Therefore, if the employer's income does not reach the highest insured salary level, he/she/it shall submit relevant proof for the declaration. In addition, according to Paragraph 2 of Article 26 of the Rules for Enforcement of Labor Occupational Accident Insurance and Protection Act, the employer's labor occupational accident insurance insured salary shall not be lower than the one for labor insurance and the National Health Insurance.

In addition, Article 26 of the Rules for Enforcement of Labor Occupational Accident Insurance and Protection Act stipulates the total monthly insured salary of all types of insured in the following table:
