The review of the entire life and other INSS pending issues, such as death pension for minors under guardianship and special retirement for security guards, promise to significantly impact the organization’s benefits.

Amidst the constant transformations in the Brazilian social security scenario, a series of pending issues at the National Social Security Institute (INSS) have aroused great expectations among retirees, pensioners and workers in general.

Among them, the long-awaited analysis of the "lifelong review" by the Federal Supreme Court (STF), scheduled for the end of February 2024, stands out. This review promises to reevaluate the way in which social security benefits are calculated.

Such a change has the potential to significantly alter the income of many Brazilians in old age, bringing new life to those who have contributed for decades.

Important INSS to-do list can benefit thousands of elderly people

At the heart of Brazilian pension discussions, a topic eagerly awaits definition: the review of one’s entire life.

Scheduled for judgment by the Federal Supreme Court (STF) at the end of February 2024, this issue has the potential to significantly change the income of retirees and pensioners.

In essence, the aim is to allow INSS policyholders to consider all social security contributions when calculating the benefit, breaking with the limitation imposed by post-July 1994 contributions.

This change, awaited for years, promises justice for many who have contributed throughout their lives.

Death pension and special retirement: current issues

Another point of heated debate is the right to a death pension for children and adolescents under guardianship, without legal guardianship.

The 2019 Social Security reform brought progress, but left significant gaps for this vulnerable group, raising questions about the effective protection afforded by the statute for children and adolescents.

Furthermore, the right to special retirement for security guards is also under the spotlight.

With the STJ already recognizing this right, including without the need to carry a weapon, the STF’s decision is awaited to consolidate legal security and guarantee adequate benefits for these professionals, fundamental in protecting the daily lives of cities.

Impact on work relationships: the case of app drivers

The Federal Supreme Court also addresses the issue of the employment relationship between delivery drivers and apps, such as Rappi.

This discussion transcends the labor sphere, directly impacting thousands of workers who seek recognition and rights in an increasingly digitalized and flexible labor market.

Discover more details from the Whole Life Review

In December 2022, the Federal Supreme Court (STF) decided, by a majority vote, that INSS retirees can use all of their social security contributions to calculate the value of their retirement, including those made before July 1994.

This decision, known as a lifetime review, opens up the possibility for thousands of retirees to receive a higher benefit amount.

The whole life review can be advantageous for retirees who:

They started contributing to the INSS before July 1994; They had high salaries at the beginning of their career; They had periods of low or no contributions.

To request a lifetime review, the retiree must:

Hire a lawyer; Find an INSS agency; File a lawsuit.

The deadline for requesting a lifetime review has not yet been defined by the STF. It is important to highlight that the INSS is appealing the Supreme Court’s decision, and the case can still be analyzed by the Federal Audit Court (TCU).

The whole life review is an important achievement for INSS retirees. It represents an opportunity for justice for those who have had their social security rights violated.

If you meet the requirements to request a review, contact a lawyer to learn more about your rights.
