Pensioner Rebates

If you are the holder of a Pensioner Concession Card issued by Centrelink or Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA), or the holder of a DVA Gold Card specifying TPI or War Widow, you may be eligible for a concession.

Eligible pensioners may receive 50 per cent off their rates to a maximum of $229.40. The state government annually indexes the pensioner rebate. Eligible pensioners may also receive a rebate of $50 off their Fire Services Property Levy. Ratepayers will be eligible for a concession where: 

  • The applicants name and address is the same on the Pensioner Concession Card and the Valuation and Rate Notice
  • The property is used exclusively for residential purposes by the applicant
  • The Concession Card is or was a valid card during the financial year

The cut off date for application is 30 June 2019.

To apply, please visit any of Council’s Service Centres or phone 9262 6333. Alternatively, download an application form from the Rates and Valuations section of the website.

If you received a rebate last year and your circumstances have not changed, you will automatically be granted a rebate this year.
