The auxiliary insurance contributions are collected by e-EFKA, transferred to TEKA and credited to the insured persons’ individual accounts.
As of 1.6.2022, the contribution rate for salaried persons is 3% for the employer and 3% for the employee, in line with the e-EFKA auxiliary insurance contribution rates (article 97 of law 4387/2016, as replaced with article 45 of law 4670/2020 and amended with par. 1 and 2 of article 35 of law 4756/2020).
These rates apply to the majority of the salaried persons of the private sector. However, there are categories of employees with different contribution rates, e.g. employees in arduous and unhealthy professions.
In this case, the contributions are divided equally between the employer and the employee, with a maximum amount of monthly earnings of 6,500 euro and the contributions are withheld and paid by the employer via the TEKA APD.
The auxiliary insurance contributions of non salaried insured persons for TEKA are the same as the contributions for e-EFKA’s auxiliary insurance (article 97 of law 4387/2016, as replaced by article 45 of law 4670/2020 and amended with par. 1 and 2 of article 35 of law 4756/2020).
The amount of the monthly contribution is determined by the insurance category each insured person has selected as shown in the table below:
|Insurance category||Monthly auxiliary insurance contribution from 1.6.2022|
It should be noted that lawyers on a retainer and salaried engineers shall pay auxiliary pension contributions on the basis of their insurance categories and not on the basis of their earnings. The abovementioned monthly contribution amounts shall be split equally between the client (in the case of lawyers on a retainer) or employer and the insured person.
