Since the beginning of 2013, the new regulation for minijobs has been in force. Those who have accepted a job of up to 450 Euro since January are exempt from health insurance, long-term care insurance and unemployment insurance. What is new, however, is that pension insurance premiums are now incurred. What to pay attention to? An overview.

No health insurance just about the minijob

Overview

This question comes again and again from readers: "I have only a mini-job, nothing else, how do I assure myself?" Only about his Minijobb you can not insure yourself. You still need an insurable main job as an employee or self-employed person. Or you are insured in the family insurance!

Only one insurance job is possible

Overview

In addition to an insurance job requiring 450-Euro, a single 450 Eurojob is also possible, which in this case can still be billed by the employer on a flat-rate basis.

However, if several mini-jobs are taken alongside one main occupation, all are combined with the main occupation. Employers and employees then pay all the charges that are also due to a "normal" employment relationship.If the total remuneration paid does not exceed 850 Euro, then the Midijob scheme applies - see below.

Social insurance for gross earnings up to 450 Euro per month

Overview

The employer

Overview

For employers, nothing changes: they pay in commercial 15 percent flat rates, in minijobs in private households even only 5 percent. Employers have the same labor obligations as their other employees compared to their marginal employees.

This applies, for example, continued pay, paid leave and continued pay on holiday. The lump-sum fees for mini-jobs are only paid to a central office - the mini-job center in Essen.

New regulations for workers

Overview

What is new is that employees are now subject to compulsory pension insurance: the contribution rate valid as of 2013 is 18,9 percent. Mini-jobbers in commercial enterprises must therefore increase the employer's share by 3,9 percent - with a monthly income of 450 Euro are the 17,55 Euro.

Mini-jobbers in private households must increase their employers' share by 13,9 percent - 450's earnings are 62,55 per month. However, this regulation does not apply to existing employment contracts concluded up to 31.12.2012. Under certain conditions, an exemption from the pension insurance obligation is possible.

Between 400 and 450 Euro

Overview

Anyone who has earned between 401 and 450 Euro is still subject to social insurance. Exemption from the pension obligation is not possible.

If existing 400 Euro Job Contracts increase the fee to 450 Euro, the new regulations of the year 2013 apply.

Several minijobs

Overview

It is possible to practice several minijobs simultaneously, but not with the same employer. The merits of all the occupations are aggregated. They may not be over 450 Euro.

As soon as the limit is exceeded, social insurance contributions are due for the entire merit and are, for example, expelled from student health insurance. If someone has two minijobs, it may be possible to make a slight increase in the wage to 451 Euro or more to the midijob (see below).

Independence and minijob

Overview

If an independent activity is carried out as a minjob, ie with a merit up to 450 Euro, this is insurant. If you earn more than 450 Euro yourself, you must voluntarily insure your health.

If you have one or more minijobs in addition to your self-employment, you must observe the same rules as for minijobs in addition to a main occupation (see above).

Several minijobs

Overview

If an independent and non-independent activity with each 450 Euro is exercised side by side, the same rules apply as for several minijobs, ie an activity should become the main activity.

If self-employed and non-self-employed activity are carried out side by side and you earn more than 450 Euro with both, the main activity is earned more.

Midi Jobs

Overview

Jobs with a merit from 450,01 to 850,00 Euro (for one or more jobs together) are midijobs for which lower social insurance contributions are calculated. The social contributions to be paid by the employee begin with 4% (as of 451 EUR / month) and rise linearly up to the full share of 21% at 850 EUR Arbeitsvergelt.

This rule does not apply if the secondary job is exercised with a work allowance from 451 to 850 EUR in addition to a main pension obligation of more than 850 EUR. The full social insurance contributions of employers and employees are then payable for both employments. The basis for determining the employee's contribution is not the salary, but an amount calculated according to a certain formula.

Insurance Overview

Overview

Who accepts a mini-job for 450 Euro, is employed without social insurance. That sounds like "pay no dues". Far from it: Those who can not insure other worth, even for the insurance coverage:

  1. Health insurance: The Minijob is not covered by health insurance. In many cases, however, the employee will otherwise be covered by a health insurance, for example through family insurance, a main job, an unemployed (contributions paid by the employment agency) or voluntary.
  2. Long-term care insurance: Long-term care insurance always follows health insurance. Who is free of charge with a health insurance family is, there is also free of charge care insurance. Anyone who is voluntarily insured with health insurance must also be cared for with the same health insurance.
  3. Accident insurance:
  4. The 450 Euro limit does not apply here. The employer must also pay contributions to the employer's liability insurance for these employees, and after an accident, you are entitled to all benefits of the statutory accident insurance.
  5. Pension insurance: claims which you have acquired from your previous activities remain unaffected. But the flat-rate contribution of your employer makes very little additional demands. You can increase these claims through your own contributions to a voluntary pension insurance.
  6. Unemployment insurance: No insurance cover. If you lose your 450 Euro job, you will not be entitled to any unemployment benefit, except possibly as a residual claim from previous employment. However, you can, of course, apply for unemployment benefit II (Hartz IV) at any time.

    People, do not listen to what employers say do your own thing instead of dumping you on 450 Euro somewhere.

  2. Beata

    Hello.

    from 6. June I work at the hotel (mini job - 450 Euro job). I can not speak or write a fale so I'm sorry, but I hope someone will understand my questions.

    I have not had any social security since 2 years, but the boss said it's not a problem, he'll send a letter to the post office. (he "ordered" a social insurance - he said "order" .... so i do not know what that means, wile i glabe on 451 the employer does not have to pay my social insurance or "order" is just that he send me a few possibilities and then I choose as is the best offer for me, and I pay for it selbs?

    and when I must pay about how much euros do I have to pay per month for a social insurance?

    + information: I had no job in Germany until this month.
    I had no social insurance in Germany
    and I'm single, and I have no other "job" but one.

    Many thanks for your help.

      Hi Beata,
      First: Find someone who knows your mother tongue and can help you in such matters.
      Basically it is as in the text with Minijobs: Your boss pays a lump sum, you pay nothing.

      But the text also states:

      Only through his Minijobb you can not get sick. You still need an insurable primary job as an employee or self-employed. Or you are insured in family insurance! [Quote-end]

      This means that if you are not covered by social insurance in Germany, it is illegal if you live in Germany - you have to be insured somehow, preferably your job.

      Unfortunately, we can not advise you for legal reasons, here the Minijobzentrale or the Deutsche Rentenversicherung can help.

    Good day

    These contributions were very informative. On the Internet, however, you can find additional information about private health insurance. It is clear that the PKV's performance packages will be reduced. But the benefits of the GKV also. For this reason, private health insurance is still the best choice for good medical care. Thus, each employee can receive a grant from the employer for his private health insurance. This subsidy remains tax-exempt. The amount is based on the contributions for a statutory health insurance. The employer's allowance is not dependent on the selected benefits of the tariff.

    • Simone Janson

      Hello Gudrun, thanks for the hint. Which health insurance is best, still depends on the individual situation such as the marital status. So you should not generalize that.
