PENSIONS CLOSE TO POVERTY LINE THE REPORT BY THE BANK OF GREECE POINTS TOWARDS THE OPTION OF PRIVATE INSURANCE At the end of the article there are comments concerning the Hellenic Post
After the publication of Law 3863/2010, the POST Federation, in an article on insurance and pension issues, highlighted the dramatic changes that were on the way, the gradual elimination of social security in our country (the relevant articles are available under the corresponding titles) as well as its privatization. As a result, only those able to pay more for private insurance will be able to enjoy retirement benefits; as for the rest, the welfare state has seized to exist. The relevant report by the Bank of Greece provides various conclusions and predictions, however, it does not analyze the causes of the situation. Thus, there is no mention of the bleeding of the insurance funds, which were robbed of their reserves and contributions, of the structured bonds fraud, of the fact that the assets of the insurance funds have never been profitably invested or that the latter were excluded from the bank recapitalization, etc. The official experts reveal nothing on the inflated contributions of the employees that were wasted or the transformation of the social security system from compensatory to redistributive. The latter's destination is not any more to guarantee to the insured financial stability in their old age, but to make them indigent, as, under the new law brought to us by Mr. Loverdos, the assets of all the insurance funds were given away and the only guarantee in relation to our pensions is the minimum of 360,00 euro, while the calculation of the total pension sum is based on 2010 rates. Finally, there is no mention whatsoever of the poverty salaries or the unemployment rates or the increasing numbers of young people unable to find full-time jobs. This is the new reborn Greece they have in mind...

JUSTIFICATION AND SECURING OF PENSION RIGHTS
As we had updated you from the previous changes in insurance, for the justification and securing of pension rights, if it already exists or can be done by recognition of fictitious time, the insured is not required to do anything directly because it is all done by the insurance institution with the application for retirement and similar requests at the latest.
There is no deadline for any recognition now (if you wish, of course you can apply-there is a relevant application form).Therefore do not worry and as soon as the circulars will be issued, you will be given detailed information, though in a relevant article we have already informed you about the changes.
