Fies debt renegotiation begins today
Measure aimed at reducing default in the loan portfolio and guaranteeing sustainability to the Fund will take effect as of this Monday (03/07) - Photo: Marcello Casal/ Agência Brasil
Students who have contracts signed up to December 31, 2017 and who are in arrears for more than 90 days, considering the date of publication of the Provisional Measure (12/30/2021), can now make the request at the respective financial agent .
Banco do Brasil and Caixa Econômica Federal, financial agents of Fies, will make available, through various means, the renegotiation of debts. In order to have the name removed from the restrictive credit registers, the beneficiaries must pay the entry amount at the time of renegotiation, corresponding to the first installment. The minimum amount of the installment is R$ 200. The operation can be carried out in full in the service channels made available by the financial agents.
The Provisional Measure
The MP published at the end of last year aims to reduce default in the loan portfolio and ensure the sustainability of the Fund. Of the 2.6 million active contracts, formalized until 2017, more than 2 million are in the amortization phase, with a debt balance of R$ 87.2 billion. Of these, more than one million students are in default, that is, more than 90 days late in payment. This represents a 51.7% default rate and amounts to R$9 billion in unpaid installments.
For debts that are more than 360 days overdue, the MP provides discounts of 92% for those enrolled in CadÚnico and Auxílio Emergencial, which represents about 548,000 delinquent students, and 86.5% for the others, 524,700 students. In addition, the remaining balance can be paid in up to ten installments.
For the renegotiation of debts with a delay of 90 to 360 days, the Measure provides for installments in up to 150 installments. This will reach around 220 thousand students and a balance of R$ 523 million in unpaid financing or a total debt balance of R$ 10.9 billion.
Renegotiation at CAIXA
As of March 7, around 800,000 students, whose average debt is R$35,000, will be able to renegotiate their contracts at CAIXA in a 100% digital manner.

To do so, simply access the address sifesweb.caixa.gov.br, which is already available for simulations.
