How does the INSS benefit review work?

The INSS benefit review is subject to a specific period, which starts counting from the beginning of payment of the first retirement.

This period is ten years from the granting of the benefit. In 2024, it is essential to highlight that the deadline expires for policyholders who retired in 2014.

To understand better, the period starts to run from the first day of the month following the date on which the insured person received the first installment of the benefit.

For example, if someone started receiving their pension in January 2014, they will have until February 2024 to request a review.

It is crucial to highlight that the statute of limitations, that is, the loss of the right to review, applies both to reviews requested directly from the INSS and to reviews requested in court.

How do I request an INSS benefit review?

Those who wish to request a review of their benefit must present solid evidence that there was an error on the part of the INSS in the calculation.

The correction must initially be requested from the social security body, and the Court can be contacted if it is necessary to appeal the decision.

It is important to mention that, for legal actions involving up to 60 minimum wages or processes opened directly with Social Security, the presence of a lawyer is not mandatory, although it is advisable to have the support of a legal professional.

On the other hand, in cases where the INSS appeals to the Special Federal Court, it is necessary to appoint a lawyer within ten days.

In situations involving the common social security court, the assistance of a lawyer is essential from the beginning of the review process.

Retroactive differences and new documents

Beneficiaries who prove an error in benefit calculation and are successful in the review are entitled to receive retroactive differences, referring to the last five years before the request. These differences are known as "lags" and can represent significant value.

It is important to highlight that the deadline may vary for reviews in which the insured presents new documents during the process. Therefore, it is essential to gather all the necessary evidence to support the benefit review request.
