Social security developments and trends – Americas 2023

Demarcating developments and trends in social security in a region as diverse as the Americas is challenging. Institutions in the region operate in widely varying contexts representing different income levels; social, political and demographic trajectories; geographical locations; and overall state capacity. Despite this diversity, social security institutions converge around the common goal of helping to progressively realize the universal right to social security through the effective delivery of comprehensive and adequate protections for the populations they serve.
