The Values ​​Receivable System (SVR), of the Banco Central (BC)has around R$7.5 billion still available for redemption, according to data referring to October 2023. The service allows individuals and legal entities to check if they have any money “forgotten” in financial institutions.

Of the total available, around R$6 billion are amounts from individuals and around R$1.5 billion are from legal entities. The majority of account holders (31,390,932) have amounts of up to R$10 to redeem; 12,813,948 account holders have amounts between R$10.01 and R$100; 4,806,330 have between R$100.01 and R$1,000; and 835,394 account holders have more than R$1,000 to receive. Beneficiaries with receivables in more than one value range are counted more than once.

The Receivable Values ​​System has already returned R$5.3 billion until October last year. The Central Bank warns that all system services are completely free and the population should not make any type of payment to access the values. The agency also says that it does not send links or contact you to discuss amounts receivable or to confirm personal data.

“Only the institution that appears in the Receivable Values ​​System can contact you and it will NEVER ask for your password. DO NOT click on suspicious links sent by email, SMS, WhatsApp or Telegram”, he states.

How to consult and redeem

The only website where it is possible to consult the Values ​​Receivable System and find out how to request the redemption of money, including from deceased people, is the https://valoresareceber.bcb.gov.br.

To check whether the person or company has any amount to receive, you must have the CPF it’s at date of birth or the CNPJ it’s at company opening dateresa. If there is any money to be redeemed, you must log in to the gov.br account – for individuals, the gov.br account must be silver or gold level; for legal entities, it must be a gov.br account with the CNPJ linked (any type of link, except Employee).

When accessing the system, it is necessary to read and accept the Term of Acknowledgment and the user will be able to see on the screen:

  • the amount to be received;
  • the name and contact details of the institution that must return the amount;
  • the origin (type) of the amount to be received;
  • and more information about the amount to be received, when applicable.

To request the redemption of amounts through the Central Bank system, you must have a registered Pix key. Request redemption and keep the protocol number. You can also view and share the receipt. If you do not have a Pix key, the user will need to contact the institution to arrange how to receive it – or create a Pix key and then return to make the request.

In the case of recovering values ​​from a deceased person, it is necessary to log in with the gov.br account of the user accessing the system, not the account of the deceased. You must be an heir, executor, executor or legal representative to access the deceased person’s data, in addition to reading and accepting the Term of Responsibility for consulting third-party data. Afterwards, the individual must ask the institution directly about the documentation they need to present to receive the amount from the deceased person.
