Con­tri­bu­tions are charged to per­form the func­tions of the fund. The gen­er­al con­tri­bu­tion cor­re­sponds to the respec­tive max­i­mum con­tri­bu­tion in the gen­er­al statu­to­ry pen­sion scheme. In the case of mem­bers whose gross income from self-employed or salaried phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prac­tice is less than the con­tri­bu­tion ceil­ing, the proven amount of their gross self-employ­ment or employ­ment income will apply for the pur­pos­es of deter­min­ing their con­tri­bu­tion instead of the con­tri­bu­tion ceiling.
