Pension plans in Athens

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Greece > Athens

Anyone claiming a European pension can continue to receive payments when they move to Greece.

The amount of the pension depends on the period over which contributions were paid, the age of the individual, and the salary in the two years preceding retirement. An employee is entitled to a full pension when he has made contributions corresponding to 10,500 working days, completed 35 years of employment, and is at least 58 years of age.

A retirement pension is usually paid at the age of 65 and over for men and at the age of 60 for women.
