The article contributes to the study of the current state and the economic outlook of the pension system in Colombia by means of three types of analysis: (i) the description of the system based on statistics about coverage, fidelity rates, transfers between regimes and impact on public finances, among others, (ii) estimations and long-run projections of demographic trends in Colombia and (iii) the analysis of the evolution and the effect of the two main regimes (the pay-as-you-go scheme and the private-savings one) on macroeconomic variables such as savings, interest rates, wages, taxes and social welfare.
