President Jair Bolsonaro announced the extension of emergency aid for four months in the amount of R $ 300. The extension of the aid has already been made official through a provisional measure and will now have to be approved by deputies and senators in the National Congress.

This year, the Executive deposited five installments of R $ 600 for aid beneficiaries, aiming to help low-income Brazilians, informal workers, MEIs, self-employed and unemployed.
President Jair Bolsonaro had already informed about the reduction of the benefit amount and argues that, if the amount may seem little to Brazilians affected by the pandemic, “it is a lot for those who pay, in this case, Brazil”.
According to calculations made by the economic team, the monthly cost of the benefit was R $ 50 billion per month during the first phase of the program.
