The Chilean Pension System 2010
This new book on the Chilean Pension System, published by the Superintendence of Pensions, provides a detailed overview of how this system operates in Chile, including the changes implemented through the Chilean Pension Reform, which entered into effect in July 2008.
We have provided a full description of both the mandatory and voluntary contribution components of the Chilean Pension System, as well as the new Solidarity Pillar, which was introduced following the Pension Reform. We have also reviewed the main results achieved and the challenges this system will face in the near future.
This publication is intended as a contribution to current knowledge on the Chilean Pension System and a reference text for the public policy debate in this field. It was made possible by the efforts of the Superintendence of Pensions and aims to provide national and international readers with a complete, accurate and up-to-date picture of our Pension System, including all recent modifications and improvements introduced through the Pension Reform.
