The Ministry of Social Security has informed, through a publication in the Official Gazette of the Federation, that the reduction in the maximum interest rate charged on salary loans for INSS retirees and retirees will take effect on Monday.

This measure was approved at a meeting of the National Social Security Council last Thursday (17) and sets out the following rules:

  • would be the limit of interest 1.91% for a traditional payroll loanwhich is deducted from the payroll;
  • would be the limit of interest 2.83% for payroll loans made via credit card.

According to Social Security Minister Carlos Lupe, if the Monetary Policy Committee (Copom) continues to lower the economy’s base interest rate, the CNPS may again lower the payroll deduction cap for INSS recipients.

“Together with the Ministry of Finance, Banco do Brasil and Caixa Econômica, we propose a rate of 1.91% for the Payroll Loan, and 2.83% for the Payroll Credit Card, with the reinforcement that if the next Central Bank meeting cuts the interest rate [Selic]we will meet to download again [teto do consignado]Luby said at the meeting.

The minister also commented on the decision on a social networking site: “The measure contradicts the recent base interest rate cut by the Central Bank and got 13 votes in favor and only one against.”

The representative of the National Federation of Financial Institutions (CNF) issued the corresponding vote.

Previous attempt to reduce

At the time, Banco do Brasil, Caixa Econômica Federal, and other private banks temporarily suspended offering such credit, stating that fees would not cover the costs of the operation.

The board then approved a “middle ground”, and the ceiling was set at 1.97%.
