A job that regularly pays less than 520 euros per month or comes with a short-term contract is considered a mini-job. If you have a mini-job, you are insured against accidents at work and occupational diseases in the statutory accident insurance scheme. However, you are not covered by the statutory health insurance system, long-term care insurance system or the unemployment insurance system. You must pay into the pension insurance fund. You may apply for an exemption from having to pay into the pension insurance fund; you must give the application to your employer. You must inform your job centre if you are employed in a mini-job.
