What are the Bolsa Família rules?

In principle, Bolsa Família is aimed at families in poverty or extreme poverty.

Therefore, to qualify, the per capita family income must be up to R$89.00 for extreme poverty and between R$89.01 and R$178.00 for poverty, considering that they have children or adolescents aged 0 to 17 years.

In addition, it is necessary to be registered with CadÚnico, with data updated every two years or when there is a change in the family’s situation.

Discover additional payment benefits

In addition to the basic benefit, Bolsa Família offers complements:

Variable Benefit, aimed at families with children and adolescents aged 0 to 15; Variable Youth Benefit, for families with young people aged 16 and 17; Benefit for Overcoming Extreme Poverty, aimed at families whose per capita income, even after other benefits, remains below the extreme poverty limit.

Understanding the review

Furthermore, the recent scan of CadÚnico, which serves as a gateway to several government social programs, including Bolsa Família, revealed a notable increase in the number of registered single-person families – from 1.84 million in 2018 to 5.88 million in 2022.

This leap caught the attention of the authorities, prompting a detailed review to ensure that the records were in line with the reality of the beneficiary families.

How do I know if I am entitled to Bolsa Família?

Now, to be eligible for Bolsa Família, in addition to other social programs, families must meet specific criteria, such as per capita income and family composition.

The review identified that many of the excluded single-person families did not meet the necessary requirements, either due to inconsistencies in the data or because they no longer met the eligibility conditions.

How to register for the program?

To register for Bolsa Família, the family must go to the nearest Social Assistance Reference Center (CRAS) with documents for all family members.

Registering with CadÚnico is the first step, where information such as income, education, housing situation and others will be recorded.

What does the benefit look like in the future?

The Ministry of Social Development plans to continue reviewing registrations, with special attention to single-person families, in addition to updating outdated information.

In short, the objective is not only to purify the database, but also to ensure that support reaches those who really need it, strengthening the integrity and effectiveness of Bolsa Família and other social programs.

I understand the value of Bolsa Família

Bolsa Família represents a fundamental pillar in the fight against poverty and inequality in Brazil, offering financial support to families in vulnerable situations.

CadÚnico, in turn, is a crucial tool in the administration of these benefits, allowing for a fairer and more effective allocation of government resources.

How do exclusions impact beneficiaries?

Finally, the withdrawal of 1.7 million families from the program could have significant implications, especially for those who depended on the benefit for daily sustenance.

It is vital that steps are taken to ensure that these families are not left destitute, whether through reintegration into the program if they meet the requirements, or through other support initiatives.
