Associação Mutualista Montepio

Touching people's
lives since 1840

Towards a more fair society

Founded in 1840, a period marked by the absence of state guaranteed social security, Associação Mutualista Montepio introduced Portugal to a pioneering type of support: the payment of survivors’ pensions.

Today the Association is a reference in the social sector of the economy, with more than 630 thousand members, and remains faithful to the principles that made it the largest association of Portugal and one of the biggest in Europe.
