Since 1861, Caixa has always sought to be more than just a bank, but an institution truly present in the lives of millions of Brazilians. It is, for example, the responsible agent for the Fundo de Garantia por Tempo de Servico (FGTS), the Social Integration Program (PIS) and the Unemployment Insurance, institutes so present in the formal worker’s life. It also appears to help the population through government social programs such as Bolsa Familia – which benefits more than 13 million Brazilian, FIES and teh Minha Casa Minha Vida Program.

Caixa is also reinforcing its commitment to being a bank for all Brazilians, promoting inclusion and always working to serve all citizens with equal attention and efficiency.
