About Us

The IDB Association of Retirees, created in the 1970s, has the main objectives of strengthening the connection between all its members, organizing activities that support their well-being, and monitoring the Bank’s activities and policies to promote the rights and interests of our members, particularly in matters related to our Retirement Plan, Health Insurance Plan, Tax Refund Policy, and other relevant topics for retirees. This responsibility has been given to the Association by the Bank itself, granting it participation in its official committees on these issues.

Members have access to up-to-date information on everything related to our rights and interests as IDB retirees, including manuals, forms, HRD communications, etc. In addition, members receive newsletters with information on social and cultural activities carried out by the Association; the “Today’s News” prepared by the Office of External Relations of the IDB; and timely information about the death of colleagues, as well as their spouses, with an indication of family contacts to send condolences. Additionally, members have access to the addresses and telephone numbers of all members.

The Association is administered by a Board of Directors, elected among its members, which is made up of six Executive Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Deputy Secretary, and Deputy Treasurer) and seven Directors. The Board meets monthly, holds an annual meeting in April, and serves during a period of two years.
