Portuguese term or phrase:Unidade Previdenciária (UP)
Unidade Previdenciária (UP) - serve como valor indicativo para cálculo das contribuições e limite de alguns benefícios.
Explanation: The reference is to use of this concept in determining the amount of contributions and limits on benefits - it's probably a certain sum of money. Therefore I'm quite sure the reference is to the Social Security System (Brazil, anyway). In a country where the value of the currency changes, this is probably a device to express contributions in some indexed fashion (you contribute X UP and your employer contributes Y UP) and she gets __ UP in benefits every month.
