What is the BPC?

BPC/LOAS is financial support aimed at low-income people who are in a situation of economic vulnerability.

This benefit is mainly aimed at seniors over 65 years of age and people with disabilities of any age, as long as they meet specific income criteria and are duly registered in the Single Registry (CadÚnico).

To be eligible for the BPC, you must:

Be a native Brazilian, naturalized citizen or holder of Portuguese nationality; Have a per capita family income of less than ¼ of the minimum wage; Be registered and have up-to-date information on CadÚnico.

Furthermore, it is not necessary for people to have contributed to the INSS at some point, as the benefit is social, even paid by the local authority.

BPC application process

To request the BPC, you must initially register the family with CadÚnico through the Social Assistance Reference Centers (CRAS).

Subsequently, the request must be made directly to the INSS, which can be made online via the Meu INSS portal or by calling 135.

Is the 13th salary included?

Unlike other benefits offered by INSS, BPC does not include payment of the 13th salary. This is due to the nature of the benefit, which is not considered a retirement, but rather temporary financial assistance granted while the situation of social vulnerability persists.
