Solidarity Support Fund - uncertain future

The Polish government might give up on the planned liquidation of its salary cap for social security contributions, currently set at 30 times the average monthly wage in the economy, following the introduction of the solidarity levy aimed at co-funding the Solidarity Support Fund for disabled persons, the daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna writes citing Polish tax regulations.
As social security contributions reduce the tax base, a lot of high earners expected to pay the levy would be exempt from it or pay less, thus putting a question mark over the government's expectations to collect PLN 1.15 billion for the Fund in 2019.
A major overhaul of the social security system with increased contributions from top earners has been greenlighted by PM Mateusz Morawiecki, according to business and technology minister Jadwiga Emilewicz.
