Huge teething prob­lems for pen­sion fund

Kathimerini English - - Focus - ROULA SALOUROU

The Sin­gle So­cial Se­cu­rity En­tity (EFKA) is suf­fer­ing from or­ga­ni­za­tional and ad­min­is­tra­tive chaos, ac­cord­ing to the fed­er­a­tions of so­cial se­cu­rity em­ploy­ees POPOKP and POSE-IKA.

The unions have called a work stop­page from noon to the end of the shift on March 2, warn­ing that the or­ga­ni­za­tional prob­lems will in­creas­ingly start to im­pact on ser­vices for Greek ci­ti­zens.

Two months af­ter the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the merged so­cial se­cu­rity fund, em­ployee rep­re­sen­ta­tives claim that con­di­tions are spi­ral­ing out of con­trol and must be dealt with im­me­di­ately, say­ing that other­wise they could lead to to­tal chaos.

As Kathimerini has re­vealed, EFKA has not yet im­ple­mented a sin­gle sys­tem for the de­ter­mi­na­tion of so­cial se­cu­rity ca­pac­ity, which means that mil­lions of pen­sion­ers and work­ers are at risk of be­ing left with­out so­cial se­cu­rity at the end of Fe­bru­ary.

Fund em­ploy­ees stress that the EFKA reg­is­ter has yet to start op­er­at­ing sys­tem­at­i­cally, fol­low­ing the ma­jor er­rors that were made dur­ing the trans­fer of data from its com­po­nent funds.
