Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για συνταξιοδοτική προσδοκίαAs it is well known, the existing general supplementary pension fund (in greek ETEA) has already been transformed to a new united institution, now renamed ETEAEΠ, by Law 4387/2016, after the integration of the remaining insurance sectors. Although, according to the declaration, this conversion took place with a view to increasing the supplementary insurance reserve fund and ensuring its sustainability, it seems that, until today, it has under-produced in its function, given that the high unemployment rates and the earlier significant deficits of the integrated subsidiary funds make the super-fund a “hostage”, concerning the smooth completion of its mission, even contradicting  the most optimistic supporters of the reform of the supplementary system.

Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για επικουρικές συνταξιοδοτικές ασφαλίσεις μέσω ευρωπαϊκών διακρατικώνThe substantial reduction in the national pension benefits of the first pillar of social security (main pension), which took place due to the prevalence of particularly low replacement rates and the change in the method of calculating pensionable earnings (see the recent Law 4387/2016) and, on the other hand, the exhaustive haircut in the supplementary benefits under the second pillar (supplementary pension) through their re-calculation, inevitably lead to the need for a radical review of the way, in which social security should operate, in order to be efficient and sustainable.
