Abstract

This chapter will discuss and offer an analysis of the social insurance system within the independent state of Cyprus by exploring the scheme’s further development, especially the first major amendment to the scheme and the appearance and role of the elderly people’s movement. The chapter will also explore the impact of the 1974 war on the social insurance scheme and the elderly population in particular.
