What this article covers:
What is PIS?
It is a program in which private companies make a monthly deposit of a contribution amount to an employee fund. A portion of this amount is offered to the employee annually as a salary bonus, being the responsibility of Caixa Econômica Federal.
How it works?
The PIS is deposited monthly by private companies and this amount is retained in the FAT (Fundo de Amparo ao Trabalhador). He is responsible for paying for benefits such as unemployment insurance and the salary bonus paid annually to employees, as a 14th salary.
How do I know if I’m entitled?
Private initiative workers who have been enrolled for at least five years in the program and who worked at least one month with a formal contract in 2020 (base year) are entitled to PIS. Another important criterion is to be present in the RAIS (Annual Social Information List), where employers send the necessary employee information to the government.
What is the value of the PIS allowance?
The value is calculated proportionally to the time worked by the employee in the base year. If he has worked every month, the employee receives the maximum amount, corresponding to the national wage floor. Otherwise, simply multiply the current minimum wage by the number of months worked during the base year and divide by 12.
