📈Contributions on the rise for INPS separate management: 2024 updates


The INPS Separate Management reaffirms itself as a vital foundation for the Italian pension system, addressing self-employed and para-subordinate workers.

2024 marks a significant evolution in terms of contribution rates, minimum and maximum income thresholds.

It refers to an update within Italy's national pension system managed by INPS (Italian National Social Security Institute).

This update specifically targets self-employed individuals and those in similar work situations, who are not automatically covered under traditional employee pension schemes (e.g. freelancers, contractors, and others who work independently).

These changes are crucial to ensure the sustainability of the pension system in response to the continuously evolving economic and labor dynamics.

The rates have been updated to reflect the needs of a wide range of professionals, including those in the amateur sports sector, highlighting INPS's commitment to inclusive and fair coverage.

Clarity regarding contribution rates and applicable income values is critical for self-employed workers and collaborators, allowing for more accurate financial and pension planning.

These updates reflect an adaptability to new work realities and a response to calls for greater equity in the calculation of contributions.


In detail, the base contribution rate of 33% for collaborators and assimilated figures and 25% for freelancers represents a balance between the need to adequately finance the pension system and not to overly burden self-employed workers.

These percentages include contributions for old age, disability, survivors (IVS), and other benefits such as maternity and DIS-COLL.

It is crucial to underline how these rates are applied to a minimum and maximum income, thus establishing a boundary within which contributions are due.

This structure allows for adjusting the contribution load to the economic capacity of the workers, simultaneously ensuring the coverage of necessary social protections.

This approach reflects a particular attention to inclusivity and financial sustainability, fundamental aspects for maintaining a fair and effective pension system.

The differentiation of rates based on the type of work and income ensures a greater personalization of contributions, making the system more adherent to the specificities of the contemporary labor market.


The definition of minimum and maximum income plays a critical role in determining the contribution exposure of those enrolled in the Separate Management. These parameters not only establish the limits within which contribution calculation becomes applicable but also reflect an attention to equity and proportionality of the pension system.

The minimum income, set at 18,415.00 euros, and the maximum, at 119,650.00 euros, are figures calculated to balance the contribution needs with the economic reality of self-employed and para-subordinate workers.

This balance ensures that contributions are proportional to income, preventing excessive burdens on workers with lower incomes while ensuring that maximum contributions reflect the contribution capacity of higher incomes.
