Whereas pensions are the most effective programs in terms of poverty reduction, family allowances are most efficient among the existing income transfer programs. 13 shows that, without pensions, poverty rates would be 10 percentage points higher than their current levels. Similarly, family allowances would reduce the headcount ratio about 2 percentage points, and together, Jefes, Familias, and Seguro would reduce the poverty rate about 1 percentage point. Nevertheless, the pension program is six times larger than family allowances.

Coverage of unemployment insurance is negligible. The factors that explain the different trends in coverage of family allowances are quite different from those behind the trends in the social assistance programs. While the percentage of poor households receiving family allowances declined, the same indicator increased for nonpoor households. In the case of Jefes, Familias, and Seguro, the aggregate coverage rate went down when poor households left Jefes. In other words, the percentage of poor families that do not participate in Jefes, Familias, and Seguro is increasing because of the combination of poverty transitions and closed entrance to the social assistance programs.

First, because the social assistance programs—Jefes, Seguro, and Familias—are all closed to new entrants, the share of the poor left out of the programs is growing relative to the share receiving the benefits. Second, the radical scaling up of pension provided large transfers to parts of the population not at the bottom of the income distribution. 14.
