FGTS has a withdrawal anniversary method that is offered to workers who can withdraw up to R $ 2,900 (depending on the balance in active or inactive fund accounts).
The withdrawal memory allows the worker to withdraw from the balance of the FGTS account (Guarantee Fund for Service Time), in the month of his birthday, for an amount of up to R $ 2,900, and this procedure is annual, and the employee will need to adhere to the method.
The draw can be made from the month in which you celebrate your birthday and up to two months after the issuance.
For those born in May, the deadline to join the Christmas Withdrawal and withdraw money from FGTS accounts is actually worth it.
Withdrawal at Christmas is not mandatory, however, those who join must inform Caixa Econômica Federal. When you choose the method, it will be possible to withdraw part of the balance of active FGTS accounts (current jobs) or inactive accounts (old jobs).
When requesting a birthday withdrawal, you will lose the ability to withdraw the entire fund in the event of a resignation. However, you may be able to reach a termination penalty of 40% on the amount deposited by your employer in the event of unfair dismissal, as well as the possibility of withdrawing from the purchase of your home, retirement, or serious illness.
