How does worksharing affect the amount of Health Contribution?

Print page

You pay the Health Contribution if your gross weekly earnings are €480 or over at PRSI Subclass A1. The Health Contribution is charged at 2% on all reckonable earnings above this threshold. An additional 0.5% health levy has been introduced on earnings exceeding €1,925 per week (equivalent to €3,850 per fortnight and to €8,342 per month). If your gross earnings are under €480 in any given week, you do not have to pay the Health Contribution for that week. If your weekly earnings fluctuate above and below €480, but your total earnings during 2007 are €24,960 or less, you may claim a refund of the 2% Health Contribution from:
