The Brazilian economy has not yet been able to recover from the problems faced during the coronavirus pandemic. Now, the answer to this situation is appearing in the inflation present in practically all products on the market and in other retail areas.
For this reason, it is expected that Brazilians are always on the lookout for possible extra payments. However, according to the government, there are more than R$ 500 million forgotten in bank accounts.
Currently, Brazilians have not withdrawn R$ 562 million. These amounts refer to PIS/Pasep payments. The amount reached that amount and ended up being accumulated because it was not redeemed by the workers when it was made available, as explained by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.
For people who don’t know, the Social Integration Program (PIS) is aimed at employees of private companies. Your payments are made through Caixa Econômica Federal.
The Public Servant Asset Formation Program (Pasep) is aimed at people working in the public sector. This modality has its amounts transferred by Banco do Brasil.
It is worth remembering that to receive the benefit, it is necessary to follow some requirements. The professional must, for example, have worked for at least 30 years with a formal contract during the base year.
In addition, your salary cannot exceed the mark of up to two minimum wages. The person also needs to be enrolled in the PIS/Pasep system for at least 5 years.
It is worth remembering that the maximum amount available is one minimum wage even if there are higher amounts in the Guarantee Fund.
