We are talking about those who perform works or services under civil law contracts, work under contracts of an author’s order or are a performer under contracts for the alienation of copyrights. Inclusion in the system of compulsory social insurance will allow such employees to receive paid sick leave, payments in connection with pregnancy and childbirth, and childcare up to 1.5 years.

In 2022, this figure was 4,833.72 rubles. The contributions paid from employment contracts are also taken into account.
