Jobs in Brazil now requires filling in more information about the individual applying for unemployment insurance. He must answer questions from different fields, such as academic and professional, to confirm that he is able to receive the benefit.

What if it goes wrong? In this scenario, you will have to wait 24 hours, until the next day, to be able to start the registration process from the first step. However, if the user is in a hurry or simply does not want to wait all this time, it is also possible to call 135 to contact INSS employees directly and be served.

With this possibility of applying for unemployment insurance online, the process becomes less bureaucratic and can be done directly from home, making it easier for everyone.
