SSA accepts a mitroon arrenon certification at face value as preferred evidence of age if secured from the
Nomarchy by the FBU in Athens. (See GN 00307.519C.2. for individuals born in annexed areas.)
SSA does not require a certification from the lixiarchika
vivlia for a man born before 1934 unless there is a material discrepancy in the month and
day of birth.
Since Nomarchies do not issue certificates to the public, any mitroon arrenon purportedly secured by the claimant from a Nomarchy must be verified by FBU.
