The INSS (National Institute of Social Security) begins today to pay the first installment of the 13th to retirees and pensioners who receive more than one minimum wage. The first to receive are those with NIS (Social Identification Number) ending in 1 and 6, and the calendar extends until May 6. (See full schedule below).
Beneficiaries who receive 1 minimum wage and have 6 as their final NIS number also receive today.
The second installment will be paid from May 25 to June 7.
It is the third year in a row that the 13th INSS salary is paid in advance, and not in August and December (first and second installments, respectively), as is usually the case. In 2020 and 2021, deposits happened earlier because of the covid-19 pandemic.
According to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, the payment of the 13th will inject R$ 56.7 billion into the economy.
What is the value?
The first installment of the 13th is equivalent to 50% of the amount paid to policyholders in the other months of the year. The exception is for those who started to receive the benefit after January and will have the 13th calculated proportionally.
The second installment is subject to the Income Tax discount to those who are obliged to pay. This year, all benefits up to BRL 1,903.98 per month are exempt from income tax.
Insured persons who receive a temporary disability benefit – the former sickness benefit – are also entitled to a smaller portion of the thirteenth, calculated according to the duration of the benefit. By law, policyholders who receive assistance benefits, such as Auxílio Brasil, are not entitled to a thirteenth salary.
How to consult?
The consultation of the benefit amount is available to all policyholders, through the telephone 135, the official website or the Meu INSS app.
When calling 135, follow the instructions, informing the CPF number and confirming some registration information to avoid fraud. The service is available from Monday to Saturday, from 7 am to 10 pm.
