Resumen

Analizamos el efecto de una reforma paramétrica del régimen de pensiones de plena capitalización en Colombia sobre el margen intensivo de la oferta laboral. Aprovechamos un umbral definido por la ley para identificar el efecto causal mediante un diseño de discontinuidad de regresión. Encontramos que un sistema de pensiones que aumenta la edad de jubilación y las semanas mínimas durante las cuales los trabajadores deben cotizar para solicitar las prestaciones de pensión causa un aumento de alrededor de 2 horas en el número de horas trabajadas semanalmente; esto corresponde al 4% del promedio de horas trabajadas semanalmente o alrededor del 14% de una desviación estándar de las horas trabajadas semanalmente. El efecto es robusto a diferentes especificaciones, órdenes polinómicos y tamaños de muestra.
