Adjustment of the minimum wage and impact on the INSS 13th salary

One of the most awaited news by INSS beneficiaries is the adjustment of the minimum wage, which directly affects the value of the 13th salary.

In 2024, the government granted a 6.97% increase in the minimum wage, increasing it from R$1,320 to R$1,412.

In short, this measure represents financial relief for millions of INSS retirees and insured people, since the 13th salary is calculated based on the value of the minimum wage.

Anticipation of the 13th salary: changes in INSS policy

In previous years, the INSS chose to advance the payment of the 13th salary, seeking to alleviate beneficiaries’ finances in times of crisis, such as the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, in 2024, the government made a different decision. There will be no advance payment of the 13th INSS salary.

In other words, transfers will follow the traditional calendar, with the 1st installment scheduled for August and the 2nd in November.

This change in the anticipation policy could impact the financial planning of many beneficiaries, who were counting on the injection of resources in the middle of the year.

However, the good news is that, due to the minimum wage adjustment, the value of the 13th salary will be higher in 2024, which can help compensate for the longer wait for payment.

PIX: agility and ease in INSS payments

One of the new features that makes life easier for INSS beneficiaries is the adoption of PIX to pay benefits.

PIX is an instant transfer system that speeds up financial transactions. INSS started monthly payments through PIX, making the process more efficient and convenient for policyholders.

Payments began on January 25th, following a specific schedule. Beneficiaries who earn up to the minimum wage and have the end of NIS 1 were the first to receive.

The payment calendar will extend until February 7, catering to different groups of insured people.


In summary, the recent INSS announcements provide important information for retirees and beneficiaries, especially about the 13th salary, adjustments and PIX payment dates.

Although the anticipation of the 13th salary will not occur this year, the increase in the minimum wage and the agility provided by PIX are positive aspects to be considered.

Finally, INSS beneficiaries can now plan better to receive their benefits and take advantage of the increase in their earnings.
