13.33% of the Exempt Wages if the employer pays the employee additional payments to insure his monthly income in case of work disability, in a plan approved by the Supervisor of the Capital Market, Insurance and Savings in the Finance Ministry, at the lower of, a rate required to insure 75% of the Exempt Wages or 2.5% of the Exempt Wages (“Disability Payment”).
