    Seniors/Pensioners concession Card

    Hi Does anyone know if its possible to get a pensioners concession card while on holiday? Seems all the touristy places that give discounts for over 65s want this concession card or seniors card before they give you anything off. We will be at our daughters in Sydney, so would have a 'proper' address. As we will be there for three weeks or so, it would be good to get if we could. Thanks in advance Pam (Saving for a CPV)

    WA Seniors Card

    WA seniors card eligibility rules expanded Sunday May 22nd 2011 Eligibility criteria for the West Australian seniors card has been expanded and the annual cost of living rebate has increased, the state government has announced in its budget. Seniors Minister Robyn McSweeney said expansion of seniors card eligibility will allow seniors who work 25 hours or less a week, averaged over a 12-month period, to apply for a card. "This expanded eligibility means up to 4500 WA seniors, in addition to the 312,000 existing card holders, can now apply for the WA seniors card," Mrs McSweeney said. "Annually, up to $1200 worth of government concessions and up to $550 worth of rebates is on offer." Mrs McSweeney said the expansion recognised that more seniors chose to remain in paid employment, or work part-time in their transition to retirement. WA seniors applying for a card following the expansion of the eligibility criteria will also be able to apply for this year's Cost of Living Rebate (COLR) until July 31. Mrs McSweeney said a $9.1 million allocation in 2011-12 would increase the previous COLR to WA seniors card holders, with singles due to receive $150 and couples to receive $225. In 2010-11, the COLR payment was made to 248,288 seniors card holders with singles receiving $104.80 and couples receiving $157.22. Concessions for senior cardholders include 50 per cent off a driver's licence, up to 25 per cent off annual water charges, and free public transport between 9am and 3.30pm on weekdays, public holidays and during Seniors Week in November.

    CPVs - seniors Cards

    Hi All To the CPV holders and applicants who are nowhere near 60 as yet, please accept my apologies! For those who may be, please see this link: Welcome to Seniors Card I was told about this card a few weeks ago by a CPV holder who has moved to Adelaide. He said that he & his wife are well-chuffed with their own cards now that they have lived in Adelaide for a few months. He says the discounts are well worthwhile there, but he does not know about the other States (understandably.) This card has nothing to do with Centrelink and has no impact at all on the CPV Bond. Instead, it is a straightforward perk of being 60 or over, having PR in Oz and working for 20 hours a week or less. I have never seen mention of this card on any of the forums until I heard about it via Poms in Adelaide. Best wishes Gill
