No one should have to worry about retirement, but when pension payments are delayed, it can lead to financial hardship and a lack of trust. e-EFKA is making it easier and quicker for people across Greece to access their pensions.
Millions of people in Greece were finding it challenging to apply for their pensions. They had to keep copies of their entire employment history, getting information from employers was time-consuming, and the application process involved lots of bureaucracy, paperwork and manual processes across many different platforms.
Greece’s largest social security organisation, Electronic National Social Security Fund (e-EFKA), is responsible for making sure people receive their pension awards and payments quickly and securely. They also need to combat pension contribution evasion and avoidance.
