Auxílio Brasil is the largest social income transfer program in the country, benefiting more than 21 million Brazilians monthly. Beneficiaries receive the benefit through the Caixa Tem application and can withdraw the amount using the Bolsa Família card, a program that preceded Auxílio Brasil, but the Federal Government is gradually sending cards for the current program.
The shipment of Auxílio Brasil cards started in July 2022, when 3.2 million units were made. The shipment is being carried out gradually to part of the beneficiaries, through the address in the Single Registry (CadÚnico). It is not necessary to order the card. In addition to the numbering, the card has the beneficiary’s name and Social Identification Number (NIS).
Who can receive the Auxílio Brasil card?
The Auxílio Brasil card is not exclusive to any specific group, that is, all beneficiaries can receive one unit of it. To be a beneficiary of the program, you must have an updated CadÚnico and be part of a family in extreme poverty or poverty:
- Extreme poverty: monthly per capita family income of up to R$105;
- Poverty: monthly family income per capita between R$ 105.01 and R$ 210, with pregnant women or people under 21 years old among its members;
How to track Auxílio Brasil card
So far, there is no criterion for selecting the first beneficiaries who received and will receive the card. The Auxílio Brasil app, available on the Play Store and App Store, does not yet allow tracking of the benefit card, which can be done by telephone:
- 4004-0104 – Capitals and metropolitan regions;
- 0800-1040104 – Other regions.
