Entities linked to the federal government speak out

Given the dissemination of this information, both the Communication Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic (Secom) and the National Social Security Institute (INSS) categorically denied the existence of a program called "user grant".

Secom stated that there is no proposal in this regard being discussed by the federal government, while the INSS clarified that there is no "specific aid for drug addicts."

Benefits for Temporary Disability

It is true that INSS policyholders can obtain benefits for temporary disability due to drug or alcohol abuse.

However, these benefits are granted based on the insured person’s monthly contributions and are not called "user grants".

To receive this benefit, it is necessary to present a medical certificate proving temporary incapacity and be up to date with social security contributions.

The reality of the grant for drug users

Furthermore, it is important to emphasize that, since former president Lula assumed his third term in January 2023, there are no official records in the Official Gazette of the Union or in reliable press sources that mention the creation of a monthly scholarship program for users drugs.

Therefore, the claim that such a program exists is completely false and has no basis in reality.

In a digital world full of information, it is the responsibility of each of us to verify the veracity of news before sharing it.

The spread of false information can cause significant damage to the reputation of individuals and institutions, as well as contributing to general misinformation.

Therefore, always look for reliable and verified sources when consuming and sharing news on the internet. After all, the dissemination of accurate and responsible information is fundamental for an informed and conscious society.

Therefore, before believing in supposed scholarships and fancy programs, it is crucial to check the facts and discern truth from fiction.
