If you work independently in the US, you can register with the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS), or if you were already part of it before leaving, you can reactivate your retirement funds.
Mexican migrants who work independently in the United States can join the IMSS and access the benefits offered by having social security in Mexico. In addition, for migrants who were already registered, they can reactivate their retirement funds.
Joining the IMSS allows your beneficiaries such as the spouse or common-law partner, daughters and sons, father and mother to access medical, hospital, pharmaceutical and obstetric care services.
Other benefits include the payment of disabilities due to illness or work accidents, childcare, extensive insurance for your immediate family, and savings for retirement.
To start the process, you need:
- Identification data
- Monthly income report
- CURP, la cual puedes tramitar here
- Capture line
