Greek Pension Funds Need an Extra EU300 Million, Imerisia Says
IKA needs 200 million euros ($255 million) and OAEE 100 million euros to pay July pensions on June 22, the newspaper said, citing estimates by the managements of the two funds.
Non-payment, or delays in payment, of contributions because of Greece’s recession caused IKA’s funding to fall by 14 percent and OAEE’s by about 20 percent in the first four months of the year, Imerisia said, citing fund officials.
