PIS/Pasep fund quotas are also available
Currently, Caixa Econômica Federal releases the withdrawal of the extinct quotas of the fund PIS/Pasep. In this sense, the amounts are being paid to workers who worked with a formal contract between 1971 and 1988 and did not redeem their respective amounts.
First, it is important to emphasize that approximately 10 million people should receive the amounts, which total approximately R$ 23 billion. According to information from Caixa, one of the reasons for the accumulation of money is that a good part of these beneficiaries have already retired or even died.

Workers can consult if they are entitled to the quotas of the PIS/Pasep through the website or app FGTS or at a Caixa branch. It is worth remembering that you will need to inform the PIS number to perform the procedure.

With regard to the withdrawal, if the worker has died, the right is passed on to his heirs or dependents. The withdrawal deadline will end on June 1, 2025, with no new chances for redemption. See how to make the withdrawal below:
For quota holders, the withdrawal can be made through the FGTS. Through the platform, it is possible to make the transfer to a current account. In addition, it is possible to make the withdrawal in person.
Withdrawals worth up to R$3,000 can be made at lottery outlets, Caixa Aqui correspondents and authorized terminals, using the Cidadão card with a password.
Finally, if the worker does not have the Citizen card or the amounts are greater than R$ 3 thousand, the beneficiary can go to a Caixa branch upon presentation of an official photo document.
For heirs, the withdrawal must be made at Caixa branches. However, it will be necessary to present the declaration of consensus between the parties and the declaration of non-existence of other heirs.
Finally, it will also be necessary to present a document such as a death certificate. In addition, the citizen must present a certificate or declaration of dependents; or inventories; or court permits proving the information.
