The allowance is paid to formal workers earning up to a minimum wage (R$2,424). The amount of the accrual varies according to the number of months worked with a formal contract in the previous year. With the minimum increase that came into effect at the beginning of this year, the amount ranges from R$101 to R$1,212.
Who has the right?
To receive the allowance, the worker must have been registered with PIS/Pasep for at least five years and have formally worked at least 30 days in 2020, with an average monthly salary up to a minimum wage. It is also essential that the data is properly reported by the employer in the Rais (Annual Social Information Report) or in eSocial, depending on the company category.
Workers associated with private entities and companies receive PIS in Caixa. People who work in the public sector are registered with Pasep and receive benefits at Banco do Brasil.
Last year, according to Caixa, which is responsible for PIS, 319,900 beneficiaries failed to recover R$208 million. The estimated total was R$17 billion for 22.2 million workers.
Banco do Brasil, responsible for Pasep, has set an appropriation of 2.7 million for the 2020/2021 fiscal year, totaling R$2.6 billion. But about 140,000 workers have not quit, which is a balance of R$95 million.
Unreceived benefits will be made available again in this next calendar, starting in February 2022. The Ministry of Labor and Social Security states that the worker is guaranteed the right to a salary bonus for five years.
Last year, the payment was suspended and pushed back to 2022, after the federal government decided to change the dates. Salary bonus transfers began in July of one year and continued through June of the following, because information on who is entitled to the benefit was standardized only in April.
The change occurred after a report by the Comptroller General of the Union (CGU) indicated non-compliance with this form, as the government divided the resource commitment (the first phase of spending, when there is recognition of the spending commitment) in two years. Source: R7
