Congress approved an opinion so that more civil construction workers have access to a pension (PL No. 487), since the current regulatory framework requires proof of at least 20 years of contributions, a fact that is detrimental to the workforce given the eventual and risky nature of the item.
In this sense, the years of contribution to a pension system were reduced to 15; of these, at least 72 months in civil construction. Applicants must be 55 years old.
“The construction worker is temporary, his work lasts as long as the work front for which he is hired lasts, and the premature old age caused by work on construction sites does not allow him to continue his work at an early age (…) for this reason he could not be required to 20 years of contributions as in other regimes”, specified the Federation of Civil Construction Workers of Peru (FTCCP).
