ID Jovem is the result of a Federal Government program that provides a digital document for low-income Brazilian youth. Integrated into the Youth Statute, the initiative grants exclusive benefits to those who meet the requirements and can be renewed every six months. To qualify for the benefit, young people must be between 15 and 29 years old, have a family income of up to two minimum wages and have their NIS (Social Identification Number) active in Cadnico (Unique Government Register). It is not necessary to be a student.

The unique Cadastro is a Caixa Econmica Federal system that also records and controls the data of citizens enrolled in several other social programs, such as Bolsa Familia, Minha Casa, Minha Vida, Elderly Portfolio, among others. In order for the information not to be out of date, the beneficiary must contact the CRAS (Social Assistance Reference Center) of his municipality, at most every two years.

Those with ID Jovem can enjoy benefits such as half-price tickets to cultural, sporting and leisure events in general, such as musical shows, theater plays, competitions, among others. In addition, the number of the active NIS also allows exemption from registration fees in public tenders.
However, one of the advantages most used by program subscribers is free travel by bus, train or boat. An important point is that the document is only valid for conventional class transport and that is for interstate travel, that is, from one state to another. In addition, the boarding fee is normally charged and the ticket is nominal and non-transferable.
The ID Jovem initiative ensures that every trip made through ANTT (National Land Transport Agency) companies will have four spaces reserved for young people holding the document. Two of them offer 100% discount on the fare, while the other two offer 50%. The program also requires companies to provide at least one conventional line per week free of charge.
With the Cadnico updated, the young person will be able to use his NIS number to register on the ID Youth website or application. When generating the digital document, it is possible to print the card or use the digital version by the mobile application itself, when necessary. Thus, it is sufficient to present the data together with an official photo identification document at the ticket sales points and ticket offices to enjoy the benefits.
To purchase tickets, the young person is not authorized to make reservations for more than one travel schedule on the same day, nor for other times considered impossible. Thus, there is no risk that he will make the benefit unavailable to other registrants just to keep his place. The request for passage must also be made at least three hours before departure.
ID Jovem has a validity period of six months, but through the application it is possible to renew the document in a simple and quick way.
