The Single Registry for Social Programs of the federal government (CadÚnico) provides low-income families with access to government assistance programs. Thus, those enrolled must update the data every two years or whenever there is any change in their family nucleus.
The Cadastro Único app (available for Android and iOS) is one of the tools available so that registered families can check if the data is up to date. Thus, on the platform, beneficiaries can also find out if they are undergoing an Investigation or Cadastral Review and how they should proceed to regularize their data.
Therefore, whoever is summoned to investigate and review data must go to a Social Assistance Reference Center (CRAS) or to a service center in the Municipality’s Single Registry.
“The cadastral update is essential to ensure the quality of the data and ensure that the information recorded in the Single Registry is always in accordance with the reality of the families. Social programs such as Auxílio Brasil, the Benefício de Prestação Continuada (BPC), the Social Electricity Tariff (TSEE) and the ID Jovem require that the registration is up to date so that families can receive the benefits”explains a note from the Ministry of Citizenship.
In addition, failure to update the Cadastro Único may lead to the suspension of the benefit and subsequent cancellation. Thus, if the records are not regularized, as of July 2023, families can be excluded from the Single Registry.
