The agreement between the government and Beat consists of two parts: the first is to provide information through online training so that drivers understand the importance of these savings, and the second is to make voluntary contributions on a monthly basis from the income generated.
“The program was born in response to the interest that driver users have shown, according to a survey carried out by Beat, 62% would be interested in automatically saving part of their income generated through the app,” Consar detailed.
The money that is saved voluntarily will go to the stock market for short-term savings, which means that Beat users will be able to access the money whenever they want.
Until March 2022, the Consar registered 284,635 independent workers registered in the Retirement Savings System (SAR). The total universe of accounts is 70.8 million accounts.
With this program, Consar seeks to design other voluntary savings schemes for independent workers so that they can have more money for their retirement.
The National Survey of Financial Inclusion 2021, carried out by the Inegi, highlights that six out of 10 people plan to cover their old age expenses with government support.
