14th salary RELEASED next month? Extra payment from the Government may be on the way

Although the news about the 14th salary is exciting, there is still no official confirmation from the government about its release. It is important to remain cautious and monitor the progress of the proposals under debate.

The discussion about the implementation of the 14th salary for INSS retirees and pensioners captured national attention, becoming an issue of significant social and economic importance in 2024.

Initially proposed as a bill, this additional benefit has the potential to offer significant financial relief to millions of Brazilians who depend on their pensions to live.

Amid economic challenges and a post-pandemic recovery context, this extra payment generated expectations and anxiety among beneficiaries, awaiting approval from the Federal Senate.

The expectation for the 14th INSS salary in 2024

The debate on the payment of the 14th salary for INSS retirees and pensioners gains strength in 2024, an issue that has mobilized Congress and public opinion.

This benefit, proposed as a bill, aims to offer additional financial support to around 31 million Brazilians who depend on resources from the National Social Security Institute (INSS).

The Bill and its details

The 14th salary is thought of as an annual payment, intended to supplement the income of retirees and pensioners.

For those who receive up to a minimum wage from INSS, the additional amount would be equivalent to a minimum wage.

For those who earn above this, the benefit would include an amount proportional to the difference between the minimum wage and the INSS ceiling.

Current status of the project

To date, the proposal has not yet been approved by the Federal Senate, leaving payments without a date defined by the government.

The expectation is that, once approved, the project will go to presidential sanction. However, there is no expectation that the payment will be made in 2024, as some rumors have suggested.

And the 13th salary?

The thirteenth salary is a right for all workers with a formal contract in Brazil, including those working part-time, temporary, domestic and rural.

Retirees and pensioners from the National Social Security Institute (INSS) are also entitled to this benefit, which is paid annually.

The value is proportional to the length of service provided during the year, calculated based on one-twelfth of the salary per month worked.

To receive the thirteenth, you must have worked for at least 15 days in a month. The first installment must be paid between February and November, and the second by December 20th.

This payment is essential to guarantee additional financial support, helping with end-of-year expenses or any other need of the beneficiary.

It is worth mentioning that the 14th salary PL, if approved, will only be valid for INSS beneficiaries. Furthermore, Brazilians who do not receive social security payments will not be able to count on the benefit.

In other words, beneficiaries of the BPC (Continuous Payment Benefit) and Brazilians who receive Bolsa Família cannot count on the Christmas bonus.

According to the Ministry of Social Development and Combating Hunger (MDS), the Government has no obligation to pay the extra bonus to these groups. It is worth highlighting that Brazil is currently going through one of its worst fiscal crises.
