Financing by FAT (Worker Support Fund)

FAT finances unemployment insurance and obtains its resources mainly from PIS/PASEP. Its fundamental purpose is to provide temporary assistance to workers facing involuntary unemployment. This financial support plays a vital role in providing temporary income, helping to cover basic expenses while workers look to re-enter the job market.

It is important to note that the value of unemployment insurance is directly linked to the minimum wage. With the annual adjustments to the minimum wage, the value of the benefit is also recalculated, taking into account the remuneration during the previous employment contract.

Eligibility for Unemployment Insurance in 2024

To be entitled to unemployment insurance in 2024, you must be part of one of the following groups:

Workers with a formal contract and domestic employees dismissed without just cause, including cases of indirect dismissal.Formal workers with employment contracts suspended to participate in courses or professional qualification programs offered by the employer.Professional fishermen during the closed season.Workers rescued from conditions analogous to slavery.

However, it is important to highlight that the worker cannot have his or her own income nor be receiving other social security benefits, such as the Continuous Payment Benefit (BPC), to be entitled to the unemployment insurance amount. On the other hand, workers who receive a death pension or accident benefit are entitled to this benefit.

Calculation of the value of Unemployment Insurance in 2024

The calculation of the unemployment insurance amount in 2024 is based on the remuneration during the previous employment contract. To better understand, let's consider the following salary ranges:

For average salaries up to R$ 1,968.36, the benefit corresponds to 80% of this value. For salaries between R$ 1,968.37 and R$ 3,280.93, the portion exceeding R$ 1,968.36 is calculated, multiplied by 50% and adds R$1,574.69. For salaries above R$3,280.93, the benefit value is fixed at R$2,230.97.

It is essential to understand these rules and criteria when applying for unemployment insurance in 2024, as they may affect the benefit amount you receive. This financial support aims to provide relief during unemployment by helping workers cover their expenses while seeking new employment opportunities.

Therefore, unemployment insurance continues to be a crucial resource for Brazilian workers in times of economic difficulty, guaranteeing temporary income that helps maintain their lives while they face the challenge of unemployment and seek a replacement in the job market. With the information above, you are better prepared to understand how unemployment insurance will be calculated in 2024 and who it is available to.
