What is the BPC and who can apply for the benefit?

BPC is financial support aimed at people with disabilities, regardless of their age, as long as this condition causes physical, mental, intellectual or sensory limitations. Furthermore, it is aimed at seniors aged 65 and over. Unlike retirement, it is not necessary to make contributions to the National Social Security Institute (INSS) to be eligible for the BPC. However, it is worth highlighting that this benefit does not include the payment of the 13th salary.

In addition to the elderly and people with disabilities, the BPC also benefits children and adolescents who have long-term disabilities, without the need for a minimum age to grant the benefit.

Criteria for requesting the BPC

To be eligible for the BPC, specific criteria must be met. This includes registering and updating data in the Single Registry (CadÚnico). In the case of people with disabilities, it is essential not to carry out professional activities and be in a situation of economic vulnerability.

Vulnerability assessment takes place when calculating monthly per capita family income. This income cannot exceed ¼ of the minimum wage, that is, R$353.00 per person.

To request the benefit online, the process can be carried out through the Meu INSS application. The steps include downloading the application, selecting the "Schedule/Request" option, choosing "New Application", choosing the desired service, updating contact details and filling in the requested information to send the request. Alternatively, the request can be made by calling 135 or in person at a Social Security Agency.

Adjustment of the minimum wage in 2024

For the year 2024, President Lula set the minimum wage at R$1,412, an increase of R$92. This adjustment affects several social benefits, including BPC, pensions, Special Civil and Federal Courts, as well as Individual Microentrepreneurs ( MEIs).

The increase will benefit all BPC holders, which include seniors over 65 years of age, people with disabilities and low income. With this change, the maximum value of per capita family income to access the benefit will increase from R$660 to R$706, seeking to expand access to the BPC and guarantee a minimum income for people in vulnerable situations, adjusting the total family income maximum from R$3,960 to R$4,236.

Criteria for applying for the BPC in 2024

To apply for the BPC in 2024, in addition to the previous criteria, it is necessary to be registered in the Single Registry (CadÚnico), which establishes a list of criteria that include situations of family vulnerability, provision of community services, economic need, age, history of disability, occupation and potential to work.

The family group includes the applicant, his or her partner, parents (or stepfather/stepmother), single siblings, children, single stepchildren and wards, all residing in the same place.

The BPC application process in 2024 involves steps such as registration with CadÚnico, medical examination for people with disabilities and verification of requirements such as minimum contribution time to the INSS and family income.

Furthermore, to request the BPC in 2024, beneficiaries can access the Meu INSS website or application, using the account login.
