Policyholders who receive sick pay benefit and who were called by the National Institute of Social Security (INSS) at the end of September have until this Thursday (11) to schedule the medical examination.
The exam confirming the sickness allowance can be scheduled through the Meu INSS application, through the 135 Service Center or through the agency’s website.
The INSS made the call through a fine-tooth operation to investigate possible irregularities in the transfer of benefits. Therefore, the insured person who does not make the appointment will have the payment suspended. If the beneficiary does not respond after 60 days of suspension, the benefit will be cancelled.
