A new gift from the government to pensioners, beneficiaries and the disabled

The government is determined to continue supporting citizens in order to counter the wave of inflation that hit the heads of citizens. The prices of all basic foodstuffs have risen.

For this reason, according to the publication Dnewssince April 11, the government is thinking about repeating the issuance of one-time assistance to the same beneficiaries who received the Easter gift.

Events new support cycle for households and businesses is under consideration by the government of Megaro Maximos and, as highlighted in the information, the priority is to support the vulnerable segments of the population and mainly to reduce (subsidize) electricity bills.

The proposed package of measures aims to significantly offset the jump in the cost of living, especially for vulnerable, low-paid and unemployed citizens. It is possible that in May the way will open for resuming the implementation of measures already implemented in April, such as the payment of emergency financial assistance to support the most economically weak households.

According to the information cited by the publication, assistance (if it is accepted by the government) citizens will be issued at the end of June-beginning of July, provided that the upward trend in prices will intensify.

Recall that the allowance in the amount of 200 euros was given to beneficiaries during the Holy Week (low-income pensioners, recipients of EEE (KEA) benefits, the disabled, etc.).

This assistance will be the second in a row, since the above citizens have already received the one announced by the government. Besides subsidies to pay electricity and gas bills also for the coming months should be taken for granted.

It is assumed that in total this will require an additional 2 to 4 billion euros from the Greek budget (for the next 12 months).
