Brazilians living in London may now withdraw their FGTS


Good news for Brazilians living in London: a new part of the Brazilian Consulate-General’s website provides a step-by-step guide for those who would like to withdraw their FGTS (Guarantee Fund for Length of Service, a severance indemnity fund).


Those entitled to make withdrawals are people who have had formal employment in Brazil and fall into one of the following categories: not been formally employed in Brazil in the last three years; not had any money paid into their FGTS in the last three years; lost their job in Brazil without just cause; worked a full period of a temporary contract in Brazil; received or receive a Brazilian retirement pension.


If you are interested and fit into one of the above categories, here’s what to do: go to the Consulate website, read all the information on the page about the new service, collect the necessary paperwork, fill in the request form, book an appointment and go the Consulate on the date of the appointment, with the necessary paperwork.
