See the 2022 salary bonus payment calendar

This year, around 22 million Brazilians receive the salary bonus, with a total value of more than R$20 billion, according to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.

Private sector workers, enrolled in the PIS, will receive this year’s salary bonus from February 8 to March 31, through Caixa. For civil servants, military and state employees, registered in Pasep, the payment goes from February 15th to March 24th, by Banco do Brasil.

Traditionally, the salary bonus is paid in the year following the year in which there was a working day for 12 consecutive months, with each batch corresponding to the employee’s month of birth. Now the payment will be made in just two months.

According to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, historically, both identification and payment of beneficiaries were made by federal public banks, which was questioned by control bodies that recommended the separation of activities. Another recommendation is that payments occur in the same year.

“Seeking to comply with the recommendation of the control bodies, the federal government internalized the identification in the Ministry and started to have in real time and online the full control of the salary bonus policy, from the reception of data transmitted by employers, to the identification process. and payment,” the ministry explained.


Workers in the private sector with a checking or savings account at Caixa will automatically receive credit at the bank, according to the month of their birth.

The other beneficiaries will receive the amounts through digital social savings, which can be moved through the Caixa Tem app. If it is not possible to open the digital account, the withdrawal can be made with the Citizen Card and password at self-service terminals, lottery units, Caixa Aqui or branches, also according to the payment schedule staggered by month of birth.

The payment of the Pasep allowance occurs via credit in an account for those who are account holders or have savings at Banco do Brasil. Employees who are not BB account holders can make the transfer via TED to their account via self-service terminals and portal or at the branch’s cash desk, upon presentation of an official identity document.
