Abstract

The Uruguayan pension system is one of the largest in Latin America relative to the country size. In 1995, the parliament passed a new pension law that introduced structural reforms in the system. The key goal of the reform was to restore intertemporal sustainability of the public budget, that was threatened by the steady growth of pension expenditure. The present paper summarizes some results from simulations designed to assess fiscal sustainability in the aftermath of the reform. In the base scenario, the deficit of the public pension program and the primary deficit of the government rise at the inception - the so-called transition deficit-, but reduce significantly in the medium to long run. Sensitivity analysis shows that the expected improvement in the control of evasion is a key variable in the projected reduction of the primary deficit.
