An article in News247
has figures for 2017 but it is not absolutely clear if these are after the changes reported in ekathimerini or before? The article appears to be dated today and carries a time of 08:00 so I am guessing these are the new figures but sometimes articles show today's date whenever they were actually written.
Basically if someone has a total income, i.e. all pensions, salaries, wages, other benefits or grants, of up to €7,216 per annum then they get an EKAS payment of €115 per month. As total income increases the amount paid reduces:
- From €7,216 up to €7,518, €86.25.
- From €7,518 up to €7,720, €57.50.
- From €7,720 up to €7,972, €28.75.
There are some other condition such as being 65 or over and total family income limits. Certainly not the super rich.
