The Expansion of Non-Contributory Transfer in Uruguay

 The Expansion of Non-Contributory Transfer in Uruguay, Verónica Amarante and Andrea Vigorito describe the implementation of the National Assistance Plan of Social Emergency (Plan de Atención Nacional a la Emergencia Social, PANES) between 2005 and 2007 and summarize its socioeconomic impacts. They also analyse the transition from PANES to Plan Equidad (Equity Plan), placing particular emphasis on the reform of Family Allowances (AFAM) that unifies the targeted two-tier system (social security versus social assistance) for the provision of cash benefits to households with children. The results show a substantial increase of coverage, especially for those at the lower end of the income distribution ( click here for the Spanish version)
