The Federal Government develops the first two social programs in Yucatan related to the lifting of a census in order to identify older adults who will receive their pension electronically in 2019, and with the youth sector, to link it to the labor sector.
The state coordinator of Development Programs, Joaquín Díaz Mena, said that the census of older adults is 50% complete.
“We already cover the entire population of high priority in Yucatan, and now we are working in the average priority population in all the municipalities across the state, by the end of the month we must finish this census” he explained.
He explained that the work involves going from house to house to detect the beneficiaries of programs, specifically adults over 65 years of age or older.
“In January, they will receive a “Welfare” debit card, from which they will be able to withdraw their pension from Bansefi ATMs, in such a way that there will no longer be people waiting in long lines under the Yucatecan sun to collect their money” he said.
He added that they are also working on the project “Young people building the future” (Jóvenes construyendo el futuro), which is aimed at people aged 18 to 29, that will be identified to qualify for this program, which will link these young people with local companies that can offer them a job, while they study, and provide them with a monthly eonomic support for one year.
When asked about the resignations of delegates in several agencies of the Federal Government in Yucatan, Diaz Mena explained that so far, it has not defined whether there will be substitutions or not.
