How many elderly people are there in Brazil?

Brazil, with an estimated population of 214 million inhabitants, has around 31.3 million elderly people, representing approximately 14.6% of the total population, according to IBGE data.

This significant number highlights the importance of policies and benefits aimed at this portion of the population, especially with regard to financial security and well-being.

Benefits for seniors in 2024: IPTU exemption

One of the most significant benefits is the IPTU exemption for the elderly. To qualify for this benefit, seniors must meet certain criteria established by the Federal Government, including being retired, a pensioner or receiving monthly income for life, not owning another property in municipalities, and using the property as their main residence.

Half price for cultural events

Another important right for seniors is the half-price discount on cultural events, such as theater, cinema and exhibitions. This benefit allows seniors aged 60 and over to have access to culture and leisure at a reduced cost, thus promoting their social inclusion and quality of life.

Preferential service

Preferential care is a constitutional right guaranteed by the Elderly Statute. Elderly people have priority in services such as banks, lottery shops, supermarkets and health services, ensuring that they receive the necessary attention quickly and efficiently.

Exclusive parking spaces

Commercial establishments offer exclusive parking spaces for seniors. To use these vacancies, it is mandatory to use the elderly card, as established by Federal Law No. 9,503.

Benefits for seniors in 2024: Free public transport

Elderly people over 65 years of age are entitled to free public transport, as provided for by the Elderly Statute. This benefit is essential to guarantee the mobility and independence of the elderly.

Income Tax Exemption

Retirees and INSS pensioners aged 65 and over have the possibility of exemption from Income Tax. For those who receive up to R$3,807.96 per month, this exemption represents significant financial relief, allowing them to use this money for other needs.

Free medicine

Elderly people also have access to medication for continuous use free of charge through the Farmácia Popular Program. This benefit is crucial to ensuring that seniors can maintain their health without the financial burden of medication costs.

Benefits for seniors in 2024: FGTS withdrawal

In addition to retirement, which in 2024 has a base salary of R$1,212, seniors can withdraw all the money from their FGTS after they retire. This benefit provides an additional source of income that can be crucial for many seniors.

13th INSS salary

Finally, the 13th salary is one of the most anticipated benefits for INSS retirees and pensioners. Traditionally paid in two installments, it is expected that in 2024 payment will be made between the months of May and June, following the practice of previous years.

Financial security at a prime age

These benefits together represent a significant financial safety net for Brazilian seniors.

With this support confirmed for 2024, seniors can look forward to a year with more financial peace of mind, access to essential services and opportunities for a more active and engaged life.

It is vital that the elderly population is aware of these benefits and knows how to access them, thus ensuring the full enjoyment of their rights. Find out more at www.meu.inss.gov.br.
