Cost of Living Concession

Pensioner Concessions, State Senior Card Ratepayer (Self-Funded Retiree) and Other Concessions

Until recently, the State Government funded concessions on Council rates. These concessions were formerly available to the holders of pensioner concession cards, veterans, low-income earners, unemployed, students and self-funded retirees. The State Government abolished all these concessions with effect from 30 June 2015. From 1 July 2015, the State Government has elected to replace these concessions with a single “cost of living payment” provided directly to those entitled. This payment may be used to offset Council rates. Note that not all former recipients of rates concessions will be entitled to the new payment.
