Payments are made by the employer at a rate of 30% for income up to RUB567,000 plus 10% for income above this.
Part of the Federal portion of the unified social tax is paid as pension insurance to the Pension Fund.
In addition, there are mandatory contributions for injury and professional illness which vary according to the nature of an employment between 0.2% of payroll and 8.5% of payroll.
