Receipts of funeral expenses of the funds

COLLECTION OF FUNERAL EXPENSES FROM INSURANCE FUNDS

Since 01/07/2020 the electronic submission of funeral expenses through the electronic platform gov.gr by the funeral homes has started, in order to relieve the beneficiaries from waiting the insurance funds. Then, the beneficiaries enter the same platform in order to claim electronically the amount to which they are entitled, which is deposited in the account of the claimant. Only in some exceptional cases (currently) such as security forces, the necessary documents are submitted in printed format to the local authorities.
