Greece: 1 in 6 disability claims fake


Health Ministry officials say nearly one-in-six disability allowances will be canceled at the end of the month after discovering thousands of payments were based on false claims -- including of drivers registered as being legally blind and bogus cases of leprosy.
Deputy Health Minister Markos Bolaris said Tuesday that some 36,000 allowances will be stopped, saving the government (EURO)110 million ($145 million) per year in the crisis-hit country. The action was taken on the results, announced Monday, of a compulsory survey for beneficiaries.
Bolaris said the government expected to save a further (EURO)120 million ($158 million) in annual payments following a more detailed befenit-fraud inquiry.
