The Greek Labor Ministry confirmed that the nation's social security fund debt totals 10.5 billion euros.
Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis has stated that the large debt is due to a problematic structure faced with fragmentation and imbalances, as reported by ANA-MPA.
Social Security Arrears Collection Center data revealed that 83% of the debt grew before 2009, and 66% of outstanding debts equal up to 20,000 euros per person.
Greece's biggest social security fund IKA, the farmer's fund OGA and self-employed fund OAEE are the firms with the highest debt.
