The federal government intends to change the rules of special retirement with pension reform to help solve the fiscal crisis in the states and gain support governors in negotiations with the National Congress. The goal is also to match the rules as much as possible throughout the social security system. They are framed in these standards officials dealing with risk activities or harmful agents, chemical and biological and, that is why, retire early. This group goes to inactivity with 15, 20 or 25 years depending on (as the risk), no age limit. Another category benefited are the teachers (child education, primary and secondary), that may require retirement in front of other workers, five years less (women with 25 years of contribution and 50 years old; men 30 years of contribution and 55 years old).

The federal government also wants action states. Among the initiatives, said one Planalto Palace interlocutor, is the need to review state laws military retirement (PMs and firefighters), which today only fulfill contribution time, no age limit.

To move these rules, the federal government expects to significantly reduce the costs of benefits in the areas of health and education, weighing the accounts of states and municipalities. One idea is to set a minimum age (above 55 years for men and 50 for women) combined with contribution of time (above 30 years). It is also a possibility to create more strict rules that require workers to prove that the activity is risk and justified early retirement. Today, several categories, including tax auditors, can in court authorization for the benefits with lower contribution of time. These actions should be sent to Congress in the wake of the pension reform, but through complementary bill.
