How to check your INSS benefit

Firstly, the Meu INSS app (Android: or iOS: is the key tool for checking benefit approval. With it, you can easily check the status of your request.

After logging in with the same data used to request the benefit, select the "Consult Requests" option.

This allows you to check whether the benefit was approved and obtain detailed information about the process.

Consultation over the phone

In addition to the application, INSS provides the number 135 for telephone assistance. This line is open from Monday to Saturday, from 7am to 10pm.

When calling, it is important to have your CPF on hand to facilitate identification. Through this center, it is possible to find out the benefit number and obtain detailed information about the approval process.

Benefit denied? Know what to do

Now, if your benefit is denied, don’t be discouraged. It is crucial to understand the reason for the denial, which may be related to incomplete documentation or other factors.

In this case, it is possible to appeal the INSS decision, following the guidelines provided by the institute.

Staying informed about changes in legislation and procedures is also important.

INSS is increasingly investing in digital

The digitalization of INSS services represents a major advance in the accessibility and efficiency of the Brazilian social security system.

Retirement rules in 2024

In 2024, retirement rules in Brazil continue to follow the guidelines of the 2019 Pension Reform.

This includes the minimum retirement age requirement, 62 years for women and 65 years for men, in addition to a minimum contribution time of 15 years for women and 20 years for men.

For retirement based on contribution time, the points rule (sum of age and contribution time) is applied, with 89/99 points for women/men.

The transition rule also remains in force for those who were already in the job market before the reform.

Benefits for seniors from INSS

In short, the INSS offers several benefits for the elderly, including old-age retirement and the Continuous Payment Benefit (BPC).

Retirement by age is granted from the age of 62 for women and 65 for men, with at least 15 years of contribution.

The BPC is aimed at seniors aged 65 or over who live in a situation of social vulnerability, with a per capita family income of less than a quarter of the minimum wage.

This benefit does not require a prior contribution, but it is necessary to be registered in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government.

13th INSS salary will not be anticipated

This year, INSS beneficiaries will not receive an advance on their 13th salary, a change compared to previous years.

Historically, the federal government has advanced the first installment of the 13th to retirees and pensioners during the first half of the year, mainly as an economic stimulus and financial support measure at critical times, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, in 2024, the payment of the 13th salary will be made on the traditional dates, that is, the first installment in August and the second in November, following the regular INSS payment schedule.
