The fourth retirement of pension funds has revealed the existing differences in Approve Dignity, which have been manifested in other debates such as the quorum of two thirds in the Convention or the role of the Central Bank.
In relation to the first, this Monday the deputy spoke of the Social Green Regionalist Federation, Alejandra Sepúlveda, who criticized the lack of coordination of the parties within the I Approve Dignity pact in relation to this matter.
It should be remembered that, according to the presidential candidate of the bloc, Gabriel Boric, as well as some members of the Frente Amplio, within the next few days indications will be presented to the project for the fourth withdrawal of pension funds that is being discussed in the Commission for the Constitution of the Chamber of Deputies.
In this regard, the parliamentarian assured as a party they have not been contacted and that she also does not agree with placing restrictions of any kind on said initiative.
“As the Green Regionalist Federation we do not agree on this, we believe that the quotas is absolutely counterproductive, as well as the incorporation of the tax,” he stressed.
In that line he added that “The people who today have the resources to withdraw are people who have a pension history and have had job stability, they are not rich people. A very important example would be teachers, who especially older ones can still have resources in their AFP, but this is because they have a longer pension record. That is why we believe that it is not appropriate to incorporate taxes and fees. I regret that there is not enough coordination, but we are absolutely ready to hand over our arguments as a Regionalist Federation to the other parties in the coalition ”.
Likewise, Sepúlveda advanced one of the indications that they had already announced in the last session of the Constitution Commission, and that they will seek to include in the discussion, which will be mainly aimed at the second withdrawal of 10% for pensioners by the Life Annuity modality , and that in this case it will seek to make the Solidarity Pillar more flexible for these pensioners, as is the case with those of the AFP system.
The legislator also noted that “One of the indications that we want to incorporate in this fourth retreat is that this Solidarity Pillar be flexible. To the extent that income decreases, as occurs in a withdrawal of 10% of life annuities, the pension decreases, therefore, we believe that a delta must be applied there for the Solidarity Pillar to work and, in this way, equalize and that the pension remains exactly the same as before retirement ”, he concluded.
