Social Security in Poland

Social security contributions are paid partly by the employer and partly by the employee. Contributions are levied at various rates calculated on the employee's gross remuneration.

Contributions for retirement insurance are paid half by the employer and half by the employee. For disability insurance, the employer covers 6.5% and the employee covers 1.5%. The employee pays the entire sickness insurance contribution, and the employer pays the entire industrial injuries insurance contribution. The maximum annual base for calculating retirement and disability contributions is 30 times the projected national average monthly remuneration for that year (PLN 111,390 for 2013).

As a result of Poland's accession to the EU, it is covered by the EU social security regime, which is principally provided in European Community (EC) Regulations 1408/71 and883/2004.

Health care system. Contributions to the health care system are levied at a rate of 9% on the employee's assessment base, which is gross remuneration after deduction of the employee's contributions to retirement, disability and sickness insurance. In general, health care contributions are partially (7.75% of the health care base) deductible for personal income tax purposes.
