Pensioner Concession/Rebate

Concessions are available for eligible pensioners. To be an eligible pensioner you must receive a pension from either Centrelink or the Department of Veterans' Affairs, and be entitled to a pensioner concession card or Gold Card issued by the Commonwealth Government. You can only claim a concession on the property if it is the sole or principal place you live.

You need to complete a pensioner concession application form available from Council.

Pensioner Concession

Section 575 of the Local Government Act, 1993 allows pensioner concession cardholders to claim rebates on their general rates, domestic waste, water and sewerage charges.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You must own the dwelling for which a concession is sought and it must be occupied as your sole or principal place of residence.

  • You will be required to produce your pensioner concession card as proof of entitlement prior to gaining a pension rebate

  • Persons, who become eligible pensioners or cease to be eligible pensioners during the year, will be granted a concession proportionate to the number of full quarters in which they were eligible.

  • Where eligible pensioners share ownership with non-eligible pensioners, the amount of concession will also be determined on the proportionate equity in the property.

Applying for a Rebate

Contact Council’s Rates Department requesting a Pension Rebate Application form or simply call into the Council Office, 35 Jerilderie Street, Jerilderie NSW 2716 with your current Centrelink or Department of Veteran Affairs card.
