Durante las ultimas decadas, la edad media de jubilacion de los trabajadores en los paises desarrollados se ha reducido notablemente. Una cuestion discutida, sin embargo, es si esta conducta de jubilacion es consecuencia o no de la normativa que rige los sistemas publicos de pensiones. Si esta conducta es consecuencia, principalmente, de dicha normativa, esto indica que los trabajadores la conocen y la comprenden. Caso contrario, entonces los trabajadores no la conocen, o la conocen pero no la comprenden. En este trabajo, analizamos la normativa del sistema publico de pensiones en Espa˜na, y en base a ella, obtenemos una conducta teorica optima de jubilacion, dadas las caracterisicas individuales del trabajador. Posteriormente, analizamos la conducta empirica de jubilaci´on de los trabajadores en Espa˜na. Encontramos que esta conducta empir´ica es similar a la conducta teorica, con lo cual concluimos que los trabajadores de edad avanzada si conocen y entienden la normativa del Sistema Publico Espa˜nol de Pensiones.
