increase, anticipation and Lula's decision

The announcements about the 13th salary, such as an increase, anticipation and Lula’s promise for retirees, bring good prospects for workers, but there are still pending issues and uncertainties.

The anticipation of the 13th INSS salary has become a topic of great relevance and expectation among beneficiaries of the National Social Security Institute, especially given the challenging scenario imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Started in 2020 as an emergency financial support measure, this practice aimed to offer immediate relief to the most vulnerable families, particularly the elderly and people at risk.

As the calendar moves towards 2024, the continuity of this anticipation generates discussions and analyzes about its impacts on the domestic economy of the beneficiaries and on the Brazilian economy as a whole.

Anticipation of the 13th INSS salary in 2024: what to expect

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government adopted the measure of bringing forward the payment of the 13th salary to beneficiaries of the National Social Security Institute (INSS), aiming to especially support the elderly, a risk group in the face of the health crisis.

This practice, which began in 2020, generated expectations among beneficiaries for subsequent years, including 2024.

Context of anticipation

The anticipation began as a response to the need for financial support during the pandemic, with payments being made in the first half of the following years.

In 2023, under the management of the Lula government, the anticipation continued, injecting R$62.6 billion into the economy and benefiting more than 32.5 million citizens. This movement was largely positive, providing resources for emergencies and beneficiaries’ needs.

Expectations for 2024

As 2024 approaches, doubts arise about the continuity of this anticipation.

However, the INSS confirmed that, for 2024, the payment of the 13th salary will take place in the second semester, following a traditional schedule, with the first installment in August and the second in November.

The value of the benefit for those receiving a minimum wage will be R$1,412, marking an increase of 8.4% compared to the previous year.

Payment of the thirteenth salary is mandatory for all employers and must be made to all workers with a formal contract, including those on a part-time, temporary or domestic basis.

The value of the benefit corresponds to one-twelfth of the salary per month worked throughout the year. For those who did not work the entire year in the same company, the calculation is proportional to the months of service provided.

By law, payment must be made in two installments: the first between February and November and the second until December 20th.

This division aims to facilitate financial planning for both employers and employees, allowing for a more balanced distribution of financial resources throughout the year.

In addition to its economic aspect, the thirteenth salary has an important social function. It is a right that benefits millions of workers, contributing to the reduction of inequalities and the promotion of social well-being.

It is worth noting that the 13th salary must also be paid to public servants, in addition to INSS retirees. However, BPC (Continuous Payment Benefit) beneficiaries are not entitled to the allowance.

The same applies to those who receive Bolsa Família, according to the Ministry of Social Development and Fight Against Hunger (MDS).
