President Jair Bolsonaro vetoed this Thursday (2) a device which provided for the suspension of the proof of life requirement for INSS beneficiaries until December 31 of this year due to the pandemic. In June, Congress approved the bill that makes it easier to achieve proof of life. Parliamentarians can still overrule the veto. The information was published by Folha de S. Paulo.
Despite his veto on the suspension, the president sanctioned the part of the proposal that facilitates the procedure. The new rule determines that banks must use biometric systems to perform proof of life for beneficiaries; the procedure can be carried out by a legal representative or a lawyer of the retiree, legally registered with the INSS; and telephone calls made from landlines or mobiles to request these services will be free.
