What this article covers:
What are the reasons for canceling the CPF?
The canceled CPF is the one that appears in the CPF registration status as “duplicate”, that is, the same person has two different registrations in their name.
This, as already mentioned, can be related to theft or theft of documents, in addition to registration errors of the person, which usually happens in the change of name from maiden to married, in cases of divorce, or an administrative/judicial measure, when a Justice judge requests the cancellation of the document.
Therefore, in case of theft of your documents, it is necessary to register the occurrence with the police, since if your documents are used improperly, the bearer can prove that he did not have the documentation.
What are the consequences of a CPF cancellation?
The canceled CPF, as well as any other irregularity in this document, can cause several inconveniences, including opening bank accounts, receiving benefits, hiring a job, purchasing goods such as cars and real estate, in addition to not being able to apply for a passport, vote and participate in public tenders.
Can I still use my CPF if it is cancelled?
With the CPF status cancelled, it can no longer be used. In this case, it is necessary to request assistance from the Federal Revenue to regularize the situation and request a new CPF number. However, unlike some other types of status, where it is possible to regularize the situation, what is canceled cannot be active again.
