Rights and guarantees of Social Security and Assistance are preserved, says secretary

New Social Security

Deconstitutionalization was the subject of a public hearing in the PEC commission 6/2019 in the Chamber of Deputies this Thursday (30)

All the rights and constitutional guarantees of Social Security and Social Assistance will continue in the Federal Constitution, assured on Thursday (30) the special assistant secretary of Social Security and Labor of the Ministry of Economy, Bruno Bianco, in a public hearing of the special commission in the Chamber of Deputies . The theme was Transition and Deconstitutionalization of the Proposal of Amendment to the Constitution 06/2019, the PEC of the New Social Security.

In the text prepared by the federal government, only the rules of calculation and access to benefit will be deconstitutional. It is the same situation of the General Social Security System (RGPS), provided for in the Constitution but regulated in Complementary Law 8,123 / 91. "The deconstitutionalization is merit, is to bring to the Constitution the specific spirit of the constituent of 1988," explained Bianco.

Even with the amendment of the Constitution, if it is approved by deputies and senators, the Union will not have the freedom to change the rules without having to pass through debate and prior authorization of the National Congress. "It gives even more legitimacy to Congress with another rule model and another proposed rule. All changes continue to go through Congress, "he said.

Rules - In addition to changes in calculation rules and access to benefit, the government's proposal includes fairer contributions to workers, a balance between private and public service pensions, and stricter debt collection. The minimum retirement age will be 62 for women and 65 for men, both with the same benefit calculation rule.

New Welfare approval is important so that the federal and state governments can balance public expenditures and direct resources to areas essential to the population. In 2019, the Ministry of Economy's forecast is that spending on Social Security and Assistance consumes R $ 903 billion, corresponding to 64.8% of the budget of the Union. In the same period, the federal government will have R $ 35 billion for investments, R $ 132 billion for health and R $ 122 billion for education - a total of R $ 289 billion.
