Happiness and money in your pocket for those born in February
There is a redemption method for the FGTS (Service Time Guarantee Fund) that allows the annual withdrawal of part of the balance of active and inactive FGTS accounts.
The modality is called birthday withdrawal, and the worker can withdraw a percentage of the value in the month of the birthday, a gift to the CLTs.
To access this modality, you must join the birthday withdrawal through the official FGTS application.
All workers with an active or inactive account are entitled to the FGTS birthday withdrawal. This membership is not automatic, so it is possible to let the money accumulate in the account and the amount varies depending on the available balance in the account.
The balance redeemed varies according to the amount in the account, so the more money in the account, the higher the percentage to be withdrawn.
HOW TO ACTIVATE THE FGTS BIRTHDAY WITHDRAWAL?
According to the Caixa portal, when accessing the FGTS Application, the worker will be able to consult the amounts available for withdrawal. So, simply indicate an account at CAIXA or any banking institution to receive the amounts, free of charge. The amount will be available in your account after 5 business days.
The modality is unable to be used in the case of unfair dismissal, but as established, they continue to be entitled to the 40% termination fine paid by the employer.
