What is needed to make the FGTS calamity withdrawal?

Caixa Econômica Federal (CEF) informed that the FGTS calamity withdrawal is a modality permitted in individual, urgent and serious situations, triggered by natural disasters that affect the worker’s residential area.

This includes events such as floods, hail, storms and extratropical cyclones, as long as the federal government recognizes the emergency or state of public calamity.

In the case of Porto Alegre, the federal government has already recognized the emergency situation, which paves the way for Caixa’s possible authorization for withdrawals.

It is also important to highlight that the profile of beneficiaries who will have access to these resources has not yet been defined, generating expectations among the local population.

Withdrawal deadline and limit

Once authorized, residents of Porto Alegre will have a period of up to 90 days to make FGTS withdrawals. The maximum amount available for withdrawal will be up to R$6,220.00, depending on the balance available in the FGTS account at the time of the request.

However, it is important to highlight that the definition of beneficiaries is still pending. The Municipal Secretariat for Planning and Strategic Affairs (SMPAE) is working on preparing the necessary documents for Caixa, including a description of the areas affected by the recent storm.

How to request the FGTS calamity withdrawal?

To request the FGTS calamity withdrawal, workers must follow a few simple steps:

First, access the FGTS application or the Caixa Econômica Federal website. Then, log in with your CPF and password. Select the option "My withdrawals". Choose "Other withdrawal situations". Choose "Calamity withdrawal". Fill in the form with all the requested information. Make sure to include documents that prove the emergency or state of public calamity. Submit the request.

Soon after completing these steps and approving the procedure, Porto Alegre will be included in the list of municipalities regularly updated by Caixa on the internet.

This is an essential step to ensuring that residents have access to the resources they need in times of need.

Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to stay up to date with updates on FGTS withdrawals in Porto Alegre and be prepared to request yours if you meet the defined requirements.
