Many Brazilians benefited from the Auxílio Brasil Program in 2023. This benefit was created during the pandemic, during the Bolsonaro government. Before, families received Bolsa Família, which was made available according to the total number of family members and their income.
During the pandemic, the government decided to change the name of the aid and also increased the value, which became R$600. In this new aid, everyone could be entitled to benefit. However, the Brazil Aid was only in effect until December 12, when beneficiaries will receive the last installment.
For this year, 2023, the Lula Government announced that the benefit will be called Bolsa Família, as it was before. Families who are in extreme poverty will be entitled to Bolsa Família.
According to the Ministry of Citizenship, family groups that fall into extreme poverty have an income of R$105.00 or less. Families considered to be in poverty are those with an income of R$105.01 up to a maximum of R$210.00.
What is the value of the Bolsa Família program of the current government
As mentioned before, in 2023 the Antigo Auxilio Brasil will be renamed Bolsa Familia. Only the name has changed, since the value will remain the same, so the beneficiaries will receive R$600, and there is the possibility of requesting increases in this value according to the number of small children in the family nucleus.
The increase is R$150.00 for each child in the family up to 6 years old. In addition, the first benefit payments began on January 18.
Who can receive Bolsa Família 2023
Bolsa Família is a social program offered by the Federal Government to low-income or extremely poor families.
In the year 2022, families who can prove a monthly income between the values of R$105.01 and R$210 could receive the Brazil Aid. These families were considered to be in poverty. Families with per capita income of R$105.00 or less are considered to be in extreme poverty.
Therefore, in order to be able to receive the payment of the benefit, even being in the indicated income group, it is necessary that the family in question is duly included in the data of the government's Single Registry. To be included in the base, families must register at the CRAS closest to their residence or even at the city hall in their city.

What is the new aid payment schedule

If your card NIS ends, for example, with the number 1, the payment for January will be made on the 18th, and in February it will be the 13th, in March the 14th, and so on.
The card with the end of NIS 2 will be paid on January 19th.
The card with the end of NIS 3 will be paid on January 20th.
Will people who receive Auxílio Brasil receive Bolsa Família?
By December, 21.6 million families had benefited from the former Auxílio Brasil. Initially, all beneficiaries of the former Auxílio Brasil will continue to receive the Bolsa Família benefit automatically in 2023.
However, in the coming months, some beneficiaries may be reassessed, and new ones may be added. The program management will be responsible for reassessing registered families and inserting other families.
Since the Auxílio Brasil was implemented, technicians claim that the Cadastro Único was out of date. For this reason, estimates indicate that, due to the lack of this stricter monitoring, part of the beneficiaries of the Auxílio Brasil could be receiving it without actually being entitled to the benefit.
For example, there was an increase in the number of single-person families (of just one person), and technicians assessed that many beneficiaries divide families to receive the benefit twice, since there was no inspection.
