Entrepreneurs are entitled to a daily sickness allowance when unable to work due to illness provided that they have worked as an employee or entrepreneur for at least three months prior to the disability. If the work requirement is not fulfilled, the entrepreneur is entitled to sickness allowance only after 55 consecutive days of disability. Entrepreneurs are entitled to unemployment allowance when becoming unemployed after ending their entrepreneurial activities. Receiving earnings-related unemployment allowance requires membership in an unemployment fund. The YEL insurance contribution can be paid by the entrepreneur or by the company. The contribution is deductible for both. YEL provides security also in the event of disability or the death of a family provider. YEL pension is the amount of old-age pension according to the earned income you entered.
The premium interest rate is a fixed part of the TyEL contribution used to bring the contribution from the theoretical due date of 1 July to the interest date in the calculation. The interest has influence on the payments, in the beginning of the year by reducing and in the end of the year by increasing payments due.
The premium interest rate is based on the 12-month TyEL benchmark rate quoted by Garantia, but it is always at least 2 per cent.
Since the level of the insurance contribution interest rate is lower than the level of the technical rate of interest, the interest rate benefit from focusing the provisional contributions on the first half of the year.
The premium interest rate used in this calculator is 2 per cent.
