The Institute of the National Fund for Workers’ Housing (Infonavit) is an institution that supports all eligible workers with a loan, so that they can obtain housing.
How can I process my Infonavit credit?
The first step you have to take to apply for your Infonavit credit is to make sure that you are registered with the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), or that your employer has registered you with it and is making the corresponding contributions to your Housing Account.
If indeed, you are registered with the IMSS, you should know the following beforehand:
What can you use your Infonavit credit for?
Build your own home if you or your partner have your own land
Buy a new, used or mortgaged home
Expand or repair your house
pay off a mortgage
Choose the program that suits your needs
Before applying for your loan, it is important that you know what projects Infonavit has, or the one that best suits your needs, as well as the best options to manage the resources and financial solutions that best suit you.
The types of credits offered by the institute are the following:
Infonavit Credit: The institute grants the beneficiary an amount on credit and adds the balance of the Housing Subaccount, to increase the amount of the loan for the benefit of the applicant.
Unámos Creditos Infonavit: This program is offered by the institute so that the worker acquires a new or used home together with a family member: parents, siblings or children, or with a co-resident: friend, partner even if they are not married. In this case, Infonavit will grant up to 90% of the maximum amount that each worker would receive individually.
Total Infonavit: It is a mortgage loan in co-participation with a financial entity, plus the balance of the Housing Subaccount, which gives the insured a maximum credit capacity, to acquire a new or used house of any value.
Mejoravit: It is a loan that allows the worker to carry out repairs and improvements to the home where he lives (which may be in the name of the insured or his spouse, or of a relative such as his parents, children or grandparents). With this program the beneficiary can paint, waterproof, lay floors, blacksmithing, carpentry, among others.
Second Infonavit Credit: It is focused on workers who have already requested a loan with the institution, but wish to request another with a larger amount. In this option, the institute grants the loan with the co-participation of a financial entity.
