Engagement Evening with


Mrs. Rachel Cartland

(Former Assistant Director of HKSAR Social Welfare Department) 

Facilitator: George Cautherley


The Past & Future of Universal Retirement Protection Scheme in Hong Kong

Engagement Evening, the public engagement series organized by Community Development Initiative, is honored to have Mrs. Rachel Cartland, Former Assistant Director of HKSAR Social Welfare Department, to be our sharing guest.

The retirement protection policy has been under discussion in Hong Kong over 30 years. Last month, Professor Nelson Chow from the University of Hong Kong presented the findings of the study on “Future Development of Retirement Protection in Hong Kong”. It suggests the provision of a monthly pension of $3,000 for all aged 65 or above without any mean test, and the introduction of payroll old age tax, resulting in different opinions among stakeholders in HK.

Several community groups believe the universal retirement protection scheme should able to supplement the insufficiency of present retirement system, in order to solve the problem of aging population and poor elderly, leading to a basic living od elderly with higher dignity. However, other reckons that the suggestion of study might bring long-term financial burden and affect its feasibility and sustainability. The government also agrees the scheme can only be implemented before social consensus is made.

What have the past and existing social security systems in Hong Kong gone wrong? How to achieve the balance between a variety of concerns in order to have an effective retirement protection for a better Hong Kong?
