The process wants to change the way the balance of linked accounts is corrected each year. Since 1999, the monetary restatement has been 3% per annum, plus the reference rate (TR), which is not even enough to cover inflation.

If the Supreme Court decides in favor of the citizens, everyone with balance in FGTS accounts since 1999 will be able to receive up to R$10,000. This is just an average, as the actual amount depends on the length of contribution and wages received in the period.
The calculations were done by Tikal Tech, the company responsible for the LOIT FGTS platform. With it, the worker can calculate the value of his review for free, just with a simple registration.
To use the tool, access the fgts.loitlegal.com.br website and submit fund data (available on the FGTS website or app) indicating periods of operation since 1999. The platform quickly calculates how much you can get, even if you have already withdrawn resources in some stage.
