OPEKA, having received many questions regarding certain parameters of the Child Allowance and wanting to facilitate the citizens in the process of completing their application correctly, considered it useful to gather and highlight basic questions and answers.
Those looking for additional information can refer to the set of frequently asked questions and answers about the Child Allowance on the OPEKA website.
In the pre-filled application A21 my child appears without a name (female or male) and the platform does not allow me to add the name. What should I do;
In case the child’s name has already been registered in the AMKA, you must cancel the A21 application and submit final news. If the child still appears without a name and after the cancellation of the application you must go to the KEP and state the name of your child in the AMKA. Then cancel the A21 application again and submit final news.
Protected members are not recognized, because the surnames of the children are not identified with their AMKA. What should I do;
We draw your attention to the fact that when a child is added, only the surname of the child (not his name) and his AMKA are registered. If the identification problem persists, the beneficiaries must check the complete details of the dependent child in the electronic application of AMKA www.amka.gr and / or contact a KEP in order to correct any failures in the electronic register of AMKA. Most likely, the surname next to the AMKA has been written in a different way on the platform, in relation to how it has been registered in the AMKA register. Next, the A21 application must be canceled and a new application must be submitted definitively, in order to retrieve the corrected data from the AMKA register.
The application asks for a child’s TIN, while it does not allow me to enter it and refers me to the KEP. What should I do;
For children born in 2004 and later, VAT is not required. However, for children born in 2003 and before, VAT is mandatory. If this VAT number has not been registered in the AMKA register, then the citizens are referred to KEP to update the AMKA register with the corresponding VAT number, as the AMKA register cannot be updated through the A21 application. Subsequently, the saved application A21 must be canceled and final new ones submitted, in order to retrieve the corrected data from the AMKA register. In case you know that the child’s VAT number has already been registered in the AMKA, simply cancel the A21 application and submit final news.
While my child’s VAT number has been registered in the AMKA register as of today, the application cannot even be submitted and it mentions it as a mark. Do I have to do anything else?
The update of AMKA with the AFM is immediate. Cancel the application and submit final news, so that the VAT is re-obtained from your child’s AMKA.
