@Sid1701d9: for whatever it's worth, I have none of Get to Work, Dine Out, Get Famous, or Jungle Adventure, and I'm still seeing the issue.

How often does the bug occur? Every time

What is your current game version number?  1.52.100.1020 

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All, latest is island living

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create new sims in 1.52.100.1020 in a tutorial, then filled a goal of Fabulously Wealthy to get Shrewd rewards, Noted: I did keep change aspiration to filled other goal time to time.

What happens when the bug occurs? Everytime I try with Sim child to grew up and filled that goal as well.

What do you expect to see? Sims receiving their Shrewd trait money every week on day they filled a fabulously Wealthy.

Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? No, I do not want mod and never use mod, I want a official clean fix, please

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? I just return to play Sims 4 while ago since 1.52.100.1020 with island living and I had all other expansion, game pack, and stuff packs installed. 

I like this reward to free from sims job but can't because it's won't gave income on based of your household fund weekly and been many weekly in the sims games, not once.

This was working for me until the last "maintenance" patch before "Island Living". 

Tested with and without CC, I did use cheats to get the simoleans to complete the achievement in testing. Not all that difficult to get cash in Sims 4 so I only just noticed this wasn't working for me.

Product: The Sims 4 Platform:PC

Which language are you playing the game in? English

How often does the bug occur? Every time

What is your current game version number?  1.53.115.1020 

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Take sims out of neighbourhood (i.e. needs a loading screen). Going to school or work while still at home lot doesn't bug the trait I don't think.

What happens when the bug occurs? Shrewd trait doesn't give weekly investment money

What do you expect to see? Shrewd trait giving the 5% money from the fabulously wealthy aspiration each week

Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes, but I have had the same result with and without, after clean reinstall and with new save

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Happened since maybe patch 1.48 or so, not sure about previous versions

 

 

As stated above, through trial and error it happens to me if I take a sim to a different neighbourhood. It stuffs the trait for the whole household, i.e. anyone that has or gets the trait is also affected. I don't know about other households in the same save since I tend to only play one per save. Clean reinstall fixes the save file until I take them out of the neighbourhood again.

I have/had this problem as well, though I've only had one sim earn the Shrewd trait recently. He earned it as a YA if I remember correctly, and lived his entire life since without one single Shrewd payment. He is deceased in that save. Not sure if my save will be useful, as I've only had the one so far (though I have another close to earning it) and I had to move them to a new save due to some other issues in the save. I may still have a backup of the original save, but I'm not sure.

 

If either save is useful in figuring this out, let me know. Not sure what data transfers and all that. But I'd be more than happy to share them if they will help!

I'm having the same issue on PS4. I have every single add-on, game pack, expansion pack, stuff pack, etc. that exists for the PS4 version of the game. I also have the latest update (version 1.17). I started a brand new game about a week ago and achieved the shrewd trait for my main Sim yesterday. He has since completed a few in-game weeks without having received any money. I know this trait used to work on the PS4, as I had achieved it for every member of a 4-adult household and every one of them brought in their share of profit ever game week. The only thing I have done that I had not done in previous playthroughs was to complete the Hero of Stangerville aspiration, although I completed it the Fabulously Wealthy aspiration first and still did not see any of my Sim's investments come through.

All I could find was: traits adds hidden Invested buff, buff adds Interest Check Timer commodity, once commodity decayed (after 7 days) another buff (Give Interest Check) comes into action which resets the timer to max and adds some money to your household. There's nothing removing the GIC buff afterwards but maybe this isn't even neccessary. Might someone check where this process gets stuck (using mods)?
