Social Security Debt Amnesty

The Institute's manager, Alfredo Del Cid, indicated that the pardon will be valid for six months once the agreement is published.

Rosa M. Bolaños wrote in La Prensa Libre's website: "According to the manager, the decision was taken after several municipalities expressed their willing to pay the debt, but their incapacity to cover the fees, interests and surcharges".
