Remember! From 2022 onwards, the last 25 years of contribution will be used to determine the amount of your pension. So from the age of 42, you will have to revise and update your Contribution Base if you are interested. They will affect your future public pension.
We also remind you that, depending on the publication of the Self-Employed Act, the number of times a year that you can change your contribution base has risen from two to four.
