José Luis Escrivá, Minister of Social Security.
The arrival of 2023 brings with it a new system of freelance quote with up 15 sections divided based on worker performance. In the case of doctors, the rate will oscillate between 390 and 500 euros, which represents a significant increase compared to the previous system.
After the adjustments made by the Ministry of Social Security, the contribution table for the self-employed group establishes a growing model based on the real income of the worker The highest rank is reserved for those workers with yields higher than those 6,000 euros, which from January 1 will face a fee of 500 euros. That is, 206 more than today.
On the opposite side are the self-employed with income of up to 670 euroswhose rate will be limited to 230 euros.
Between these two extremes there are another 13 contribution brackets for the self-employed. As explained to Medical Writing Vincent Matascoordinator of the Study Center of the Medical Union of Granada, doctors can be placed from the thirteenth step, relative to self-employed with income between 3,620 and 4,050 euroswhich in 2023 will have a fee of 420 euros.
For those physicians with income ranging between 4,050 and 6,000 euros, the rate will reach 420 euros, while those who exceed the barrier of 6,000 euros will quote the maximum provided by Social Security: 500 euros.
The listing table will undergo changes in the coming years. As the Minister of Social Security, José Luis Escrivá, advanced in 2024 the limit will be in the 530 euros for yields greater than 6,000 euros. The quota falls to 445 euros for those of 4,050-6,000 and euros and up to 400 euros for those of 3,620-4,050 euros.
One year later, in 2025, the maximum fee will reach 590 euros for doctors with income greater than 6,000 euros, the 530 for between 4,050 and 6,000 euros and the 490 for between 3,620 and 4,050 euros.
“Equilibrium” of the self-employed system
The Ministry of Social Security appeals to the need to “balance” the model. “The relationship between the maximum contribution bases and the maximum pension must maintain the necessary balance between contributions made and benefits received to guarantee contributiveness but without undermining the solidarity dimension of the system”, he defends.
In this sense, it calls for the “adaptation” of the maximum contribution base of the system, so that it provides for “the gradual adjustment of the maximum contribution bases concurrently with the modification of the maximum pension so as not to affect the contributory nature of the system”. This reform should be debated and negotiation with the social agents”, clarifies the Executive.
