The contribution rates are different for each of the above-mentioned branches: a social security ceiling is applied when the amount of the aforementioned salary exceeds a certain threshold. This ceiling is formulated as a minimum wage of 6.5 times. Above this threshold, the premium to be paid remains unchanged. In addition to the above-mentioned employer and worker contributions, the Turkish State also contributes to supporting the social security system. The State contributes up to a quarter of all premiums to long-term and general health insurance and 1% to unemployment insurance (which corresponds to the share of employees). . . .
