Programme of Food Support for Adults over 68 years old living in Mexico City
This programme started on 2001 covering people over 70 years old. In 2009, the coverage was extended to adults over 68 years old. Nowadays, 92% of the elderly residents in Mexico City are receiving this pension, which represents the only source of income for 29% of women and 15% of men. The amount of the transfer is equivalent to half of the minimum wage of Mexico City. The programme also considers social workers visits to monitor the beneficiaries.
