The OAED long-term unemployment benefit is an important aid. It concerns ages from 20 to 66 Greek nationals and nationals of European Union Member States who are insured against unemployment.
Beneficiaries are also those who have exhausted a 12-month subsidy even if they received it in installments (i.e.. with suspensions and sequels), and submit the application within a depreciation period of two months, from the end of the 12-month regular subsidy.
Regularly subsidized due to continuation under the article 20 of the n.d.. 2961/54, who at the end of the balance of the 12-month subsidy have not completed a period of residence continuously for 12 months in the unemployment registers of OAED, may apply for the long-term unemployment benefit, within a depreciation period of two months from the completion of the uninterrupted 12-month stay.

The unemployed must have completed on the date of submission of the relevant application, unemployment time continuously for twelve months, remain registered in the OAED unemployment registers.
