The new Pension Group of FIDE, from full intellectual freedom, intends to contribute its proposals for improvement to the recent Recommendations of the Toledo Pact Commission. For this, these proposals will be transferred to Civil Society so that they can be taken into account in the corresponding regulatory modification processes.

A sustainable reform of the pension system has become an irreplaceable objective of the Spanish Society given the proximity, in 2022, of the beginning of the retirement of the extensive generation of babyboomers, together with the expected and continuous increase in life expectancy , and also with the new ways of working and producing that will affect us all.

We can affirm, without a doubt, that the moment is right after the parliamentary approval of the Commission's report and we therefore propose to work with generosity and commitment.

Stage II (2022)

In this new stage of the Pension Group of FIDE We will put the emphasis on the different perspectives related to the field of pensions and their permanent and necessary adaptation to the social reality of our country, trying to focus on the most controversial aspects, among others: the coherence between labor legislation and of social security, the compatibility between sufficiency and sustainability in the pension reform, complementary social security, the contribution of the self-employed, etc...

We will also discuss active aging and the importance of walking voluntarily, in a flexible framework, to adapt the ordinary retirement age with life expectancy.

Our goal is to provide informed, direct and accessible knowledge so that it can serve as a reference for decision-making in matters of pensions.
