Caixa Econômica Federal opens today (17) 772 branches for the payment of emergency withdrawals of up to R $ 1,045 from the Guarantee Fund for Time of Service (FGTS) to 10.8 million workers born in July and August. Service will be from 8 am to noon.
The list of agencies is available at www.caixa.gov.br/agenciasabado. You don’t have to arrive before opening hours. In a statement, Caixa clarified that all people who look for branches within the operating period will be served.
In addition to the withdrawal, it will be possible to transfer the amounts free of charge, through the Caixa Tem application, to another account, either from Caixa or other financial institutions.
One of the measures to aid the economy in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic, the FGTS emergency withdrawal benefits approximately 60 million workers with up to R $ 1,045, who received R $ 37.8 billion in total. All beneficiaries received the deposit in the digital savings account. The last batch, for workers born in December, was credited on September 24th.
Cash withdrawals and bank transfers of FGTS funds are still being made in staggered stages, according to the month of the worker’s birthday. Those born in November and December will be able to withdraw FGTS funds in kind from the next 31st.
