  Change of Membership Status 

Current members who wish to change their membership status during the year are not required to pay their new status’ subscription fee if they have already settled their old status’ subscription fee.

  Reinstatement of Membership Status 

Members who have let their membership lapsed are required to pay a reinstatement charge of HK$500 plus the 2017/18 annual subscription fee if they wish to restore their membership status.

For the reason of relocation overseas or retirement, members who have resigned can receive a waiver of reinstatement charge.

  Deferral and Waiver of Subscription Fees 

Members in good standing who become involuntarily unemployed and are seeking full-time employment may be entitled to apply for a deferral of subscription fees at the time the subscription fee become payable (on 1 October).

The deferral will terminate if the members become employed during the membership year (being 1 October to 30 September) at which time the pro-rata balance of the current year’s subscription dues are payable.  Members will be responsible for informing the ASHK of the change in employment status.

The deferred subscription fees may be waived at membership year’s end upon submission of a declaration form that members remained unemployed for the entire year and are actively seeking employment.

A subscription fees waiver for unemployment may be granted for a maximum of 2 consecutive years.  Requests for a continuation of subscription fee waiver must be submitted annually and the employment status reaffirmed.

Members whose deferral or waiver request have been approved is entitled to receive the ASHK general mailings free of charge for the period under consideration.  Should the members wish to attend the luncheon of the Annual General Meeting, an appropriate charge will apply.

To apply, please submit an application form to the ASHK  Office.  Approval of requests will be at the Council’s discretion.  Once approved, members should also keep the ASHK immediately informed of any change in circumstances which may affect their entitlement.

  Discounted Rate for Retired Members 

Retired members are granted a discounted rate of 80% on membership subscription fee and exemption from CPD requirements.

From membership year 2017/2018 onwards, this applies to members who are no longer in receipt of any income from gainful employment and no longer provide actuarial services.  Special circumstances will be considered by the Council on a case-by-case basis upon written request to the ASHK Office.

The Council also agreed to grandfather current retired members whose status was first approved before 30 September 2017 as long as they continue to be eligible under the former criteria (that is, attainment of age 65 or above and no longer in full-time employment at the point of application).
