Greece’s Finance Ministry announced that more than 307,000 households or roughly one million citizens, will receive the social dividend benefit of 700 euros this year after already receiving more than 266,000 applications.

According to the announcement, the deadline for submissions has closed but the electronic platform www.koinonikomerisma.gr where applications were submitted, will remain open until January 15 so that members of the public can express objections or appeal against rejections. If their appeal is successful, the money will be received at the start of 2020.

Eligible households include those on a low income that have four or more children, those with one parent that is long-term unemployed, single-parent families, households where both parents are unemployed or where one member of the household is disabled.
