Social Security Benefits & Social Welfare in Brazil
Brazilian social security benefits are only available to Brazilians and foreigners who are contributing to the social security system in the form of contributions paid by the employer and the employee or by the individual if they are a self-employed worker or business owner.
The Ministry of Social Welfare (Ministério da Previdência Social) is the overseeing government body for social security benefits in Brazil. Social Welfare (Previdência Social) is an insurance that guarantees payments for the contributor and their family in the event of illness, accident, pregnancy, imprisonment, death or old age.
To benefit from the scheme, it is necessary to be registered and contribute every month.
