Explanation: Really "jubilados" and "retirados" are synonymous, so possibly both were used to include regional differences in usage. As far as "pensionistas' are concerned, quite often they are retired; however, this group also includes those that are wards of the state, such as those with certain "challenges," etc.
Explanation: This is a sod- three ways of saying the same thing. Maybe you could use one or more of these suggestions. Maybe "those on state benefits" for pensionistas, as it could be understood to include people on disability or sickness benefit, though unfortunately also the unemployed, which I don't think is the case here. Good luck.
