Estimated reading time: 4 Minutes
According to a survey conducted by Serasa in partnership with Pan Bank which was released last Tuesday (7), many Brazilians do not know how to check the balance of the Severance Compensation Fund (Fundo de Garantia do Tempo de Serviço) (FGTS).
The survey was conducted in April with about 2,000 people. The survey shows that the majority of workers (92%) know what FGTS is and know that the acronym stands for Fundo de Garantia do Tempo de Serviço. However, when asked about the way to query the balance and withdraw, the percentage of citizens who say they know how to proceed was lower.
Also according to the survey, eight out of ten workers (84%) are aware that a FGTS balance can be traced back and six out of ten (62%) know how much they have in their fund. Roughly, this means that 16% did not know that it was possible to check the balance of the FGTS and 22%, although they knew, had no idea how much their balance was, and therefore, 38% did not know how much it is currently worth.
Among those who claimed to know how much balance they had in their fund, the majority (51%) claimed to have an amount between R$1,000 and R$5,000.
