One listener did just that, asking about the MPF rules for next-of-kin after death. So we’ll look into that on this Saturday's Money Talk Xtra from 8:30 am on Radio 3, with Peter Lewis. Jimmy Lam will speak to a listener who is a newspaper reporter to find about his financial concerns. And in our investment segment, we’ll get some tips on how to be a good investor.

18/11/2017 - MPF - Rules for next-of-kin after death
Money Talk Xtra listener Yves Gomes emailed firstname.lastname@example.org and said; “The MPF is promoted as a retirement golden egg. There are rules for how and when you can encash it when alive. But in the case of death , how does the spouse or next of kin claim ? Why is it not so simple like insurance policies?” That’s a good question Yves. So to answer it Peter Lewis was joined by Derek Mok, from The Hong Kong Society of Financial Analysts & Chief Investment Officer at Convoy Asset Management.

Our listener Terry is one of them. He is a newspaper reporter and he spoke to Jimmy Lam earlier about his financial concerns. To help him get some advice, Jimmy also talked to former newspaper editor, Carlton Lai.
