In an interview with the radio station “Sto Kokkino”, Social Security Deputy Minister Tasos Petropoulos stated that the surplus of the Single Social Security Entity (EFKA) reached nearly 650 million euros in July, and it will reach 1.5 billion euros on an annual basis. Therefore, it will be possible to consider not only the non-implementation of the pension cuts planned, but also the realization of tax and development interventions.

The Deputy Minister also said that increases in revenue from the levies of salaried employees are recorded, as well as better yields from debt settlements.
