Caixa Econômica Federal begins this Saturday (21) another stage in the release of the extraordinary withdrawal from the Severance Indemnity Fund (FGTS) of up to R$ 1,000. Now, workers born in July can withdraw the amount.
The extraordinary withdrawal started on April 20th and the withdrawal date varies according to the month of each worker’s birthday. Those born in December are the last to be entitled to the redemption, which will be released from June 15th.
The next workers who will be covered are those born in August, with the release of the withdrawal from Wednesday (25).
Who is entitled and how to withdraw
Workers who have active and inactive FGTS accounts and resources available for withdrawal can withdraw up to R$1,000.
The FGTS withdrawal credit will be carried out in a digital social savings account, automatically opened by Caixa. To find out if you are entitled to the withdrawal, the worker can consult the FGTS application or the website fgts.caixa.gov.br.
After crediting the amounts, it will be possible to pay slips and bills, use the virtual debit card to pay in stores, websites or apps and make purchases in supermarkets, bakeries, pharmacies and other establishments by paying with the QR Code. These processes are done by the Caixa Tem app.
The amount can also be transferred to other bank accounts. According to Caixa, customers can also carry out transactions through Pix, in addition to making withdrawals at Caixa’s self-service terminals and lottery outlets.
The amounts that are blocked in the FGTS account will not be available for withdrawal, such as for guaranteeing credit operations in anticipation of the birthday withdrawal, for example.
The bank highlights that, if the credit of the amounts has been made and the account is not operated until December 15, 2022, the funds will be returned to the FGTS account, duly corrected and without prejudice to the worker.
Anyone who does not want the release of the R$ 1,000 can also use the FGTS application to inform Caixa.
