Disability certification

Special report 2013

Description

In a special report focusing on disability issues, the Greek Ombudsman highlights the serious weaknesses that emerged in the operating process of the KE.P.A., which is the special body in charge of assessing  the degree of disability a citizen may have and also of identifying what  benefits correspond to each degree to disability. More specifically, as of the commencement of KE.P.A. operation in September 2011 and by 11-02-2013, the Greek Ombudsman had examined a significant number of reports (exceeding 350) submitted by citizens. The Independent Authority stresses the need for immediate improvement, as well as for the adoption of legislative and organizational incentives, aiming to the efficient and effective operation of KE.P.A Committees.  Such incentives have to be implemented in cooperation with the Agencies which, on the basis of the committees’ medical statements, provide social benefits or facilitate individuals with disabilities, always in accordance with the regulatory framework in effect.
