Synopsis
Hong Kong’s social welfare system provides cover to all residents in the event of disability, old age, death, unemployment and sickness. The public pension pillar covers those individuals in need of assistance. The occupational pillar, which is a compulsory defined-contribution (DC) scheme, was launched in 2000. The third pillar is a voluntary pension savings scheme.
