The federal government published, on Monday (8), the decree that regulates Auxílio Brasil, a program that starts to be paid next Wednesday (17), and intends to replace the already extinct Bolsa Família.

At the base, the new program intends to serve the same audience as the previous one: the Brazilian population in extreme poverty and poverty. However, the cutoff values ​​for the groups have been updated.

While the first rises from R$89 to R$100; the second, from R$178 to R$200.

But this was not the only metric changed in the new program of President Jair Bolsonaro (no party) compared to that of former President Lula (PT), who would turn 19 in 2022.

The average benefit ticket also rose from R$ 190 to R$ 217.18 – but the government plans to reach R$ 400.

The federal government intends to support the PEC dos Precatórios, which is being voted on this Tuesday (9) by the Chamber of Deputies in the second round. The proposal makes the spending ceiling more flexible, which would help to increase the value of Auxílio Brasil.

If approved by the Chamber, the text still needs to go through the Senate.

And, by December, the Aid should be extended to 17 million families, or around 50 million Brazilians.

According to the Ministry of Citizenship, in November, around 14.6 million families will benefit – the same amount as Bolsa Família.

See below the benefits of the ‘basic core’ of Auxílio Brasil:
