We will not close the PAMI, nor will the AFJPs return. Let’s invest in our grandparents

During the announcement of food reinforcement for PAMI members, Sergio Massa everyone called together Pensioners and pensioners They defended access to free public health care and vowed to continue investing in older adults in an eventual presidency. “We will not close the PAMI, nor will the AFJPs return. We will favor investments in our grandfathers and grandmothers,” he said.

The Minister of Economy and presidential candidate of the Unión por la Patria, together with the head of PAMI, led an event at a retirement home in Hurlingham, Buenos Aires province. Luana Volnovich, There he announced details of the new reinforcement of the food program.

“What we are implementing today is not magic, it is a surplus,” he stressed, explaining that the measure is financially supported thanks to the EU tax contribution COUNTRY TAX, this taxes imported labor, i.e. manufactured goods that are brought into the country. “The tax on imported labor serves a specific purpose: to defend Argentine labor, but also to finance the UNDER”, Massa added.

Reinforcement for pensioners

“A few days ago we were able to issue a bond. At first we said 25,000 pesos. Then we decided that we would increase it to 35,000 pesos due to the impact of the devaluation imposed by the IMF. But Luana (Volnovich) came,” and told me, “I also have this monthly surplus. Almost 3 million pensioners and pensioners receiving an average pension will have to continue to strive to strengthen income. For this reason, we decided to generalize the PAMI food basket. Deposit it into each pensioner’s account together with the Anses payment system and start a bonus beyond the $35,000 reinforcement. $15,000 more per month for the next three months Massa confirmed.

Reinforcement payout will begin on October 8th. It will be done in three installments, with the total amount reaching $45,000Area at up to $37,000, which also applies to retirees and ANSeS pensioners, who also receive up to one and a half salaries from PAMI and are over 60 years old.

Following this line, he valued the management of Wolnovich be at the forefront of social work by highlighting this “Good management does not mean saving resources, but using them intelligently” and cited as an example the Vivir Mejor medication program launched in 2020, which gives them access to free medication. “They want to get rid of it because they say it is an unnecessary expense,” he said of the adjustment proposals put forward by both Patricia Bullrich and Javier Milei.

Defense of the PAMI and criticism of the AFJP

“I would like to ask you to defend him, not only with your voice, but also through conversations with your family. If you don’t have the Better Living, it means the retiree has 20,000 pesos more per month in the shopping cart.” he claimed.

During his speech in Hurlingham, he recalled his beginnings in public management at the helm of Anses. “In 2002, I had to give back the 13% that someone who is currently running for president, Patricia Bullrich, had taken from them. Then I had to introduce the system of increases and work with Néstor (Kirchner) to recover the income pensioners, pensioners and workers said.

In addition, he referred to the pension and pension fund management model and questioned the regressive effects in the Argentine pension system. “I had to fight with the AFJP, which wants to get them to return today,” he said of Bullrich and Milei’s proposals, adding: “There are still 20,000 people who receive the AFJP exit. On average, they earn between 9 and 9 and 44,000 pesos. That’s the reality of what that system represented.”

Finally, he emphasized this during a possible presidency “We will not close the PAMI, nor will the AFJPs return, nor will we make cuts, we will favor investments in our grandfathers and grandmothers. Because a country that has memory and gratitude is a country that has a future.”
