As of today (15), around 3.3 million workers born in December will receive up to R$ 1,000 from the Severance Indemnity Fund (FGTS) accounts. Caixa Econômica Federal will deposit the money in the digital savings account, used for the payment of social and social security benefits.
With the December batch, Caixa concludes the payment of the extraordinary FGTS withdrawal, which benefited close to 42 million people. The new round of looting was announced by the government in March to stimulate the economy and provide a helping hand for workers after the worst phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The amounts can only be moved through the Caixa Tem app, which allows the payment of domestic bills and the realization of virtual purchases in establishments that do not have an agreement. Caixa Tem also entitles you to withdraw cash from ATMs and transfer to a third-party account.
The worker needs to be careful. Most are getting the money automatically in Caixa’s digital social savings account. However, in case of incomplete data that does not allow the opening of the digital account, the person will have to request the release of the resources.
The entire process to request the withdrawal is computerized. The beneficiary does not need to go to a Caixa branch, just enter the official FGTS application, available for smartphones and tablets, and enter the requested data.
The application is giving the option for the worker to apply for credit in any checking or savings account from any bank. The possibility, however, is only valid for those who agree to provide a photo of an official document with a photograph to register the biometrics.
The calendar was released in March. The release of resources followed a timeline based on month of birth. The money was released in stages between April 20 and today.
Another point that the beneficiary needs to pay attention to is the withdrawal of money. The funds will be available until December 15th and will return to the linked FGTS account after that date, if the money is not spent, withdrawn or transferred to a checking account.
Unmoved money will be refunded to the FGTS with correction by the income of the Guarantee Fund corresponding to the period in which it was stopped in the digital savings account.
To know if you will automatically receive the money or if you will need to request the withdrawal, the person needs to make an appointment. The process can be done through the FGTS application. The tool informs the release date and whether the credit will be made automatically. The application also allows the consultation of amounts, updating of digital savings account data and the request to undo the credit and keep the money in the FGTS account.
