Do total, near 470 thousand families were framed in the band with per capita income above half the minimum wage. In this case, the benefits were canceled.

Near 1,5 million households had per capita income of R $ 170 and half the minimum wage. They had blocked the benefit and the release will be made only after the beneficiary makes the re-registration. Adding the families who had Bolsa Familia canceled with who had blocked benefit, the total comes to about 1,97 million.

The survey also identified "cadastral inconsistency of evidence" in the data on about 620 thousand families framed in the range with a per capita family income of up to R $ 170. For a while, these beneficiaries will not have the Bolsa Familia canceled or blocked, but will need to make the re-registration, according to the CGU.

To reach these results, CGU adopted a new data matching methodology involving various agencies and records of the federal government. The new methodology was proposed by a working group consisting of representatives of the Presidency of Staff, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Planning, da CGU, the National Social Security Institute (INSS) and Caixa Economica Federal, beyond the MDS.

They were then identified almost 346 thousand families with "strong evidence of having falsified the income statement information at registration". Resolutions at CGU, it is R $ 1,3 billion in overpayments for a period of two years. Through note, CGU adds that, It is proven irregularities, administrative procedures shall be initiated and implemented "legal sanctions, such as value return "and the impossibility of return to the Family Grant for a period of one year.

The 346 thousand families who have not informed existing income when registered on the program, near 297 would have a thousand underreporting income between half and one minimum wage; e 34,9 thousand would underreporting income between one and one and a half minimum wage.

In this scenario, CGU presented some recommendations to improve controls on the Single Register. Including the adoption of a prior process of verification of the declared and regulatory disputes generation criteria and invalidation of the registration of the families identified in the investigation process.

The program's target audience is, priority, by 13,5 million families living in extreme poverty, with monthly per capita income of up to R $ 85, and poverty, with monthly per capita income of R $ 85,01 and R $ 170.
