Caixa paid this Friday (27) the fifth tranche of the new tranche of emergency aid to informal workers born in August. At this first moment, the amount will be deposited into the beneficiaries’ digital savings accounts and can only be used through the Caixa Tem app. The money can be withdrawn in cash or transferred to a checking account within two to three weeks.
The new round of payments provides for payments of R $ 150 to R $ 375, depending on the profile of the beneficiary. Aid is only paid to those who have already received it in December 2020. This month, President Jair Bolsonaro announced the extension of emergency aid until October. A total of 45.6 million Brazilians are benefiting from the new payment cycle.
