On September 1, President Jair Bolsonaro announced that the extension of emergency aid due to the pandemic caused by the coronavirus. However, changes are expected in the payment of the benefit for the next 4 months.

And, if you are also in doubt as to what these changes are and how much it will impact your family income, follow along with us throughout this reading! We will explore everything that will change – and remain – in this extension of emergency aid. Check out!

What happens with the extension of emergency aid

Between the government aid style=”font-weight: 400;”> for such a delicate and unpredictable moment, built as a result of the pandemic, the financial emergency measure is one of the ones that stood out the most.

To date, UK citizens who have passed the program have received five monthly installments of £ 600 each. Now, with the extension of the emergency aid, the beneficiaries will receive £ 300 over the next four months. This generates, in total, the equivalent to £ 4.2 thousand.

Bearing in mind that mothers who are heads of household are entitled to an increase in that amount: twice as much.

In this way, the benefit will extend until the month of December within the calendar stipulated by the government program itself. However, it is necessary to keep an eye on these dates to understand how much this aid will impact the beneficiaries.

Recalling that the benefit is important, but the UK residents has to take care of himself in other aspects in the face of this pandemic and the quarantine period that does not need to be a psychological storm in his routine. For this, take the time to check out our article that better explains how is it possible to maintain well-being during that period!

The new emergency aid payment schedule

As we highlighted above, the emergency aid has different calendars and that must be followed according to the alignment of each person with the requirements and criteria of the program.

Next, we will point out the situation of each payment batch, taking into account how it is also starting this month due to the extension of the emergency aid!

Lot 1 (there are two groups of beneficiaries)

Lot 1 is aimed at people who have been approved and have already received the first installment of emergency aid in April.

As a result, the 3rd installment has already been paid between June 27 and July 4, but will be released between July 25 and September 17 for withdrawals and transfers.

The fourth installment was paid between 22 July and 26 August, and was also released between 25 July and 17 September for withdrawals and transfers.

Therefore, the following installments are missing:

  • 5th installment, whose payment is scheduled between August 28 and September 30, in social savings, and whose release is scheduled between September 19 and October 27 for withdrawals and transfers;
  • 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th installments do not yet have their respective dates defined with the extension of the emergency aid.

There are also those approved who received the aid in April, but whose payments were suspended in July and only then had the benefit released again. For them, the current situation includes the release for withdrawals and transfers between August 8 and September 17. Thus, there remain:

  • 5th installment, whose payment is scheduled between August 28 and September 30, in social savings, and whose release is scheduled between September 19 and October 27 for withdrawals and transfers;
  • 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th installments do not yet have their respective dates defined with the extension of the emergency aid.

In other words: the conditions above are the same as the previous ones.

Lot 2

The lot is of interest to those approved whose first installment was paid in May.

Thus, the current situation points out that the 2nd and 3rd installments were paid between 27 June and 4 July and 22 July and 26 August, respectively. The withdrawals of both are expected between July 25 and September 17. So now there are:

  • the 4th installment, which will be released between September 19 and October 27 for withdrawals and transfers;
  • the 5th installment, which is scheduled to be released between October 29 and November 19 for withdrawals and transfers;
  • the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th installments do not yet have their respective dates defined with the extension of the emergency aid.

Lot 3

Lot 3 concerns those who were approved for the benefit and received the first installment during the month of June.

For this beneficiary profile, the 2nd installment was released between 25 July and 17 September for withdrawals and transfers. And with that, the third installment remains, which will be released between September 19 and October 27 for withdrawals and transfers, in addition to the other installments, which are:

  • 4th installment, paid between October 9 and November 13, but released for withdrawals and transfers between October 29 and November 19;
  • 5th installment, paid between 16 and 30 November, but released for withdrawals and transfers 26 November and 15 December;
  • 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th installments do not yet have their respective dates defined with the extension of the emergency aid.

Lot 4

Lot 4 corresponds to beneficiaries who were approved by the program and received the first installment between June 27 and July 4.

Currently, the people included in this lot have received, or will receive, the value of the 1st installment between July 25 and September 17 (for withdrawals and transfers). The second installment, which was released between 22 July and 26 August, in digital social savings, was also or will be released for withdrawals and transfers between 25 July and 17 September.

Thus, with or without the extension of emergency aid, the following installments are missing:

  • 3rd installment, which is available for withdrawals and transfers between September 19 and October 27;
  • 4th installment, which is available for withdrawals and transfers between 29 October and 19 November;
  • 5th installment, which is available for withdrawals and transfers between November 26 and December 15;
  • 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th installments, which do not yet have scheduled dates for payment by the government.

  • 1st installment, released between 25 July and 17 September for withdrawals and transfers;
  • 2nd installment, which must be released for withdrawals and transfers between September 19 and October 27;
  • 3rd installment, released for withdrawals and transfers between 29 October and 19 November;
  • 4th and 5th installments, released between 26 November and 15 December for withdrawals and transfers;
  • 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th installments, the payment of which has not yet been foreseen with the extension of the emergency aid.
