Truck driver assistance: two installments will be paid this Tuesday; clear your doubts | Economy

The so-called Emergency Benefit for Autonomous Cargo Carriers (BEm Caminhoneiro) will be paid to autonomous cargo carriers to offset the effects of the increase in fuel prices. About 900,000 autonomous cargo carriers should receive the benefit, estimates the government.

The benefit is part of the pre-election social package created by the so-called PEC Kamikaze, enacted by Congress on July 14th. Among other points, the constitutional amendment increased the value of Auxílio Brasil from R$400 to R$600, expanded the gas voucher and created a “voucher” for truck drivers and an allowance for taxi drivers. The total cost of the pre-election package amounts to R$ 41.2 billion. In the case of truck drivers, the total amount released is R$ 5.4 billion.

  • are entitled to the benefit autonomous cargo carriers duly registered in the National Registry of Road Cargo Carriers (RNTR-C) until May 31, 2022.
  • Professionals must have the Valid National Driver’s License (CNH) and CPF.
  • The monthly payment of the benefit in the amount of R$ 1 thousand will be made regardless of the number of vehicles they own.
  • The professionals will not need to present proof of purchase of diesel oil to be entitled to the value.
  • Anyone with a registration status “pending” or “suspended” may regularize the registration at the National Land Transport Agency and qualify to be entitled to the aid.

The first two installments, referring to the months of July and August, will be paid on August 9. The payment of the other four installments of the aid will be made until December, which is when the benefit ends.

The aid will be paid through digital social savings, whose deposit is operated by Caixa Econômica Federal, through the Caixa Tem app.

Digital social savings have been in effect in the country since the payment of Emergency Aid – learn how to access Caixa Tem.

Amounts not moved within 90 days from the deposit date will be returned to the Federal Government.
