Agency Brazil/Marcello CasalProof of life becomes mandatory again after suspension in March 2020 due to the new coronavirus pandemic

O National Institute of Social Security (INSS) released on Monday, 5, the new calendar for the realization of the proof of life by retirees and pensioners. According to the federal government, 36 million people must prove they are alive every year. Those who do not provide assistance will have their benefit blocked. The service had been suspended since March 2020 because of the new coronavirus pandemic. The new schedule provides for proof by July 2022. Beneficiaries who should have proved they are alive in May and April of last year must do the proof this month. Proof of life can be done at the bank that the beneficiary has an account with the presentation of a document with a photo. It is also necessary to take your current account card or INSS card. The service can still be done by facial biometrics through the Meu Gov.br or Meu INSS applications. Proof by cell phone is only valid for users who already have their data registered. Whoever had the benefit blocked must go to the bank that has the account to regularize the situation.

The ordinance published in the Official Gazette of the Union (DOU) also determines changes in the evidence for those who have mobility difficulties or are over 80 years old. Retirees or pensioners who fit into these groups can request assistance at home, through a visit by an INSS server. The request can be made by third parties, through Central 135, through Meu INSS or other channels to be made available by the INSS, without the need to register a power of attorney for this specific purpose or for the beneficiary or interested party to attend a Social Security agency . “In the case of beneficiaries with mobility difficulties, the request to carry out proof of life through external research must be accompanied by proof of mobility difficulties, by means of a medical certificate or statement issued by the competent medical professional, in the same manner as the documents required to include a power of attorney for the purpose of receiving a benefit”, informed the INSS.
