In effect since the beginning of March, the first phase of withdrawal of forgotten values in financial institutions ends this weekend. Today (15), people born after 1988 will be able to make the consultation. Tomorrow (16), there will be a repechage for those born after 1984 who missed the dates to schedule the withdrawal.
As of Sunday (17), the system will pause and undergo a redesign. Consultations will only resume on May 2, with new sources of forgotten resources included. Everyone will have to make inquiries again to see if they are entitled to new residual balances.
The withdrawal schedule can be done from 4 am to 12 pm. The process must be carried out in site Amounts Receivablecreated by the Central Bank (BC) to consult and schedule the withdrawal of residual balances.
After the withdrawal request, the financial institution will have up to 12 business days to make the transfer. The expectation is that payments made through Pix occur faster.
After the first round of consultations on the Values Receivable website, the Central Bank reopened the scheduling calendar. According to the agency, this occurred because financial institutions updated the information and released more amounts forgotten by account holders. The BC advises everyone to repeat the procedure, even those who have already rescued forgotten values or whose consultation indicated non-existent values.
Under the new schedule, the account holder will be able to schedule the withdrawal at any time on the informed date, instead of entering at times determined by the system. The new release dates are as follows:
