Benefits of Bolsa Família in addition to the monthly payment

In addition to the monthly payment, Bolsa Família beneficiaries have access to a series of other benefits, such as the release of basic food baskets and free medicine.

Now, they can also receive significant discounts on their electricity bills. This is possible thanks to the Social Tariff, a system that offers discounts ranging from 65% to 100% on the energy bill.

Accumulation of benefits

One of the advantages of this program is that the holder of Bolsa Família can accumulate the benefit with other social programs, such as Tarifa Social. However, it is essential that the energy bill is registered in the name of the benefit holder for the discounts to be applied.

Who is entitled to discounts on their electricity bill?

To access discounts on the electricity bill, those enrolled in Bolsa Família must meet the Social Tariff criteria, which include:

Family registered in the Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government (Single Registry), with per capita monthly family income less than or equal to half the national minimum wage; Elderly people aged 65 or over or people with disabilities, who receive the Continuous Payment Benefit of Social Assistance (BPC);Family registered in the Single Registry with a monthly income of up to 3 minimum wages, who has an illness or disability whose treatment requires the continued use of devices that require electricity consumption;Maximum consumption of 220 kWh per month.

Automatic discounts

An important advantage is that the Bolsa Família holder does not need to register for the Social Tariff. By complying with the requirements mentioned above, the discounts will be automatically applied to the next electricity bills. This makes the process simpler and more accessible for beneficiary families.

Discounts on electricity bills for Quilombolas and Indigenous people

In addition to the categories mentioned above, the program also offers specific discounts for quilombola and indigenous communities. Discounts vary according to monthly electricity consumption and range from 100% for consumption of up to 50 kWh, up to 10% for consumption above 101 kWh to 220 kWh. For consumption above 220 kWh, there are no discounts applied.

Therefore, if you are a Bolsa Família beneficiary and meet the Social Tariff criteria, you can take advantage of these discounts on your electricity bill. With these measures, the government aims to provide financial relief to low-income families and guarantee access to an essential service such as electricity.

Take advantage of these opportunities and reduce your electricity expenses, providing greater peace of mind for your family budget. It’s another step towards a future with more affordable electricity bills.
