This article intends to analyze the demographic transition in Brazil, especially, its most debated consequence in the current moment: the aging of the population. Around it, normative, theoretical and ideological arguments have been constructed, with the aim of regulating its consequences. In other words, population or, more specifically, its aging, has been incorporated into the political scene and has become the object of the confrontation of divergent political conceptions and interests. The debates in the political scene, independent of the academic construction of the arguments, do not escape the political and ideological dimension. The association of the debate on aging with social security brings together positions, not only on what would be a society with a more aged population, but also on the parameters that should be considered in the formulation of broader social security policies.
