Workers with Employment Compensation Fund (FGTS) credit should stay in touch, and there is a chance of getting R$10,000 through the FGTS review. The advantage will be greater for those who have worked in the same company for many years and have a good balance in their account.
A good solution can be revision, while TR (Reference Rate) is used for monetary correction of the FGTS balance. Changing TR to a better indicator depends on the decision of the Supreme Court (STF).
FGTS review can be up to R$10,000
For workers who have been able to keep the same job for years and have had excellent salaries greater than those paid to the FGTS, they should request a trustee audit. There are two ways to apply, one through the fund’s website, Caixa agencies, or through an attorney to file a lawsuit.
A review of the FGTS will not be useful to a worker who has changed jobs often and has not had a balance on his account for a long time.
The STF has already decided that the TR is unconstitutional, but needs to decide to replace it with another indicator that tracks inflation, since the reference rate has done harm to the worker, being zero since 1999. According to the information, the loss of workers is already up to 300 billion Brazilian Real.
After postponing the decision in May of this year, the Supreme Council did not set a new date for settling the case. Experts believe that the best thing is to change the TR to the INPC (National Consumer Price Index).
The values that can be readjusted are those that were deposited into the Employment Term Guarantee Fund (FGTS) accounts between 1999 and 2021.
will be entitled to FGTS review Each worker performed some activity with an official contract, even for those who had already withdrawn funds, because even before the balance was withdrawn, there were losses due to the correction of the reference rate (TR) without inflation.
