INSS retirees and pensioners will have something new in terms of payroll loans; Understand what the benefits are
Good news has arrived for retirees and pensioners INSS (National Social Security Institute). Currently, some beneficiaries will have more lenient loan terms with banks.
According to the Brazilian Agency, by a vote of 14 to one, the CNPS (National Social Security Council) approved the new interest limit, to follow the Selec rate in 2023, on October 11. It was the federal government itself that proposed lowering interest rates.
As the economy’s base interest rates fell from 13.25% to 12.75% during the year, interest rates on payroll loans also fell. Now, banks will charge a fee of 1.84% per month for these operations. Since August, the number has reached 1.91% per month.
The interest cap for payroll credit cards decreased from 2.83% to 2.73% per month. The justification for the reduction was a 0.5 percentage point cut in the interest rate, which was authorized by the Central Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (COPOM) in September.
Despite the approval, the financial institutions asked the council to suspend discussion on the new limits until the next COBOOM meeting, which should be held on October 31 and November 1.
