      • (i) their contributory salary and wages for the year, and

      • (ii) their contributory self-employed earnings for the year in the case of an individual described in section 10,

    • (b) the aggregate of

      • (i) their earnings on which a first additional contribution has been made for the year calculated as the aggregate of

        • (A) their salary and wages on which a first additional contribution has been made for the year, and

        • (B) the amount of any first additional contribution required to be made by the contributor for the year in respect of the contributor’s self-employed earnings divided by the first additional contribution rate for self-employed persons for the year, and
