    The Institute of Social Security for State Workers of Yucatan requested SOCIEUX+ assistance in view of the reform of the State Law on Social Security with the goal of introducing normative arrangements that may ensure the financial sustainability of services and payments to rightsholders. The comprehensive reform proposal is largely based on European experiences of similar reforming efforts of pensions systems. In particular, the teams of public experts from Spain have focused on the existing challenges to the Institute’s financial reserves and formulated proposals aimed to increase the financial sustainability of the Institute’s accounts; they have taken inspiration in the formulation of reforms’ proposals, to European trends in the determination of the balanced income of the system, formulas of taxation, determination of the requirements for access to pensions and their calculation. The final, concrete result of the cooperation is a reviewed text of Law introducing articles and norms that act on the economic and financial sustainability of the Institute’s accounts.

    Description
    The Organización Nacional de Instituciones Estatales de Seguridad Social (ONIESS) is a platform that brings together social security agencies from adhering Mexican states. SOCIEUX+ has supported the emergence and formal establishment of ONIESS through various actions (including 2017-17, 2015-24, and 2014-25). The present action supports ONIESS’ initial endeavors as decided by the General Assembly. ONIESS has been provided by experts from Belgium and Spain with two important tools, which are, from one side, the questionnaire for defining the characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of the different State social security systems and, from the other side, a draft proposal for a General Social Security Law. This document is to be conceived not as a ready-to-be-approved proposal of Law, but rather as a tool that allows ONIESS to set up a minimum common denominator defining their social security systems and engage in policy dialogue with the federal authorities over future proposals of reform of the social security system at large.

    Description
    The Institute of Social Security of the State of Guanajuato (ISSEG) is responsible for providing insurance benefits to the formal sector [public employees and civil servants] in the Mexican State of Guanajuato. The amounts of pensions originally guaranteed by the ISSEG were pre-defined as a percentage of the affiliate’s wage at time of compliance of retirement criteria. The underlying solidarity fund is financed by contributions of workers and employers, as well as the returns generated by investments. Due to the challenges in funding the existing system, the ISSEG was considering reforms to set benefits on actual historical contributions. Mobilised experts contributed in building capacities of the ISSEG for planned reforms by addressing issues with their peers in policy definition and administrative requirement definition by sharing EU Member States and common experience in making pension schemes affordable in the face of changing economic, policy and demographic environments. In particular, they transferred understanding on legal, actuarial and financial implications of the implementation of the proposed reforms.

    Description
    Follow-up from action 2014-04 This action built on these achievements of the first action with the ISSEG, and allowed European experts and their Mexican peers to formulate practical recommendations for the coordinated development at federal level of state pension funds. Exchanges addressed in particular legal, actuarial and administrative aspects. ISSEG’s experience and leadership was first presented to two Mexican States pension funds, which was a significant step to boost state-level coordination and cooperation. The final action’s activity was a National Inter-State Pensions Conference which brought together all state funds of Mexico. The first conclusion reached by consensus during the conference was the need to work towards establishing a new framework law, which contains general principles aimed at guaranteeing a "decent" and coordinated pension system for all Mexicans and which is disassociated from salaries.
