In the early stages of the COVID-19 crisis, the Brazilian government launched emergency help To mitigate the social and economic impacts of the virus. The benefit is managed by Caixa Econômica Federal.
To pay for the assistance, the government uses the Caixa Tem app. In it, the transfer is received into a digital savings account. About 40% of the Brazilian population received a benefit from the federal government.
We are in the final week of emergency relief payments. The program provided monthly payments to vulnerable beneficiaries such as those served by the Bolsa Família, informal workers and other individuals in vulnerable groups.
About 75 million people have been reached through emergency benefit. The main Brazilian social security registration system, CadÚnico, has registered only about 27 million people.
Everyone who was not in CadÚnico had to use the emergency assistance app to apply, and they underwent a government-run screening.
