Abstract

Las evaluaciones recientes, hechas a las reformas realizadas a los sistemas de pensiones de varios países de América Latina, han resaltado la necesidad de prestar mayor atención a la protección del riesgo de vejez de los más pobres. La fragilidad de la protección de la vejez resulta, en esencia, del desfavorable desempeño del mercado laboral y de su precaria articulación con los sistemas de protección social de los países. El siguiente documento inicia mostrando algunos rasgos del financiamiento de las prestaciones para los ancianos, tanto en los países desarrollados como subdesarrollados. Así mismo, se precisan los interrogantes que plantean los autores alrededor del tema en América Latina y Colombia, bajo una revisión de los diferentes instrumentos introducidos con la reforma al sistema en 1993, para ampliar la cobertura y proteger a los más viejos, y sus ajustes recientes. Finalmente, se concluye la imposibilidad de lograr una mejor protección, sin involucrar el rediseño de instituciones sociales y fiscales.
