It is important to remember that workers can clarify their doubts through the Caixa 111 call center, which operates from Monday to Sunday, from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. In addition, there is information on the website of the Federal Savings Bank. It is also possible to consult the assistance page on the Caixa website or the assistance consultation page on the Ministry of Citizenship website.
Emergency assistance and another extension of the benefit
The 7th installment of the emergency aid will, until then, be the last of the benefit. But in recent days, the possibility of another extension of the benefit has grown considerably. During this week, the Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, signaled that the benefit will be extended for a longer period. The statement was given at a ceremony at the Palácio do Planalto and the information is from Agência o Globo. See what Guedes said:
“Minister Tarcísio (from Freitas, from Infrastructure) is going to sell another 22 airports. Minister Rogério Marinho (of Regional Development) is going to complete the works. Minister João Roma will extend emergency aid. We are a team rowing through Brazil”, said Guedes.
And it’s not just minister Paulo Guedes. President Jair Bolsonaro is also in favor of extending emergency aid longer. In a speech in Bahia, the president said that Brazil is a rich country and could “meet the most needy for a longer time”.
“We have to work, yes, to serve those who have not yet returned to the job market. Brazil is big, Brazil is prosperous. We have a rich country and we can serve those most in need for a while longer and we ask God that this pandemic goes away soon and we can all get back to normal soon”, declared the president during his speech.
According to press reports, there are already members of the Government in favor of extending emergency aid for another six months. If that happens, the program would therefore end up entering the year 2022. And it could come even closer to the 2022 elections. The assessment is that this could be good for the government of President Jair Bolsonaro.
Criteria for receiving emergency aid
If it happens but one extension of 6 installments of emergency aid, CAIXA must require, in order to receive the benefit, some necessary criteria. According to the current format of the assistance program, it will be necessary to:
