Judiciary Branch and Federal Government promote joint action to reduce judicialization of social security benefits

Reducing the number of disputes over social security rights that reach the courts led the main bodies representing the Union and the Judiciary to sign on Tuesday (20), at the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF), two commitments to promote actions that result in the dejudicialization of disputes related to social security rights and benefits. The president of the National Council of Justice (CNJ) and the Federal Supreme Court, Chief Justice Dias Toffoli, represented the Judiciary at the launching ceremony of the National Integrated Strategy for Dejudicialization of Social Security, the name given to the initiative.

The National Institute of Social Security (INSS) is involved in half (48%) of the new lawsuits in the Federal Justice. It is this branch of the Judiciary that many citizens turn to when the INSS denies social security benefits.
