The eMPF Platform front-end portal consultation sessions – for Friends of MPF who are also MPF intermediaries (24 Jun and 27 Jun)

As an integral part of the MPF industry, the views of MPF intermediaries on the eMPF Platform under construction are crucial to its development. With a view to perfecting the design of the eMPF Platform user interface, MPFA and the eMPF Platform Company conducted two virtual sessions of the eMPF Platform front-end portal consultation with “Friends of MPF” who are also MPF intermediaries on 24 and 27 June, sharing the latest developments of the eMPF Platform project, demonstrating key functions of the Self-employed Persons and Third-Party Portal user interfaces, and soliciting their views and comments on the design.

 

 

About 160 MPF intermediaries had participated in the two consultation sessions. Their valuable comments would become useful feedback for the contractor to improve the design of the eMPF Platform user interface, making it easier and more convenient to use.
