Those who already have the unique Registration will automatically receive the benefit, eliminating the need for a new registration. The same goes for those entitled to Bolsa Famlia. In this case, the amount offered by the program will be temporarily suspended. The emergency aid is expected to start to be paid next Thursday (9) and the people who have already registered should be the first to receive it. The money will be deposited directly in the bank account and can be withdrawn in lotteries or branches of Caixa, Banco do Brasil, Banco da Amaznia and Banco do Nordeste.
