O FGTS (Service Time Guarantee Fund) It is intended for Brazilian workers who carry out formal activities, that is, who work with a formal contract. O benefit has been made available this year in two modalities, the birthday withdrawal and the extraordinary withdrawal.
However, workers who receive the benefit may have a big surprise later this year when they receive up to R$ 10 thousand in their accounts.
Readjustment in FGTS values
Currently, the Federal Supreme Court (STF) is analyzing the possibility of reviewing the values of the FGTS. This is because the amount collected by the fund monthly from the worker’s account is readjusted based on the Referential Rate (TR) and not on the inflation index, which causes beneficiaries to stop receiving large amounts.
FGTS amounts are not readjusted according to the INPC since 1999. Therefore, the purpose of the action is to guarantee the readjustment of the benefit and reset the values of the last 23 years.
According to experts, workers who have been in formal activity since 1999 and benefit from the FGTS, may receive, if readjusted, the amount of R$ 10 thousand. Recent data indicate that about 100 million workers would be entitled to payment.
