Employee and Employer
Both full-time and part-time employees (except for exempt persons) are covered by the MPF System.
Employers in all industries should enrol their regular employees (i.e. employees who are at least 18 but under 65 years of age and employed for 60 days or more) in an MPF scheme within the first 60 days of employment.
Employers in the construction industry or catering industry should enrol their casual employees in an MPF scheme within the first 10 days of employment, regardless of the length of the employment period. Casual employees are those who are at least 18 but under 65 years of age and who are employed in either of the two industries on a day-to-day basis or for a fixed period of less than 60 days.
Employers may select one or more MPF schemes available on the market for participation and offer them to their employees. Employers are encouraged to consult their employees on the selection of MPF schemes.
Self-employed persons who are at least 18 but under 65 years of age must enrol themselves in an MPF scheme within 60 days after they have become self-employed, unless they are exempt persons.
