Government submits social insurance bill with 2-point rise in employer contributions


The government on 16 December approved and sent to the Sejm legislation that increases by 2 percentage points incapacity benefit contributions paid by employers, effective from 1 February 2012. The employer will now contribute 6.5% of the gross salary, while the contribution paid by the worker remains unchanged at 1.5%.

The move is part of the government’s package of fiscal consolidation measures, announced by Prime Minister Donald Tusk last month. It is expected to bring revenues of PLN 7bn (approx. €1.5bn) annually, significantly reducing the funding gap in the public social insurance system.
