Regarding the pending adjuncts, the EFKA representative noted that until March 15 retroactive sums of 100 euros (50 if widowed or disabled) will be given for each month of delay to approximately 40 thousand insured persons. He said that on average this concerns auxiliaries pending since 2019, however there are some, such as the Metals Fund pending since 2012, so these beneficiaries will see even 15 thousand euros in their accounts.

Mr. Tsapalos clarified that they do not need to make any application the beneficiaries, however, it would be good to check that the correct iBAN has been declared to EFKA so that the payment can be made.

Finally, he added, that 40 thousand beneficiaries will have definitively received their supplementary benefits by the end of the month. He noted that in January 15,000 supplementary certificates were definitively issued and by the end of February another 25,000 will have been issued.
