Well, depending on the country of operation, you might be “forced” to pay a private pension and social security funds. Then again, those only provide “some” money for the pension, and I strongly recommend you look at a totally “private” pension fund, and pay that your whole life while you’re at it. That’s the thing about freelancers. Nobody pays anything for you as an individual, they only pay for your “services”, and the rest is up to you. That’s why you can charge slightly higher, but also have no vacation time, paid leave and so on and so forth.

Over here for example, most of such payments are made together with the taxes, and depend on profit amount. More profit > bigger payment > better pay later on.

Hope this helps.

Many countries have a National Insurance System. You’re never penalized because you are a freelancer as you are in fact self-employed and I’m 100% sure though there may be private pension programs, the state will have a similar program.

you cannot retire. you’re the chosen one*

* as in the person who will, for the rest of his life, listen to our rants, report back to devs and being yelled at because of that.
