R$4,500 Extra Benefit for Retirees: Understand How It Works

Bill (PL) No. 341/2021 is under consideration in the National Congress, which provides for an additional premium covering insured persons from the National Institute of Social Security (INSS). The purpose is to financially assist body insurance policyholders who experienced losses at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Thus, the text states that three installments, each amounting to R$1,500, will be transferred for a total of R$4,500. Therefore, the amount will be a financial relief, whereby the beneficiaries will be able to pay off their debts with the amount.

The author of the proposal is Federal Rep. Allen Georgell (Republicans/Associated Press). In addition, the procedure is still on the way to becoming decisive. Therefore, the transfer of allowance is not authorized, as there must be a vote in the various committees.

Who is entitled to the additional INSS allowance?

Thus, if the supplemental allowance is actually approved in Congress, not all INSS policyholders will be covered, as the amount is for those hurt by losing their jobs during the pandemic.

Therefore, according to the text, for the entitlement to the allowance, the insured must fulfill the following requirements:

  • having been fired without good reason during the height of the epidemic;
  • Comply with the requirements of unemployment insurance stipulated in Law No. 7998/1990.

In this way, the rules of unemployment insurance relate to the length of stay in the job. Thus, the required period varies according to the number of times the citizen has applied for the benefit. paying off:

When was the unemployment insurance application filed? Required length of stay
First order Have worked for at least 12 months in the last 18 months before dismissal
second request Have worked for at least 9 months in the last 12 months before dismissal
Third order onwards To have worked in each of the six months preceding the dismissal

When will the additional allowance be paid?

In short, the text has so far received only a favorable opinion from the Committee on the Rights of the Aged.

Currently, discussions on liberalizing the overtime allowance are underway in the Committee on Labor, Administration and Public Service. Therefore, if approved, the text will be sent to the Committee on Finance and Taxes and the Committee on the Constitution, Justice and Citizenship, where it will also be voted on.

Finally, he moves on to the presidential sanction. Thus, the predictions are that the payments will be made in 2023.
