Workers can get up to R$10,000 with FGTS audit

Workers can get up to R$10,000 with FGTS audit

Workers with a balance in the employee severance compensation fund should be aware of the possibility of obtaining an FGTS audit of up to R$10,000. An employee who has always worked for the same company and has a good account balance will have more advantages.

While the STF does not decide the fate of the index that will implement the fund’s monetary correction, the review will be an alternative for the beneficiaries. Currently, the amounts in the FGTS accounts are adjusted according to the TR (reference rate) based on inflation. However, the factor is at a loss, because TR has been discontinued since 1999.

The review can reach up to 10 thousand Brazilian riyals

For those who have worked for the same company for years and have received higher salaries than those paid to the FGTS, you should seek a values ​​review. You can apply through the Employment Compensation Fund (FGTS) website, Caixa agencies, or through an attorney.

It is not recommended to audit for someone who has changed a lot of jobs, and does not have an account balance for a long time. For this person, the review will not be helpful.

The Federal Supreme Court (STF) already recognizes that TR (Reference rate) is unconstitutional and must be replaced, however, it will be necessary for the plenary to decide in favor of the worker.

With a zero TR mark, the workers, according to estimates, have already experienced a loss that could exceed R$300 billion.

While the STF does not decide on a new date to put the matter on the agenda, the worker remains hopeful that the TR will be replaced by another indicator, one of the most desirable indicators being the INPC (National Consumer Price Index) which serves as the basis for the minimum wage adjustment or the IPCA (National Broad Consumer Price Index). ).
