The new FIDE Pension Group, 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 the 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.
