Neste trabalho apresentamos evidência sobre os efeitos da alfabetização de adultos na renda e probabilidade de empregos dos indivíduos. Os dados longitudinais disponibilizados pela Pesquisa Mensal de Emprego (PME) permitem controlar os efeitos fixos não-observáveis dos indivíduos gerando uma estimação mais robusta e consistente dos efeitos analisados. De modo geral, os resultados deste trabalho indicam retorno de 9,3% em rendimentos para indivíduos que se alfabetizam. Mostramos evidência que sugerem que esse efeito no salário se deve a acréscimos de produtividade e não por um aumento na formalização dos trabalhadores alfabetizados. Ademais, observamos que o efeito na renda é mais proeminente em certos grupos de indivíduos: mulheres, residentes de Salvador e pessoas entre 45 e 60 anos
