Who is entitled to the PIS/Pasep allowance
The professional who worked with a formal contract or in a public body for at least 30 days, consecutive or not, in the base year of payment. In addition, you must be registered in the program or in the Cnis (National Registry of Social Information) for at least five years.
It is also necessary to have received up to two minimum wages, on average, as monthly remuneration in the base year. The data must have been correctly reported by the employer (legal entity or government) in Rais (Annual Social Information Report) or in eSocial.
Pay is proportional to the months worked
Payment of PIS/Pasep is proportional to the number of months worked in the base year. The calculation considers 1/12 of the minimum wage valid on the date of payment, multiplied by the number of months worked in the corresponding year, rounded up, according to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.
If the beneficiary worked all year, he/she receives the full amount. If you worked one month, you will receive R$ 101. Fractions of 15 days or more are considered 30 days.
