“Falso rumor sobre falta de dinheiro no INSS circula nas redes sociais”

A fake news has been circulating on social media in recent days, claiming that the Brazilian National Institute of Social Security (INSS) sent a letter to the Federal Government this year warning of a lack of funds to pay social benefits, such as pensions. This information is false, as the INSS issued the communication in December 2022, and the matter was resolved through the opening of an extraordinary credit.

It is important to clarify this false information to avoid any misunderstanding or unnecessary concern among the general public. The purpose of these outdated and out-of-context posts is to attribute a supposed collapse of the institute to the Lula government (PT). These posts already have millions of views on TikTok and can also be found on Instagram and Facebook.

The situation actually dates back to the government of Jair Bolsonaro, who faced difficulties in obtaining enough funds to pay for the Previdência social security system. After the alert issued by the INSS, Bolsonaro signed an extraordinary measure on 15 December 2022 that released R$7.5 billion to the institute.

The Ministry of Economy justified at the time that pension spending had unexpectedly increased in the last bimester of 2022, primarily due to the increase in analyzing INSS benefits. The special credit was approved by the Federal Audit Court (TCU), which highlighted that the situation was atypical.

It is worth noting that the news is not recent at all, as it was aired on CNN Brasil at the end of last year. A snippet of the program Novo Dia has been circulating on social media, giving the impression that the current government is responsible for INSS beneficiaries not receiving their benefits. However, this is fake news.

It is crucial to dispel this type of fake news in a timely manner to prevent them from being shared and viewed by a wider audience. In this case, the best way to combat disinformation is through the dissemination of accurate and reliable information, such as this article, which debunks the false claims about the INSS.

In summary, the INSS did not issue a warning letter to the current government about the lack of funds to pay for social benefits. The communication was released in December 2022, and the issue was resolved through an extraordinary measure signed by Bolsonaro. The fake news circulating on social media is outdated and out of context, seeking to attribute the difficulties faced by the institute to the Lula government.
