Woman charged for illegally claiming widow’s pension for 24 years


The woman was remarried but still continued receiving her widow’s pension.

The Financial Police drew up charges against a 72-year-old woman accused of illegally claiming a widow’s pension from the Social Insurances Foundation (IKA) for 24 consecutive years.

According to the charges against her, the woman had entered into a second marriage without informing IKA, as she was obliged to do, and continued receiving her pension as a widow, setting the state social insurance fund back by an estimated 181,000 euros.

The case has been sent to a Rodopi First-Instance Court public prosecutor.
