Banks will have to suspend payroll loan payments for 4 months

A Brazilian federal judge ordered banks to suspend all payments due on payroll loans extended to retirees for four months, citing increased medical expenses due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Judge Renato Coelho Borelli said retirees should have a four-month grace period on loan payments. The decision may be appealed.

The judge also ruled that banks should not pay dividends above the minimum required by law, duplicating a measure already taken by Brazil’s central bank.
