Over 90% of unemployed in Greece, an estimated 1,172,817 people, are unable to collect OAED’s unemployment benefit, while only 1.5% of long-term unemployed collect the additional 200-euro benefit.
The Monday edition of Ta Nea published OAED’s official data, which show that less than 10% of unemployed, 102,026 people, can collect the benefit due to the legal restrictions imposed. Most applications for the benefit are rejected due to the minimum number of wages the unemployed must have collected.
For the “lucky few” who fulfill the strict legal requirement, the unemployment benefit is about 360 per month, which is increased by 10% for each protected family member of the beneficiary.
