Hi there

Does anyone know if you are able to claim money back if you get married here?
Myself and my partner have lived here permanently for 5 years and are getting married this year, someone told me we are entitled to claim money back from the government for deciding to marry here in Cyprus, but I am not sure where to check if this is correct?

If you find out, can you ask if it can be back-dated as Heather & I got married here in the 70's???????

Hi,
Found this on the Europa website:
Marriage benefit
The marriage benefit is paid to the two spouses, each receiving 50%, irrespective of their insurance category.

The conditions governing the payment of marriage benefit are:
Getting married.
At least 26 weeks must have elapsed from the date of insurance of the bride or groom prior to the date of the marriage and during that period the bride or groom has paid contributions on earnings which in total come to not less than 26 times the weekly amount of basic insurance payments.
The bride or groom has paid insurance or has insurance credits from the previous year’s contributions which in total come to not less than 20 times the weekly amount of basic insurance payments.
The application must be submitted within twelve months of the date of the marriage.

Hope this helps. Surprised)

I would think it is social insurance payments. Just a guess though!
