The National Institute of Social Security (INSS) has been calling policyholders since last month to carry out a “fine-tooth comb” on benefits for temporary incapacity, the former sick pay. More than 170,000 people who did not take the expertise in the past six months should receive a letter to schedule the forensic examination.
Upon receipt of the letter, the insured has 30 days to schedule assistance at the INSS or will run the risk of temporarily losing the benefit. The maximum period of response that the INSS gives is 60 days, definitively suspending the money immediately thereafter.

Here are some questions and answers about the disability benefit:
Why is the INSS combing the disability benefit?
The Institute wants to renew the list of beneficiaries who receive help because they have a disability. If the current insured does not pass the new skill, the benefit is cut. In some cases, this benefit can be converted to disability retirement, which is a range of permanent support.
And who will be summoned?
All beneficiaries of aid for temporary incapacity who did not undergo an expert examination in the last six months will be summoned by the INSS. The Institute will focus mainly on those who have been receiving the benefit for the longest time.
How will the call be made?
The INSS is sending letters to policyholders, but in some cases these notices can be made through the banking network, when the beneficiary is going to withdraw the benefit, for example.
I received the summons. And now?
If you are in the group called up for a new skill, the scheduling deadline is already counting from the day the letter was sent to your home. There are 30 calendar days to make the appointment.
Just visit the website “my INSS” and click on “Schedule Expertise”, or call 135, from Monday to Saturday, from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm.
I don’t want to schedule a new skill. What happens?
If you do not schedule the expertise within 30 days, the INSS suspends the benefit. In addition, without the review exam, you cannot access any other type of service in the INSS, such as medical expertise, for example.
After 60 days of no response, the INSS permanently suspends the benefit.
Can I reschedule the skill date?
Yes, it is possible to reschedule the examination date, but it will be necessary to justify the request, unless the INSS itself schedules a new service date due to early holidays, or strike, for example.
I went through the review, had my benefit cut, but I don’t agree with the decision.
The result of the expertise is available on the same day as the exam, always after 9 pm. If you were discharged and your benefit is suspended, you can appeal within 30 days.
