The Mandatory Provident Fund

MPF Contributions

How much does an employee have to contribute to the fund?

An employee’s rate of contribution is 5% of his/her relevant income (the maximum relevant income being $30,000 per month). Unless an employee earns less than HK$7,100 per month, he/she will have to contribute 5% of his/her relevant salary to the fund.

Employers are required to contribute 5% of their employees’ income to the MPF,  even if the employee is earning less than HK$7,100 per month.  The maximum employers’ contribution is HK$1,500 for employees earning more than HK$30,000 per month.  Employees can also voluntarily contribute more than the required 5%.
