HOW TO RECEIVE THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND AMKA OF YOUR NEWBORN

You will receive your newborn’s Social Security Number (AMKA) by SMS on your mobile and it will also be written on the Birth Certificate. The Birth Certificate may be downloaded from www.gov.gr or obtained from a Citizens' Service Center (KEP) or from the Marousi Registry Office (open for the public Monday to Thursday, 08:30-14:00). The Marousi Registry Office is open by appointment for any other services (e.g. name-giving, recognition of child, etc.).

You will receive your newborn’s AMKA by SMS and it will also be written on the Birth Certificate.

You must immediately forward it to IASO before being discharged, so that you may be entitled to use EOPYY, your social insurance fund. Especially if the newborn is admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or a ward to undergo surgery, you must produce their AMKA prior to the newborn’s admission, so that they are entitled to use EOPYY.
