INSS intensifies aid inspection

Recently, the INSS identified an increasing number of frauds involving sickness benefit, with false documentation being presented to obtain the benefit.

This situation led the agency to adopt more rigorous measures, with the implementation of a new tool that uses artificial intelligence to analyze the information contained in the medical documents presented by policyholders.

How does the new inspection work?

The new INSS analysis tool compares data such as the doctor’s spelling and the number of certificates issued, looking for any discrepancies that could indicate fraud.

In other words: policyholders will need to be even more attentive to the accuracy and veracity of the information provided to the INSS.

The change mainly affects those who request temporary disability benefit, popularly known as sickness benefit.

The new enforcement policy may result in the termination of payments for cases that do not strictly meet established criteria, elevating the importance of a meticulous and transparent application process.

Therefore, in February 2024, many beneficiaries are terrified of the possibility of canceling payments.
