To register for the program, you must pre-register and interview at a Cadastro Único service point.

Pre-registration and interview

Pre-registration can be done online or at a Cadastro Único service point, and during this process, the person responsible for the family unit must provide basic information about their family, such as number of people, monthly income and address.

After this, it is necessary to go to a registration point to carry out the interview, where the person responsible must present documents that prove the information provided during pre-registration. 

Monitoring and proof

Once registered, the family must keep its data updated, and it is necessary to carry out monitoring every two years or whenever there are changes in family composition or monthly income. 

If you need to prove your registration, the family can obtain proof of registration on the Cadastro Único website or application, which contains information such as the social identification number (NIS) and the date of the last registration update. 


In summary, the Single Registry is an important tool for the government to better understand the country's low-income families and to offer social benefits. 

As you have seen, to start registration, you need to pre-register and interview at a service point. After this, the family must keep their data updated and can obtain proof of registration and registration verification on the program's website or application.

We hope these tips help you stay up to date with your Cadúnico registration and the benefits it has!
