Rates - Pensioner Concessions

The new State Government Cost of Living Concession for pensioners, low-income earner and self-funded retirees who hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card came into effect on 1 July 2015.

This means concessions will no longer be applied to council rates notices. The new concession will be paid directly to eligible residents by cheque or directly into their bank account.

Those residents who received the council rates concession directly will not need to apply separately for the Cost of Living Concession.

To download the Application Form for the concession, please visit www.sa.gov.au/concessions/costofliving or contact the Concessions Hotline on 1800 307 758.

Application forms can also be obtained from our office located at 324 Commercial Street West, Mount Gambier.
