    The debate on the reform of the retirement system in Morocco is not new, and goes back to the late nineties. This study focuses on the Moroccan Pension Fund, considering the fact that the debates pertaining to the crisis in the retirement system have revolved around it. The most prominent reason for this crisis is financing the deficit in the military pension system, but also demographic factors such as rising life expectancy among Moroccans and shrinking fertility rates. This study will address the reform scenarios that have been proposed, including standard and structural reform.
