The Greek social security system is well developed and covers a large proportion of the population. The system also provides cover to citizens of other EU countries who work and live with their families in Greece.
A number of laws are in place to govern the social security system, which is a self-governed institution that covers all employees and their families working in the country. The self-employed, civil servants, farmer, military personnel and lawyers are also covered.
Private benefits are provided by employers as supplements to mandatory statutory benefits. Employers can select the type and level of cover given to employees, and plans vary from company to company.
