Caixa Econômica Federal pays today (24) the November installment of Auxílio Brasil to beneficiaries with a Social Registration Number (NIS) ending in 6. This is the fourth installment with a minimum amount of R$ 600, which will be in effect until December, as per constitutional amendment enacted in July by the National Congress.
Unless a new proposed amendment to the Constitution (PEC) is approved, the minimum amount of the Brazil Aid will return to R$400 in January. On the 16th, the vice-president-elect, Geraldo Alckmin, delivered a PEC to Congress, providing for an exception of R$ 175 billion in the federal spending ceiling, which would allow the maintenance of the amount at R$ 600 and the payment of an extra R$ 150 families with children up to 6 years old. The program would be renamed Bolsa Familia.
The constitutional amendment approved in July released the inclusion of 2.2 million families in the Brazil Aid. As a result, the total number of beneficiaries rose to 20.2 million this semester. Traditionally, the dates of the Auxílio Brasil follow the Bolsa Família model, which paid in the last ten working days of the month.
The beneficiary will be able to consult information about payment dates, the amount of the benefit and the composition of the installments in two applications: Auxílio Brasil, developed for the social program, and Caixa Tem, used to monitor the bank’s digital savings accounts.
Auxílio Brasil has three basic benefits and six supplementary ones, which can be added if the beneficiary gets a job or has a child who excels in sports, scientific or academic competitions
Families with per capita income of up to R$100, considered in extreme poverty, and up to R$200, in poverty, can receive extra benefits.
Agência Brasil has prepared a question and answer guide about the Brazil Aid. Among the doubts that the beneficiary can resolve are the criteria for joining the social program, the nine different types of benefits and what happened to Bolsa Família and emergency aid, which were in effect until October last year.
This month there is no payment of Gas Aid, which benefits families registered in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government (CadÚnico). As the benefit is only granted every two months, the payment will return in December.
You can only receive the Gas Allowance if you are included in the CadÚnico and have at least one family member who receives the Continued Provision Benefit (BPC). The law that created the program defined that the woman responsible for the family will have preference, as well as women victims of domestic violence.
