I have a pension plan in my bank. Can I transfer the consolidated rights to Loreto Mutua?
Yes, but the law does not allow transfers between Pension Plans and Social Benefit Mutual Funds. If you are a member of the Mutual Benefit Fund, the best option is to contract the Loreto Óptima Individual Plan, and you will benefit from the management and returns obtained in it.
I have taken redundancy pay and left Iberia as a result of the Regulation of Employment Plan (ERE). Is it in my interest applying for my Loreto Mutua benefit?

In the case of early retirement, Iberia has committed to continue to pay the employer’s contribution, up to the age of 65 for ground staff and up to age 60 for flight staff, providing the redemption of the mutual fund benefit is not requested (in any of its modalities).
In cases of deferred redeployment or redundancy schemes you can, through a personal contract, make contributions for your own account so as to continue to top up your savings for retirement.
If, in addition to the company contribution, I want to make individual contributions to the Mutual Benefit Fund, how can I do so?
You can increase your contribution up to the tax limits established by Law, making extraordinary contributions to the Mutual Benefit Fund whenever you wish. You can also sign an individual contract to make monthly contributions, or become a participant in the Loreto Óptima Individual Plan.

As a Mutual Benefit Fund member, you can sign an individual contract, to continue making contributions on your own and thus continue increasing your capital in order to maintain your standard of living after retirement. However, if you do not continue to contribute, the capital that you have already saved will remain in the Mutual Benefit Fund until the time you invoke the right due to any collection contingency to, and therefore, you will continue to benefit from the returns obtained by the Mutual Benefit Fund.
