Some facts#

  • Accident insurance gives entitlement to benefits provided if the insured person suffers an accident at work or falls ill with an occupational disease.
  • The accident insurance contribution is part of social insurance contributions (polish: ZUS).
  • Accident insurance is obligatory and fully covered by the employer.
  • The amount of contributions for accident insurance depends on the type of work performed (different professions involve different risk levels) and number of employees. General rules for determining the amount of the accident contribution are as follows:
    • entrepreneurs employing less than 10 employees or when their activity does not require entry into the REGON database - the accident contribution is 50% of the maximum rate in a given year, currently 1.67% (as of 2021-01-10). This case applies in particular to self-employed, who do not employ any employees.
    • entrepreneurs employing at least 10 employees - the amount of accident contribution depends on type of activity (→ see PKD code). However, determining the PKD code and related rate of the accident contribution is the responsibility of the entrepreneur.
