The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, Elma Saiz, has recognized that, “within the scope of social dialogue and from listening”, she is “working” so that “whoever wants to prolong their working age in optimal conditions, finds incentives and necessary incentives” to do so.

Regarding pensions, he has sent “a message of confidence”, since at the end of this Legislature there will be more than 25,000 million in the pension piggy bank.

Elma Saiz spoke in these terms in an interview on Canal Sur TelevisiĆ³n collected by Europa Press. In it, the government official has assured that these forecasts in relation to the state of the public pension system convey “certainty not only to today’s pensioners who are seeing their pensions revalued for social justice, but also to the pensioners of the future.”

Minister Elma Saiz has maintained that early retirements are being reduced and delayed retirements are multiplying “by two.” “The important thing is to bring the effective retirement age closer to the legal age,” she said, adding that any change in the retirement terms will be addressed through dialogue and within the framework of negotiation.

In terms of affiliation to Social Security, the head of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration has stressed that there are 330,000 foreigners who are contributing to supporting the public pension system, in clear support for migrants against “xenophobic messages.” launched, especially, in recent days after Congress agreed to process the Popular Legislative Initiative (ILP) for the extraordinary regularization of more than 500,000 foreigners in Spain -80,000 in Andalusia alone–, with 310 votes in favor and 33 in against Vox.

In relation to this extraordinary regularization, Elma Saiz has guaranteed that the Government will address the modification of the Immigration regulations seeking the “contribution of the autonomous communities” to “improve the situation” and promote an “orderly and safe” migration. The “challenge” is faced, in the words of the minister, “with human rights at the center of the debate.”

Regarding the European migration pact, the minister has described it as “good news” since it offers a “legal framework” that “we will apply with a humanistic character.” “If it had not been approved, it would have been a real failure,” acknowledged Elma Saiz, who recalled that the pact has been sealed after seven years of “intense” work.
