Petro declared his intention to reform the pension system by establishing a public administrator for pension funds. This will enable Petro to blend both public and private money into an "mixed and complementary system."

The candidate has said that in Colombia "we do not have pension systems, but banks have a profit system," so many claim that he will end the possibility of achieving the Presidency. Petro recently stated however that he wouldn't abolish the system, but would instead seek to overhaul the system of pensions in Colombia, in order to achieve the minimum amount of pension for Colombians. https://cnnespanol.cnn.com/2022/05/29/gustavo-petro-guerrillero-m-19-historia-orix-2/ Petro said that there is "no requirement" to increase the pension age.
