Who is eligible?
Under State legislation some pensioners are eligible to receive a concession off their rate account. The amounts of the concessions available on an annual basis are fixed by legislation. Currently eligible pensioners are entitled to a rebate of 50% of their combined rates and charges, up to a maximum of $250.
If you receive a pension or benefit you may be eligible for a concession even though someone else may jointly own and occupy the property.
- You must be an eligible pensioner.
- You must occupy the dwelling for which a concession is sought as your sole or principal place of living.
- Evidence of eligibility will be required.
- Persons who become or cease to be eligible pensioners during the year will receive a concession proportionate to the number of full quarters in which they are an eligible pensioner.
