“We are going to find a way to deliver support to older adults, people with disabilities and scholarships in advance, because elections are coming and there will be an electoral ban. Let’s review the law. Last time the payments were advanced and if necessary now, we are going to do it so that the support reaches the people”, he sentenced.

“Y have to do it soon, because the payment for this two-month period is already being delivered, which is January-February, I already think that March-April, May-June, are four months, two bimesters would have to be brought forward”, he added.

From the National Palace, the head of the federal Executive promised that on January 31 the cabinet of the Secretary of Welfare will present information on the advance delivery of scholarships and pensions due to the electoral ban and on the procedures for replacing cards. .
