Rebates for Pensioners

To be an eligible pensioner, you must hold either a:

  • Blue concession card from Centrelink

  • Gold Card from the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

Your property must also be your sole or principal residence. 

Eligible pensioners are entitled to a rebate of up to $250 comprised of half of the total of the Ordinary Rates and Domestic Waste Management Service Charge. This amount is fixed by the NSW Government.

If you applied for a rebate prior to 1 July 2016, we are also pleased to extend a voluntary additional rebate to eligible pensioners in the local area of $75 per rating assessment. New applications after this date will receive the standard pensioner concession rebate.
