Social dividend payment to reach 32 pct of the country’s population

Greece’s 2018 state budget envisages payment of a social dividend to 1,459,834 households, based on the criteria set for its distribution, with an average dividend payment of 483 euros per household. The total number of eligible households’ members reaches 3,472,734 persons, or 32 pct of the country’s population.

The state budget envisages that the average social dividend is 610 euros for households included in the first category, 547 euros for the second category and 403 euros for the third category.

Payment of the social dividend was made feasible following a significant overperformance of a target for a primary surplus of 1.75 pct of GDP in 2017.
