Hongkong Post today (April 27) announced the launch of the EPS EasyCash for Senior Citizens service in collaboration with EPS Company at seven post offices from today. This service offers an alternative and convenient means of cash withdrawal to senior citizens by enabling them to withdraw a small amount of cash in their local community.
Holders of senior citizen cards can withdraw cash in multiples of $100 using bank cards with ATM function at designated post offices without making purchases or paying transaction fees, subject to a cap of $500 for each transaction and a maximum of two transactions per bank card per day.
The seven designated post offices are located mainly on the outlying islands and in the New Territories. They are Cheung Chau Post Office, Mui Wo Post Office, Peng Chau Post Office, Tai O Post Office, Shun Lee Post Office, Tin Yuet Post Office and Tsat Tsz Mui Post Office. The elderly are welcome to use the EPS EasyCash for Senior Citizens service at these post offices during their business hours. The selection of the seven post offices is based on the advice of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and operational considerations, with a view to complementing the existing cash withdrawal network for senior citizens.
