Mexico pledges to extend supplemental pensions
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto says he will expand a supplementary pension program by lowering the eligibility age to 65.
The program currently applies to people 70 and over and gives them a payment of about 500 pesos ($39) a month.
The expansion will add about 2.5 million people to the approximately 5.6 million Mexicans now getting benefits.
