- Up to $250 on all ordinary rates and charges for domestic waste management services
- Up to $87.50 on water rates or charges
- Up to $87.50 on sewerage rates or charges
To become an eligible pensioner you must be liable for the rates and charges on a property. This property will need to be your sole or principal residence, and you must have a current pensioner concession card.
