The millions of beneficiaries of the Auxílio Brasil are awaiting payment of the thirteenth installment of the Auxílio Brasil, an allowance that would guarantee an extra portion of the benefit at the end of the year. Check how the payment of the additional program will be.

During his election campaign in 2018, President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) promised to pay the 13th installment of the country’s main income transfer program, at the time Bolsa Família. During his four years in office, the promise was not put into practice, but the old program was replaced by Auxílio Brasil, which offers a monthly amount of R$ 400.

In the second round campaign for re-election in 2022, Bolsonaro again mentioned the additional payment, stating that the payment is confirmed for 2023, not being carried out this year due to the impossibility of approving the novelty in the electoral period. After the result of the election, where he was defeated by Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT), the matter was no longer addressed, leaving it uncertain whether the payment will be made.

The payment of the 13th of the Aid Brazil

It is certain that the extra payment will not be made in 2022, as the year is coming to an end, making it impossible for Senator Alexandre Silveira’s (PSD) Bill of Law No. since March, be approved by the end of the year.

In 2023, president-elect Lula takes office, but does not seem to have the program’s thirteenth as a priority, despite having some proposals for Auxílio Brasil already at the beginning of his government, such as the recovery of the name Bolsa Família and the rule which requires that children belonging to the beneficiary family remain at school, as well as having their vaccination cards up to date.

New value of the Brazil Aid

The changes in the program for 2023 go beyond the rules and the name, the team that will take over the country’s management next year intends to increase the base value of the benefit from R$ 400 to R$ 600, making the value provisional, defined by PEC Kamikaze valid until December, official. Another proposal is the creation of a new type of benefit for the program, paying R$ 150 per child up to six years of age who is part of the beneficiary family.

To make the innovations viable, Lula seeks the approval of the transitional PEC, which proposes the withdrawal of expenses with the program from the annual budget, which allocates R$ 105 billion for it. The new amount and benefit means that an additional R$70 billion is needed for the program, which justifies the withdrawal from the budget to make the investment viable, in addition to releasing the budget amount to be used in other proposals, such as raising the minimum wage. above inflation.
