When Goals Diverge: The Political Economy of Social Security Reform in Mexico

This report presents original research conducted on the December, 1995 reform of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, IMSS). The focus of the analysis is on the IMSS disability, old age retirement, unemployment in advanced age and death (Invalidez, vejez, cesantia en edad avanzada y muerte, IVCM) pension system. The analytical focus of this paper is on the potential impact of the reform policies for the IMSS, the national economy, workers presently covered by the IVCM pension system and workers not covered by the IVCM pension system. The services, budgets, principal needs for reform, leadership structure and political elements of the IMSS are also outlined.
