"EPS Easy Cash for Senior Citizens" is designed for and will benefit Hong Kong's elderly population. It will allow elders to withdraw small sums of cash at designated Circle K convenience stores, without having to make a purchase.

Raymond So, General Manager at EPS Company (Hong Kong) Limited said: "Launching 'EPS EasyCash for Senior Citizens' jointly with Circle K convenience stores serves to enhance convenience to elderly people in using financial services through EPS. We hope to engage more business partners in the future, and we planned to expand the coverage of this service to most districts in Hong Kong by the end of 2018."

Mr. Richard Yeung, Chief Executive Officer of Convenience Retail Asia Limited said: "Making customer's life easier is Circle K's core motto. That is why we are excited about partnering with EPS in launching the enhanced EasyCash service. With Circle K's extensive network, we hope to provide the community in need with a convenient and fast cash withdrawal channel through this cooperation."

"EPS Easy Cash for Senior Citizens" is a simple and user-friendly service. Elders simply have to present their senior citizen card and ATM card issued by EPS member banks at the counters of designated Circle K convenience stores. Circle K staff will assist elders in completing an EPS transaction for making small cash withdrawals of up to HK$500 (in multiples of HK$100). No purchase will be required in using this service. Each ATM card of elder can use the service at a maximum of twice a day with no service charge.

Senior citizens can make withdrawals during non-peak business hours -- any time except between 7:30am and 10am. Stores may temporarily suspend withdrawal services if there is insufficient cash available -- customers may enquire from store employees in advance.

In the first phase, the service will commence in 34 Circle K convenience stores across Tin Shui Wai, Sheung Shui, Yuen Long, Cheung Chau and Tung Chung, Lantau Island. By the end of 2018, the service shall be available at the majority of Circle K convenience stores in Hong Kong.
