What will change?

The objective of President Bolsonaro and his team is to increase the number of beneficiaries and the average payment amount, which currently stands at R$192. The chief executive has already said that the new program would be R$300. For this, new benefits will be created:

  • Early Childhood Benefit: aimed at families with children between zero and 36 months of age;
  • Family Composition Benefit: aimed at families with young people up to 21 years of age;
  • Benefit for Overcoming Extreme Poverty: financial supplement for families who receive benefits, but even so, the per capita family income does not exceed the extreme poverty line;
  • Junior Scientific Initiation Scholarship: 12 monthly installments paid to Auxílio Brasil beneficiary students who present good performance in academic and scientific competitions;
  • Child Citizen’s Allowance: benefit paid to heads of households who find a job and cannot find a place in day care centers to leave their children aged 0 to 48 months;
  • Rural Productive Inclusion Aid: paid for up to 36 months to family farmers registered in the CadÚnico (Single Registry);
  • Urban Productive Inclusion Aid: for Brazil Aid beneficiaries who can prove that they have a formal job;
  • Transition Compensatory Benefit: paid to current Bolsa Família beneficiaries who lose part of the amount received due to the changes brought about by the new program;
  • Sports School Allowance: for students between 12 and 17 years old who are members of beneficiary families and who stand out in the Brazilian School Games.

Tax problems can interfere with the amount that will be paid

After the announcement of the values ​​having an average of 50% more than the amount currently paid, technicians from the economic team said it should be between R$280 and R$290.

In addition, with fiscal problems, the program can be launched without increasing the number of families and the average payment.

This plan takes into account that the Bolsa Família budget for the next year remains at BRL 34.8 billion. Faced with this factor, the government is looking for alternatives to obtain resources to pay for the new expenses.
