June’s Gas Aid has already been completed; beneficiary families are awaiting the return of payments in August
The values of Gas Aid are not fixed, meaning that there can be slight variations with each payment, and the upcoming deposits in Caixa Tem promise higher amounts for certain family groups.
The government has not yet disclosed details about the value of the August installment or any potential extra payments.
However, families that receive gas aid in conjunction with Bolsa Família through Caixa Tem will once again receive larger installment deposits, depending on their family composition.
Recently, Bolsa Família reached its highest installment with the release of an additional R$ 50.
Therefore, those who receive the program’s extras and are also eligible for Gas Aid will receive a higher amount in August compared to this month’s deposit.
Who are eligible to receive Gas Aid?
It’s worth noting that this assistance is a program that aids individuals considered to have low income in purchasing gas cylinders every 60 days.
Through this assistance, eligible families receive an amount corresponding to 1 cylinder, following the average values of a standard 13 kg gas canister.
The voucher is granted to families registered in the CadÚnico who have a per-person family income equal to or less than half of a minimum wage.
It also encompasses families living in the same residence, who receive the BPC.
Thus, the aid is paid to the head of the family who has registered with the CadÚnico.
In the case of registered families receiving through the BPC, the transfer is made to the Legal Guardian.
