Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Brazil raised all pensions that exceed the monthly minimum wage of 622 reais ($337) by 6.08 percent, according to a report published today in the Official Gazette.
The 2012 increase, which is equal to 2011 inflation as measured by the INPC index, applies from Jan. 1, the report said.
Those receiving the minimum payment received an increase of 14.1 percent, the government said in December.
