PIS-PASEP: Salary Bonus can be paid to workers who are entitled to the benefit The Salary Bonus benefit of up to one minimum wage is paid annually to those who meet the requirements established by law.
Salary allowance is automatically paid annually to workers in the private sector and public companies who have received, on average, up to two minimum wages in the last 12 months. The benefit has a maximum value of one minimum wage. The payment date varies according to the employee’s month of birth.
In the 2020/2021 calendar, still in progress, 25,028,562 workers were identified as entitled to the Salary Bonus. Of these, 23,284,990 have already withdrawn, corresponding to an amount of R$19,307,981,482.31.
One of these workers is André Henrique Vogt Pariz, 38, who has been working as a pizza maker for ten years in the tourist town of Alto Paraíso de Goiás. He says that those who work in restaurants are facing difficulties and the money will help pay the bills. “It was a very difficult year due to the coronavirus, an atypical year, where family income decreased. So, this money will be welcome.”
A resolution published in 2019 determined that workers who did not withdraw their Salary Allowance will have a period of up to five years to do so.
