The National Institute of Social Security begins to pay, as of this Wednesday (25), retirement, pensions and aid in the amount of the new minimum wage, of R$ 1,302.

The payment date depends on the amount the insured earns and what the end of the benefit number is, without considering the digit. They receive first the policyholders who earn up to a minimum wage.

Those who receive more than the national floor will begin to have their payments readjusted from February 1st. For these policyholders, the increase follows inflation measured by the INPC (National Consumer Price Index), which stood at 5.93% last year.

As it is a holiday in São Paulo this Wednesday, policyholders from São Paulo will receive deposits starting on Thursday. According to the INSS, the 2023 calendar is valid for the entire national territory, but if a holiday prevents the regular operation of banks and financial institutions, the payment date goes to the next business day.

The payment date depends on the amount the insured earns and what the end of the benefit number is, without considering the digit. They receive first the policyholders who earn up to a minimum wage.

In order to know when the payment will be deposited, the insured must have the final number of the benefit card in hand, without considering the last check digit (the one that comes after the dash).

For example, in benefit number (NB) 123.456.789 -0, the final digit is 9.

For those who have been receiving the benefit for “some time”, according to the official statement from the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, the usual date applies. Look:

Monthly income of a minimum wage

Monthly income above minimum wage

On December 8, the INSS released the benefit payment schedule for the entire year of 2023. In all, there are more than 37 million insured persons covered.

Those who receive up to one minimum wage will start paying in the last week of the month, while insured persons with income above the social security floor will have their deposits started in the first week of the following month.

It is worth remembering that deposits are interrupted on weekends, national holidays and dates when banks do not operate.

BRL 1,302 or BRL 1,320?

The value of the minimum salary has been the subject of debate throughout the month of January, as the new government of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) studied raising it to R$ 1,320 after campaign promises.

However, the Minister of Labor and Employment, Luiz Marinho, told the CNN that there is no guarantee of change in the values ​​of the minimum wage.

“It is not guaranteed that it will change from R$ 1,302. It may be that we come to the conclusion that we need this value all year round. What is guaranteed is that there will be a policy of valuing the minimum wage and there will be an effort to change the possibility, if any, from May.”

The current value — published in an ordinance on November 11, still under the management of former President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) — represents an increase of R$ 90 compared to last year, including a variation of 5.81%, referring to the National Consumer Price Index (INPC) during the period from January to December 2022, in addition to a real gain of 1.5%.

According to an investigation by CNN policy analyst Caio Junqueira, maintaining the value at R$ 1,302 signals a gain in strength by the Minister of Finance, Fernando Haddad, in an attempt to avoid the readjustment, which would cause an increase of more than R$ 7 billion in public expenditure.
