The 1st Switching of Application Plans for 2019 – “Provident Fund Scheme for Workers in the Public Services”

The Pension Fund has selected 8th March 2019 as the first switching day of application plans under the Provident Fund Scheme in 2019, and the remaining switchings for the current year will take place during the months of June, September and December respectively.

Members should pay attention to the followings:

“Switching Information Desk”
From late January until the beginning of February, the Pension Fund will distribute an individual envelope containing statements ﹝include: Annual Benefit Statement, Account Transactions and Application Summary (available in Chinese and Portuguese only)﹞ and a Newsletter (no.39) to each member through service departments. Members who have registered to use the electronic document services could login “My Online Account” or “Switching Information Desk” through the desktop version of Pension Fund’s website to consult the related documents;

If members intend to switch their application plans, they should consult the guideline for filling out the switching declaration form firstly. All information and the distribution percentages in the switching declaration forms should be filled in completely and correctly. In accordance with the law, the signed declaration forms shall be submitted to the Pension Fund through the service departments that the members belong to, before the submission deadlines determined by their service departments. The Pension Fund will not process any declaration forms with errors, omissions or incompleteness;

The switching declaration forms (available in Chinese and Portuguese only) and the guidelines could be obtained through the service departments that the members belong to, or be downloaded through the Pension Fund’s website. The reminders of filling out the form are added in the switching declaration forms of our website. Members are suggested to download and to fill in the forms through our website;

If members intend to maintain the current situation unaltered and decide not to switch the application plans, it is not necessary for them to fill in and submit the declaration forms;

In order to support environmental protection, the frequency of distributing paper account documents will be reduced, since this year, from a quarterly basis to half-yearly, i.e. in this time and late July respectively.
