FGTS withdrawal in 2023

The FGTS Annual Withdrawal Scheme was launched in 2020, and allows employees to withdraw up to 50% of the balance deposited in the active and inactive accounts of the Guaranty Fund. Withdrawals are issued monthly according to the employee’s birthday. Withdrawals can be made within 3 months.

The withdrawal of the FGTS on his birthday is considered a profitable method, but he was the subject of questioning by Minister Luis Marinho. According to him, this method should be terminated in order to preserve the savings of the worker and ensure the real utilization of the balance of this severance compensation fund.

Rescue in January

According to the schedule established by the Caixa Econômica Federal (CEF), the withdrawal of the FGTS will begin with the birthdays of January 2023. This group of workers is already authorized to start the withdrawal from Monday 2 March.

The January FGTS Birthday Draw will be available until the 31st of this month. Another eligible group is formed by workers born in December and they can opt out until February 28th.

What do I have to do to receive the anniversary swag?

Citizens must follow the general rules of the program to redeem the amount in their month of birth. Next, it is important to know what balances have been credited to your account. It is important to note that in this form, workers cannot recover their FGTS even if they have been fired without good reason.

The FGTS Anniversary Draw is valid for two years, which means that during this period, you will not be able to change your FGTS withdrawal form. However, an employee who opted out on his birthday is still entitled to a termination penalty of 40% of the amount paid to the fund, if he is dismissed without good cause.
