Santiago, August 9, 2017 . AFP Capital held the second live stream with affiliates. This time, the objective was to carry out an in-depth analysis of the current pension system, its pillars and how to build a pension based on the reality of each individual. Eduardo Vildósola, AFP Capital's general manager, and Yasna Apablaza, Service manager, explained the three pillars making up the system, their characteristics, differences and benefits. Additionally, they provided hints on how to build and strengthen future pension according to the reality of each individual. "The final pension is the average of savings along the entire working life; therefore, the amount will not be equal to the last salary paid. However, if you make a plan and you stick to it, you can achieve up to 70% of the average of the salaries paid during the last 10 years of work," said Vildósla, who highlighted the importance of voluntary savings, as a pension booster and also listed the benefits derived from the monthly payment of contributions. Finally, Yasna Apablaza stressed the importance for individuals to know about their pension at least once a year in order to be able to manage a pension according to their expectations.
