More than 4 MILLION retirees are invited to take the INSS Life Test: subject to court!

Proof of Life is mandatory for anyone retiring through the INSS. And the penalty, for those who do not adhere to it, directly affects the benefit received.

A recent statement made in Jornal Nacional, presented by William Bonner, highlighted vital information for retirees and pensioners of the National Social Security Institute (INSS), regarding the famous Proof of Life.

With the modernization and simplification of procedures, more than 4 million beneficiaries are now called upon to confirm their existence in an innovative way, ensuring the continued receipt of their monthly benefits.

This advance represents a significant milestone since the change in rules in 2022, which transferred the responsibility for verifying the lives of its beneficiaries to the institution, beginning a new era of efficiency and convenience.

About Proof of Life Modernization

Historically, Proof of Life was a procedure that required retirees and pensioners to physically present at bank branches to certify that they were alive.

This requirement often represented an inconvenience, especially for those with mobility difficulties or who reside in remote areas.

The transformation of this process in 2022 came as a relief, introducing alternative and digital methods for carrying out proof of life, significantly facilitating the lives of beneficiaries.

More Practicality for the Beneficiary to Fulfill their Obligations

In 2024, the INSS took a step further, proactively starting to verify the existence of its beneficiaries. Using technological and digital means, the institution seeks to ensure that payments continue to be made without interruptions.

The Meu INSS application, for example, allows Proof of Life to be carried out in a simple and secure way, in addition to other forms of proof such as the use of biometrics in payroll loans and services in the Unified Health System (SUS).

The Importance of Compliance

Failure to complete the Proof of Life may result in significant consequences, such as suspension of the benefit.

The INSS adopted an active stance in the search for information that confirms the beneficiaries’ activity, including telephone contact via number 135, without charging fees, and, if necessary, home visits.

The suspension of the benefit occurs after a period of 60 days without proof of the beneficiary’s life, reinforcing the importance of keeping the data updated and responding to the institution’s calls.

About Challenges and Adaptations

The transition to a more digital and automated Proof of Life system brings with it challenges, especially for a segment of the population that may not be as familiar with digital technologies.

However, this change also reflects an effort by INSS to adapt its services to contemporary needs and behaviors, seeking to achieve greater efficiency and safety in processes.

There needs to be the interest of everyone involved

Adapting to these changes requires a willingness from both beneficiaries and the institution to face obstacles that may arise.

This includes providing resources and support to those who may encounter difficulties using new digital tools, ensuring that no one is left behind in this modernization process.

The announcement made by Jornal Nacional marks, therefore, not only an operational change in the INSS, but also a step towards greater digital inclusion of retirees and pensioners.

By simplifying and modernizing processes, the INSS seeks not only administrative efficiency, but also the guarantee that its beneficiaries continue to receive their rights with minimal obstacles, reflecting a commitment to the continuous improvement of the Brazilian public service.
