First of all, so that the Brazil Aid of BRL 600 in 2023 be effected, it is necessary that the benefit in the respective partial value and the total investment, is foreseen in the 2023 Budget.

Bearing in mind that some proposals have already been sent to the National Congress and, if the economic team wants to make any changes, the deadline for sending the text ends in August 31st.

According to the technical specifications, the Federal government need to send the text composed by more than three thousand pages as provided by law, even if the agenda proceeds for debate only in November.

Considering the current amount of 20.2 million of beneficiaries, the Brazil aid in BRL 400 would have a cost of BRL 110 billion along 2023a value that should already be predicted by the Budget Yearly.

On the other hand, the benefit of BRL 600 requires an even greater investment, in the margin of BRL 160 billion. For this reason, it would be necessary for the members of the Federal government approve a new Proposal for Amendment to the Constitution (PEC) still in 2022 to ensure greater value in 2023.

However, the Federal government must send a Message is Explanatory Memorandum to National Congress to justify the approach to the text, in an attempt to maintain the benefit of BRL 600 next year.

Meanwhile, the rapporteur-general of the 2023 BudgetO senator Marcelo Castrosaid that the maintenance of the Brazil Aid of BRL 600 in 2023 is conditional on the approval of a Proposal for Amendment to the Constitution (PEC).

The text aims at a new alteration of the expenditure ceiling, although there is also the possibility of elaborating a Provisional Measure (MP) which provides for the opening of an extraordinary credit, outside the ceiling.

O Brazil Aid of BRL 600 in 2023 is a promise of the presidential candidates, Jair Bolsonaro, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and Simone Tebet. On the occasion, the rapporteur, Marcelo Castroexplained that the appreciation of a new PEC may or may not include an increase in BRL 200 predicted between August and December 2022.

An alternative is, “do nothing this year and, as of January, the elected president, already sworn in, issues a provisional measure, on an extraordinary basis, giving this value. Evidently, Congress would never fail to approve such a large benefit, especially in the social crisis that Brazil is going through,” he said.

How will the BRL 600 Aid in 2023 be mentioned in the Budget?

At first, the Brazil aid in BRL 600 in 2023 must not happen according to the fanfare. The current government must send the official version of the Annual Budget Bill (PLOA) in 2023 to National Congress to the next Wednesday, (31).

sources of Ministry of Economy state that the text should provide for the value of BRL 400 fixed in May of this year. However, the project must govern a “commitment” to keep the Brazil aid in BRL 600 in 2023. The political signaling will be made in order to meet the interests of Bolsonaro.

At the end of Julythe special secretary of the Treasury and Budget, Esteves Colnagostated that this difference in BRL 200 at the Brazil aid would mean an increase in mandatory spending between BRL 50 billion and BRL 60 billion in 2023.

In addition, to fit this amount inside the ceiling, it would be necessary to cut practically in half the so-called discretionary expensesthose that are not mandatory and include investments and the cost of the public machine.

Who can receive Aid Brazil?

Currently, the Brazil aid in BRL 600 is paid to 20.2 million of vulnerable families with active and regular enrollment in the Single Registry (CadÚnico)database of the low-income population of the Brazil.
