Social Security Contributions to Increase come January

The National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) has been officially informed by the Social Security Board that effective January 3, 2022 contributions will be increased by one percent. The increase was to take effect in January 2021 but was delayed by the Briceno Administration on the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and challenges being faced by the country. Additionally, the wage band will be increased to $520.00. This means that when a contributor goes on leave, albeit sick or maternity, the most he/she would receive weekly is $520; an increase from the current $480. Payments made in this regard by SSB is calculated based on salary/income.
