MPFA encourages all MPF intermediaries to login to eService for checking their registration details and informing MPFA of any relevant changes to information through the following links:

Prescribed forms can be downloaded from the List of Useful Tools to inform MPFA of the relevant changes to information.

A PI or an SI who fails to report the relevant changes commits an offence and may be liable to a fine of up to $50,000.

Continuing training

To ensure that intermediaries meet the continuing training requirements, MPFA requires SIs to undertake and complete the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities within a set time period.  For details of the CPD requirements, please refer to the Guidelines on Continuing Training for Subsidiary Intermediaries


Consequences of non-compliance


If an SI fails to attend CPD or other continuing training activities specified by MPFA, his/her registration status may be suspended or revoked.

Continuing Professional Development (“CPD”)

CPD helps SIs maintain and enhance their expertise in the MPF System and related areas.

 

  • All SIs are required to undertake a minimum of 10 hours of CPD activities in each calendar year (at least two hours must be devoted to core subject area);
  • All core CPD activities must be approved by MPFA.
  • See List of Currently Approved MPF Core CPD Activities.
