Benefits included in the Agreement

Benefits included in the Agreement

General information

The Agreement applies to the following benefits:

Relating to Spain:

To the following contributory benefits in the Social Security System:

  • Benefits for permanent disability, old age, and death and survival.
  • Pensions for work-related injuries and occupational diseases.
In relation to Mexico:

To the obligatory and voluntary schemes included in the Social Security Law for:

  • Pensions from insurance for disability, old age, giving up work due to extreme old age, and death.
  • Work-related risk insurance pensions.
Regarding these benefits, remember that:
  • To get the contributory benefits included in the Agreement, periods of insurance completed in Spain and Mexico can be added together.
  • Contributory economic benefits can be collected regardless of whether the interested party is resident or currently located in Spain or Mexico.
  • Each country will pay its own benefits directly to the beneficiary.
  • Those who meet the requirements of the legislation of both countries to be entitled to a contributory pension can collect it from both.

Disability, Old Age, Giving Up Work due to Extreme Old Age, and Death and Survival

Each country will examine the pension application separately, as follows:

  • If the interested party is entitled to the pension without the need to add in the periods of insurance in the other country, the corresponding pension will be granted taking into account only its own periods of insurance.
  • If the interested party is not entitled to the pension in the terms of the previous paragraph, the periods of accredited insurance from the other country will be added in. The pension will not be for the whole amount but a proportion of the periods of insurance in the country granting it and the sum of the periods for Spain and Mexico.
  • In the case of a Spanish Social Security retirement pension that considers a total of insurance periods accredited in Mexico, this total shall also be used to determine the age of entitlement to the pension.

Work-related Injury and Occupational Disease

The benefit will be determined by the country whose legislation the worker is subject to on the date when the accident occurred or the disease was contracted.
