new payments

A third batch of payment to taxi drivers who meet the established criteria is scheduled for September 24th. To be part of this third group of beneficiaries, the driver must be registered by the city hall or municipal entity by September 12th.

The Taxist Benefit is deposited in a digital social savings account automatically opened by CAIXA on behalf of the beneficiaries, using the Caixa Tem application. The beneficiary does not need to register or send account data to the bank. If the social account is not used for up to 90 days, the funds will be collected from the National Treasury.

The program

The Taxi Driver Benefit was established by Constitutional Amendment No. 123, of July 2022, as emergency assistance in dealing with the state of emergency resulting from the extraordinary and unpredictable rise in the price of oil, fuels and their derivatives and the social impacts arising from them.

Taxi drivers registered with city halls until May 31, 2022, who are holders of a concession, permit, license or authorization issued by the municipal or district government are entitled to the benefit. The proper regularity of the National Driver’s License (CNH) and the Individual Taxpayer’s Registry (CPF) is a mandatory requirement of the program.

The Taxi Driver Benefit is valid until December 2022. The amount of installments and the value of the benefit may be adjusted according to the number of registered beneficiary drivers and the global resource limit. The maximum amount is R$ 1,000 per installment.

Municipal managers are responsible for sending data from drivers in their municipality who meet the criteria for the Taxi Driver Benefit. The deadline for submitting this information is September 12.

Registration will be done through the Dataprev system, available at this link, which must be accessed by the local manager. The Ministry of Labor and Welfare prepared a booklet for municipal managers, teaching the step-by-step process of registering their Federation Unit, as well as the inclusion of data from taxi drivers in their municipality. The tutorial is available here.
