There seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether I need proof of income and private health insurance. What have people with the beige card, who have successfully received the documents, had to supply? If health insurance is required, there is a health insurance offered by Stavros (mentioned often on this site) is that adequate? I don't have a Greek bank account but can prove sufficient funds in a UK account, that was adequate for my beige card, do I now need a Greek bank account too?
I am also probably listed as self-sufficient and have not reached retirement age.
I went yesterday with a 3 year old beige card. Like you, I have not reached retirement age. There was no mention of health insurance. I simply handed over a folder containing Passport, Residency Card, 4 Photos (dimensions 40x60mm), Tax Return and Rental Agreement. I'm not totally sure they needed the actual Tax Return or whether any piece of documentation including the Tax Number would have been accepted.
For the Rental Agreement, you need the official document from Taxisnet. If you cant find it yourself then ask your accountant to email it to you.

They didn't want to see 12 years of utility bills for some reason
Why would you want to keep bills for 12 years??. I have been here for 12 years and never kept any, in fact for the past few years all bill, except for Mains water, are emailed to me. Much more environment friendlier. When I have had to present a bill I use the latest one. Or print one from the Utility Website as I had to do so for the Biometric card. I know at one time we had to keep receipts, I stopped after the first 6 months as I noticed the ink fads very quickly. Was never asked by my Accountant for them.
