The annual readjustment of payments aims to avoid losses in the purchasing power of policyholders. The INPC is one of the main measures of inflation in the country.

For the correction to be official, the government needs to publish it in the Official Gazette of the Union. To the G1, the Ministry of Labor and Welfare informed that “there is still no fixed date for the publication of the ordinance”.
