Burton signals PRSI increase for self-employed
The Social Protection Minister has signalled she may increase PRSI for self-employed people.
It is one of a number of proposals being set out today in an expert report for the Government that sets out how self-employed people can have greater access to the welfare system.
The proposal is that the 4% PRSI contribution be increased to at least 5.5%.
Minister Burton said that would have benefits.
"Essentially they would get access to a long-term incapacity pension and they would also get an entitlement if they wished to apply to a news scheme that I brought in since becoming Minister called the partial capacity benefit."
