  • For the first five years—4% of the contributable wage (2% contributed by the employer, the other 2% contributed by each worker/employee)
  • For the next five years—8% of the contributable wage (4% contributed by the employer, 4% contributed by each worker/employee)
  • For the next 10 years—an increase of 2.75% every 10 years
