Some NSW Government rebates and savings
More savings for seniors and pensioners....
For CSHC holders (see link): Seniors Energy Rebate – $200 rebate for seniors to help cover the cost of electricity
For those aged 60 or over (see link) and note below: NSW Seniors Card or Senior Savers Card – enjoy discounts and special offers at thousands of businesses across NSW.
As a NSW permanent resident aged 60 or over, you can apply for:
a NSW Seniors Card if you're averaging 20 hours or less of paid work a week across a 12-month period, or
a NSW Senior Savers Card if you're averaging more than 20 hours of paid work a week across a 12-month period.
Both cards are free and give you discounts and special offers at over 7,500 businesses across NSW including shops, restaurants and professional services. Many interstate businesses also provide discounts on request.
The NSW Seniors Card gives you access to the Gold Opal Card transport concessions and public transport concessions Australia-wide.
If you reduce your paid employment to 20 hours a week or less (averaged over 12 months), or you retire completely, you can convert your Senior Savers Card to a Seniors Card.
