The next month will not be easy, as final decisions are expected in December on all the additional benefits that the government plans to provide to Greek citizens in order to somehow “calm down” them due to price increases.
The “window” for the distribution of social dividends to certain social groups in December depends on the amount that the Greek government will have at its disposal.
The double amount will be received by the beneficiaries of EEE (KEA), vulnerable households. Financial assistance of up to 900 euros will be distributed among more than 280,000 households.
As stated in the amendment by the Department of Labor, on December 15, the first amount of the “social dividend” will be paid in the form of a double benefit to recipients of the minimum guaranteed income (EEE).
Recall that the minimum guaranteed income paid by OPEC on the last business day of the month is a social security program for approximately 273,000 vulnerable households (482,335 vulnerable citizens).
1. Family with one person
Any adult who lives alone in a dwelling and does not fall under the age of 25 attending university colleges or schools, vocational schools or educational institutions at home or abroad.
2. A household consisting of several people (all people living under one roof), that is:
Guest or host family, provided this was declared on the last tax return checked.
Persons under the age of 25 attending university colleges or schools, vocational schools or educational institutions, regardless of their place of residence.
The beneficiaries of the program can be people living on the street or in dilapidated, inappropriate housing, provided that they are registered with the social services of municipalities or community centers, or use hostels operating in the municipalities. The recognition of homelessness cannot be confirmed only by the form of the income tax return.
The maximum amount of the social dividend is set at 900 euros per month, regardless of the composition of the family. Thus, the one who receives 200 euros today will receive 400 euros, and the one who receives 900 euros a month will receive double the amount, that is, 1800 euros.
