Hong Kong MPF Contribution
The MPF Scheme is an important retirement savings scheme for Hong Kong's workforce. It provides a reliable source of retirement income and helps to ensure that employees are able to save for their future. Employers and employees should ensure that they understand the features of the MPF Scheme and are making the appropriate contributions to their retirement savings.
Employer and Employee Contributions
Under the MPF Scheme, both employers and employees are required to make contributions. The minimum contribution rate is 5% of the employee's relevant income, which includes their basic salary, bonuses, and allowances, up to a maximum of HKD 1,500 per month for both the employer and employee.
However, employers may choose to contribute more than the minimum amount. Self-employed individuals are required to make contributions at a rate of 5% of their income, up to the same maximum of HKD 1,500 per month.
Employment Start Date: 23/3/2023

The MPF Scheme offers a range of investment options to suit different risk profiles and investment objectives. These options include equity funds, bond funds, mixed asset funds, and guaranteed funds. Employees can choose to invest their contributions in one or more of these funds, or they can choose to invest in a default investment strategy, which is designed to provide a balance between risk and return.
