This working paper will try, as main objective, to provide an overview of the current situation of Argentine´s pension system and analyze its performance in the medium term, from a perspective of international comparison, analyzing how was, in other countries the resolution of the problems that we will have inexorably to face in the next years, such as loss of the demographic dividend and the increasing deterioration of ANSES´s fiscal accounts.
