Reminder on Special Seasonal Allowance 

(ΕΙΔΙΚΌ ΕΠΟΧΙΚΌ ΕΠΊΔΟΜΑ): certain professional activities cannot be exercised throughout the year. For employees coming under the professional categories that are “seasonal” in nature, a special seasonal aid has been established and is paid by the Labour Employment Office (OAED) in the period during which they cannot exercise their professional activity.

Seasonal employees must be insured with the e-National Social Security Fund (e-EFKA) and must provide their services in Greece. Mainly employees in the construction sector, salaried employees in the tourism and food sectors, as well as certain categories of salaried employees in artistic professions are entitled to seasonal aid. The same aid is also provided to salaried shipyard employees, provided they are insured with e-EFKA and provide their services to undertakings which are registered in Greece and operate in one or more European Union member states.
