Abstract: This article aims to analyse Provisional Measure 871 and the INSS Disability Benefit Review Program of the Brazilian current government, unveiling the directions of austerity sought, if in the dimension of efficient and effective application of public resources to reach those benefits eligible and exclude those who make inadequate use, or in the neoliberal orthodox direction of the lean State, and which open up many opportunities for capital to intervene by offering services and leaving excluded margins that do not access the market by restricting resources and are not covered by restrictive public policies and selective.
