is not lost, there is something you can do to prevent that from happening.
The first thing you have to do is know in which Retirement Fund Administrator (Afore) you are registered as a worker who is listed with the IMSS and ISSSTE. They are in charge, as their name indicates, of managing the resources so that when your retirement arrives, you have the right to receive a pension.

One of the things that you should take into account of the Afore in which you are or in which you are going to register, are the returns that it offers you for your savings. The most advisable thing is to join one that generates more profits for your money.
If you do not know how to consult this information, you can do so in your account statement, which must reach your home or by email three times a year, at the bottom of this document all the Afores that manage the resources of the workers appear in Mexico and the performance they offer according to their age.
In the same way, you should know that you are not alone in this process since the National Commission of the Retirement Savings System (Consar) is in charge of regulating the activities of the Afores. If you want to increase your savings to receive a higher pension, you can make voluntary contributions to your account.
If you do not have the information at hand, here we will give you the October results for the accounts of those born between 1970 and 1974, as well as the percentage of earnings. According to Consar, a part of your savings will go to one of the Retirement Funds Investment Companies (Siefores), mutual funds, to which you are assigned according to your age.
