Pension’s level in Romania has been a matter of passionate debates inside the political class since 1990 until today. The alarming increase in the number of pensioners, which exceeded the number of employees in the economy, linked to the economic and social development of our country, has made impossible to create a social system for older people, system able to provide a decent level for their income. Research and evaluation have displayed regular concerns in relation to the social and economic situation of the older persons and they have demonstrated that they are social category that is being subjected to the highest injustices in the market economy.
