Suspension of Bolsa Família: understand the impact on 3.7 million Brazilians

The measure taken by MDS aims to correct distortions identified in CadÚnico, also meeting the requirements of judicial investigations. The registration review, which began in March, revealed more than 17 million outdated or inconsistent registrations.

Incorrect information about family composition, deceased beneficiaries, or those with income above that allowed by the program are some of the inconsistencies found. The block of benefits affected 8.4 million families, of which 3.7 million had their benefits cancelled.

The impact of lockdown on everyday life

Imagine the surprise and impact for these families when they found out about the suspension of Bolsa Família. For many, this benefit is a crucial source of income, essential for purchasing food and basic needs. The blockade generates a wave of uncertainty and concerns, directly affecting the quality of life and food security of millions of Brazilians.

Notifications and regularity check

Beneficiaries identified with irregularities are notified via the Bolsa Família app or Caixa Econômica Federal. Furthermore, it is possible to check the CPF status on the Federal Revenue website. These notifications are essential so that beneficiaries can understand the situation and seek to regularize their condition.

How to regularize the situation

To avoid future blockages, it is crucial that Bolsa Família beneficiaries update their registration data. This update can be done online, through the Cadastro Único browser or application. In cases of specific inconsistencies, regularization must be carried out in person at a CRAS unit (Social Assistance Reference Center).
