Long-term care insurance contribution

The contribution rate for statutory long-term care insurance is 3.05% of the insured person's income subject to contributions up to the income threshold. Childless persons pay a contribution surcharge of 0.25 percentage points, which is levied from the month after the insured person's 23rd birthday. The income threshold is 41,400 euros.

For special groups of persons, such as agricultural entrepreneurs, there are deviating legal regulations.
