2022 social security contribution rates
The contributions due to the CNSS are based on all the remuneration received by the beneficiaries of the social security scheme; including allowances, bonuses, gratuities and any other benefit in cash or in kind, as well as any sum received directly or through a third party as a tip.
These remunerations constitute what is called the base contribution base on which the contributions are calculated.
The rates to be applied when calculating your contributions are determined by law. Each of the major categories of social benefits is characterized by its own contribution rate.
