Understand details about the account opened at Caixa Econômica and the truth about billing
In partnership with the Federal Government, the Savings Bank serves more than 150 million people in Brazil. There are several account options, faced with broad competition from new and old financial institutions.
One of them is Digital Social Savings, which is free. It is possible to make transfers, PIX, withdrawals, payments, among other methods. This type of account can be opened free of charge and has been one of the most sought after.
Since 2020, the platform has also been used to pay social aid, such as Bolsa Família. The program, for those who don’t know, helps more than 21 million homes and has become the country’s main income distribution channel.
However, you need to be careful. Recently, Caixa Econômica released a statement explaining the closure of Digital Social Savings. It does not have an expiration date, but, in some situations, it can be closed if the user breaks the rules.
If there are irregularities, the bank may terminate access to the platform, making future transactions and payments impossible. “If the CPF linked to the account becomes irregular with the Federal Revenue Service, the account will be closed by Caixa itself,” he said in a note.
