Another proposals is that of financial support for pensioners to prevent them becoming at the risk of poverty. The social pact also forwards proposals to overcome inequality, particularly where females are concerned.

Agius said that in the transition into the employment world, these measures are needed so as to avoid an increase in unemployment.
