Therefore, the financial assistance will be paid only to those who were already registered to receive it in 2020 and remained eligible until the last installments.

  • Auxílio Financeiro Emergencial in 2020 has not been denied.

For those who may receive the financial assistance in 2021, it will not be necessary to make a new registration or update the existing registration, the analysis is made from the public that received the Auxílio Emergencial or Auxílio Emergencial Extensão.
