Determine the salary for a particular employee and relate it to the table of contribution rates for the compulsory pension insurance program. This table can be found in the law “On Compulsory Pension Insurance in Russia”. The rate of pension contributions will depend on the age of the individual, on the type of organization in which he works, on his annual salary and on the type of pension contributions (insurance or funded part).

9,000 * 12 = 108,000 rubles.

108,000 * 6% = 6,480 rubles per year or 570 rubles per month.

720 + 570 = 1,290 rubles.
