What happens if you earn more than 538 Euros?
As long as you don’t exceed the limit of 6.456 Euros per year, you can also earn more than 538 Euros per month. From 6.456 Euros (gross/year), your job is subject to social insurance contributions: Your employer must pay contributions to health, pension, nursing care and unemployment insurance from your salary. The net amount of money you then earn is less than your gross salary. However, it means that you are fully insured, including health insurance.
Please note: if you are employed in a mini job but earn more than 6.456 Euros (gross/year), this is not right. Your employer may be liable to prosecution. This can also have negative consequences for you. You should seek advice from your Fair Integration advice centre!
