Brazil is facing an extremely relevant situation that directly affects the lives of its citizens: the replacement of the RG, or General Registry, with the new identification document, known as the National Identity Card (CIN).

The controversy revolves around the deadline for this transition and its implications, including the loss of access to Bolsa Família and formal jobs.

End of term and beginning of the new era

The deadline set for Brazilian states to begin issuing the CIN ended on January 11th. The ID is a fundamental document for identifying citizens and accessing public services. However, the registry is now being replaced by the CIN, which promises a series of improvements.

Initially, the deadline for issuing the CIN was set for November 6, 2023, and later extended to December 6 of the same year. However, the states requested an extension, which culminated in the deadline being set for January 11th.

The CIN aims to unify the General Registry in all units of the federation, through the Individual Taxpayer Registry (CPF). The idea is to provide an improvement in administrative records and strengthening the checks of the Public Security Forces, as well as mitigating fraud problems in the country.

New RG: impact on Bolsa Família and CLT employment

The relationship between the replacement of the RG by the CIN and Bolsa Família and formal jobs is evident. The ID is a fundamental requirement for citizens to have access to public services, including the Bolsa Família program.

Furthermore, the document is essential for obtaining a work card and for formalizing jobs governed by the Consolidation of Labor Laws (CLT). Without the RG or the new CIN, Brazilians may face difficulties in obtaining CLT jobs. Therefore, this is a relevant concern, especially at a time when financial stability is crucial.

Therefore, replacing the ID with the CIN not only modernizes the identification system, but also has direct implications for citizens’ lives, affecting access to social benefits and the formal job market.

CIN: security and modernization

The CIN, although mandatory from February 28, 2032, is already being issued in several Brazilian states. The transition aims to improve security against fraud in all spheres that depend on the government, including Bolsa Família and the registration of work cards.

The new identity card will have advanced security features, such as a QR Code to verify authenticity and an international standard code known as MRZ, the same used in passports.

Where to issue the new ID

To obtain the CIN, citizens must contact the Public Security Secretariat of the state where they wish to be served. There, you will need to present your birth or marriage certificate in physical or digital format.

Replacing the RG with the CIN is an important step towards modernizing and strengthening identification and security systems in Brazil. However, it is crucial that citizens are aware of the deadlines and implications of this change.

Guaranteeing access to social benefits, such as Bolsa Família, and formal jobs depends on obtaining the new identification document within the established deadlines. So, stay tuned and don't leave it until the last minute!
