INSS beneficiaries may miss payments

Initially, the INSS is in the process of notifying those born in the first months of the year, who need to prove that they are alive to continue receiving their benefits.

The good news is that, since January 2023, it is no longer necessary to go to the bank to prove your life. The INSS itself is responsible for checking the situation of policyholders, facilitating the process.

How does the proof of life happen now?

In short, the new rule says that the INSS must use databases from various bodies and institutions to confirm the lives of beneficiaries.

This means that, in many cases, proof of life will be done automatically, without you having to do anything.

However, it is worth paying attention: if the INSS is unable to verify your information, you will be notified and must take action to avoid blocking the benefit.

What serves as proof for INSS beneficiaries?

Since 2023, the INSS has simplified proof of life, accepting several activities as proof.

Now, for those who prefer the traditional method, it is still possible to provide proof of life in person at bank or Social Security agencies, presenting a photo ID.

What should the INSS beneficiary do if notified?

If you are one of those notified, don’t worry! You have several options to provide proof of life: via the Meu INSS app (Android: or iOS: at the bank where you receive the benefit or directly at an INSS branch.

Technology is in your favor! After all, it is now even possible to use facial biometrics on your cell phone to confirm that you are alive, bringing even more convenience to the process.

Small changes that make life easier

Avoiding unnecessary trips to the bank not only saves time but also contributes to your safety.
