Informal workers registered in the Federal Government’s Individual Registry of Social Programs (CadÚnico) born in October can withdraw the fourth batch of emergency aid for 2021 from today (16). Funds were deposited into digital savings accounts at Caixa Econômica Federal on July 28.
Resources can also be transferred to a checking account at no cost to the user. So far, funds can only be transferred through the Caixa Tem app, which allows the payment of local bills (water, electricity, phone, gas), bills, purchases in virtual stores or purchases using a QR code (an advanced version of barcode) on the machines of partner institutions.
In case of doubts, the Caixa 111 telephone exchange is open from Monday to Sunday, 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM. In addition, the beneficiary can refer to the website auxilio.caixa.gov.br.
The withdrawal was originally scheduled for September 6, but was brought forward for three weeks by Caixa’s decision. According to the bank, the adaptation of technological systems and beneficiaries to the emergency aid payment system allowed the timetable to be brought forward.
Emergency aid was created in April last year by the federal government to help vulnerable people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was paid in five installments of R$600 or R$1200 for single mothers and then extended until December 31, 2020 in four installments of R$300 or R$600 each.
This year, the new round of payments, for seven months, expects installments ranging from R$150 to R$375, depending on the profile: families, in general, get R$250; Single-parent family, headed by a woman, receives R$375; People who live alone get R$150.
