Special attention is taken to the remuneration of civil servants during those years and the changes in the adjustment of pensions. The results shows a relative stability in the inequality in the period. The constitutional reform, refers to the change in the adjustment system of the pensions, did not alter the general distribution of income but there were changes regard to the participation of the pensions in total income and its contribution to the inequality. The reform improved retired people situation in relation with the rest of the population, affecting in an important way those people who have only the pensions as source of income.
