Premiums for social security comprise pension insurance premiums, sickness insurance premiums and contribution to the state employment policy.

The amount of insurance premiums shall be determined as a percentage rate of the “assessment base” and equals:

  • on the employer’s part 25 % of the assessment base (of which 2.3 % for sickness insurance, 21.5 % for pension insurance, 1.2 % for the state employment policy);
  • for an employee 6.5 % of the assessment base;
  • for a self-employed person
    • 29.2 % of the assessment base (of which 28 % for pension insurance, 1.2 % for the state employment policy) for a self-employed person participating in pension insurance,
    • 2.3 % of the assessment base for a self-employed person who participates in sickness insurance;
  • for a person who voluntarily participates in pension insurance 28 % of the assessment base;
  • 2.3 % of the assessment base for a foreign employee.

The payer of premiums is obliged to calculate the relevant amount of premiums and pay the amount to the account of the district social security administration.
