Ms. Tellez noted key aspects of the procedure and the implications for those who wish to retire after making the gender change. She also commented that there are still areas to regulate regarding access to the old-age pension for transgender people, but the ruling of the Constitutional Court opens the door for their pension rights to be examined under the conditions established for the gender with which they are self recognize.
