The worker who joined the withdrawal birthday will be able to withdraw money from this month. Caixa Econômica Federal has already started making the transfers.
Workers born in January can already withdraw the amount. Withdrawal can take place until March 31 of this year. This is because there is a 90 day period for a person to withdraw funds.
Birthday Withdrawal is a form of FGTS (Guarantee Time of Service Fund) that allows a worker to withdraw from the balance of FGTS accounts each year, in the month of his/her birthday.
But be aware, you will not be able to withdraw all the money at once. It is only possible to withdraw part of the balance available in the FGTS.
To access the Birthday Draw, you’ll need to access the FGTS app, the FGTS website, or Caixa Internet Banking. It is also possible to apply at the Caixa Econômica Federal branch.
The worker needs to know this when committing to a program birthday loot, it temporarily ceases its right to withdraw. The rule states that when you join a withdrawal birthday and suddenly lose your job, you will have to wait three years for the FGTS payments to be withdrawn. In this case, you are only entitled to a 40% fine to be evicted without a valid reason.
