Self employed artists and publicists are included in the social security system.
They only need to pay half of their social security contributions which means:
pension fund, health insurance and nursing insurance. The other half is paid by the KSK.
Professional activity must have a self employed character. Social security
contributions are calculated on the basis of the income and the net earning has to be
over the minimum income level of 3,900,- per annum.
Insurance will start earliest with the first notification to the KSK.
