Regarding Decree-Law No. 25967 of the AISS National Profiles, in order to get the maximum pension and the advanced pension, a worker must have reached 65 years of age (the same for women) with at least 20 years of contribution.

For early retirement, in the case of men the minimum age is 55 years with at least 30 years of contribution; and 50 years with at least 25 years of contributions for women. The anticipated pension is reduced by 4%, for each year that is ahead of the normal retirement age of 65 (Art. 1 of Decree 25967)

Notice that there are different pension formulas for those born between 1932 and 1946 and those born after December 31, 1946.
