The Lifetime Review is a lawsuit that asks for the inclusion of contributions made to the National Institute of Social Security (INSS) before July 1994.
It can benefit three specific groups of policyholders: those who contributed little after 1994; who won a little after 1994 and who won a lot before 1994.
The idea of the process is to review, recalculate and increase the INSS benefit of those who retired between November 1999 and November 2019. Retirement, then, would be calculated over the entire contribution period.

This is because retirement was calculated with 80% of the highest contributions to the INSS from 1994, with the real plan. The Social Security Reform changed the rule, and now the average of all contributions to the INSS is calculated – also from July 1994.
Thus, contributions prior to 94 do not enter the account, which can harm those who earned well and had a drop in income or did not contribute to the INSS after that year. The revision makes it possible to include these pre-1994 values and benefits those who retired after 1999 and have higher contributions to the INSS before 1994.
Policyholders who receive the following benefits granted after 1999 can apply for the right to a lifetime review:
– Retired by age;
– Retired due to disability;
– Special retirement;
– Retired by contribution time;
– Pension for death;
– Sick pay
To request a lifetime review, it is necessary to seek a lawyer specializing in review by the INSS and study whether the review calculation will be worthwhile or not. If you increase the benefit, just file a lawsuit requesting the review. For this, it is necessary to present:
– RG and CPF;
– Copies of receipts and/or payslips of the time;
– National Register of Social Information (CNIS)
– Letter of granting the benefit;
– Letter of concession and the calculation memory of the initial retirement benefit;
– Administrative Process (PA) of the benefit – can be requested in the my INSS or by phone 135.
