Besides personal income tax, individuals must pay compulsory social contributions. Both employer and employee must pay contributions, with the contributions withheld by the employer. Self-employed persons must pay social security contributions on their own. There are four types of contributions paid to two social security schemes and to the state budget, as follows:
- For pension and disability insurance, paid to the Pension Fund;
- For medical care and sickness leave, paid to the Health Fund;
- For unemployment insurance, paid to the state budget; and
- For maternity leave, paid to the state budget.
