The Federal Government has just announced the release of the FGTS Fund Anniversary Withdrawal Calendar for 2024. According to the published schedule, withdrawals will be made according to the worker's date of birth.
This rule means that shareholders born in January can now withdraw the amount corresponding to the interest. Let's understand more about how the FGTS Birthday Draw works.

How does the FGTS Birthday Draw work?
The FGTS Birthday Withdrawal Method allows workers who have adhered to this format to withdraw an annual portion of the balance from their FGTS accounts, always in their birthday month.
On the other hand, if there is a dismissal, the current rule only allows them to receive a severance penalty. It is important to note that withdrawing the Christmas Draw means giving up the Termination Draw, whereby a worker, upon dismissal from the company without just cause, has the right to withdraw the entire amount available in his or her FGTS account.
New proposal regarding Christmas withdrawal
The Department of Labor is proposing a change to this rule. With the new proposal, workers who choose the Christmas withdrawal method could also have the option to withdraw the full balance of their FGTS accounts, meaning they will no longer be limited to withdrawing the termination penalty.
This change remains on the agenda, but will undoubtedly be a major development for workers who choose to opt out of the FGTS birthday.
The changes proposed by the Ministry of Labor are continuing to be evaluated and, once approved, will be made public. Meanwhile, workers who opted out for Christmas can follow the published calendar for next year and plan their finances based on this feature.
