As the benefit corresponds to a very distant period, it is possible that legal workers have already retired or even died. In the latter case, the heirs or dependents of the holders will be able to withdraw the quotas.

To request the withdrawal of quotas, simply access the FGTS and follow the following steps:

  • Tap on the “My Withdrawals” tab and then on “Other Withdrawal Situations”;
  • Once this is done, select the option “PIS/Pasep” and indicate an account at any banking institution to receive the amounts.

Forgotten FGTS money

The Severance Indemnity Fund’s Forgotten Money Option (FGTS) is related to workers who have been unemployed for at least three years or who are working informally in the employment contract.

According to Law 8.036/90 of the FGTS, workers who have been for at least three uninterrupted years without registration in their portfolio and have a balance in the Guarantee Fund accounts can withdraw all available amounts in the accounts.

Therefore, if you have been unemployed or have not been registered for at least three years, the first step is to check if there is any balance available for you in the Guarantee Fund accounts.

To check the FGTS balance, the query is very simple. The user must download the FGTS application available for Android and iOS mobile phones, and then log in through the gov.br account and check the values.
