Agência Brasil explains: how to request a withdrawal of up to R$ 1 thousand in the FGTS

Next Wednesday (20), Caixa Econômica Federal will start releasing the withdrawal of up to R$ 1 thousand from the accounts of the Severance Indemnity Fund (FGTS). According to the calendar released a month ago, the release of funds will begin with workers born in January and continue until June 15, when those born in December receive.

The worker will need to be careful. Most of the approximately 42 million workers will receive the money automatically, in Caixa’s digital social savings account. However, in case of incomplete data that does not allow the opening of the digital account, the worker will have to request the release of the resources.

The entire process to request the withdrawal will be computerized. The worker does not need to go to the Caixa branch, just enter the FGTS application, available to smartphones and pillsand entering the requested data.

Another point that the worker needs to pay attention to is the withdrawal of money. The funds will be available until December 15th and will return to the linked FGTS account after that date, if the money is not spent, withdrawn or transferred to a checking account.

The amounts can only be moved through the Caixa Tem app, which allows the payment of domestic bills and the realization of virtual purchases in establishments that do not have an agreement. Caixa Tem also allows withdrawals from ATMs and transfers to a third-party account. Unmoved money will be refunded to the FGTS, with correction by the income of the Guarantee Fund corresponding to the period in which it was stopped in the digital savings account.


To find out if you will automatically receive the money, the worker needs to make an inquiry. The process can be done either in the local and in the FGTS application. THE local it only informs the release date and if the credit will be made automatically. The application has more features, such as consulting values, updating digital savings account data and requesting to undo the credit and keep the money in the FGTS account.
