This year, more than 300,000 WA Seniors Card holders will share in more than $22 million worth of payments, with singles and couples to receive $85.35 and $128 respectively.
The Liberal National Government is the only state government that provides a cash payment to its Seniors Card holders in recognition of the increasing cost pressure of daily life and the awareness that many seniors are living on low and fixed incomes.
Seniors and pensioners receive a discount on council and water rates. What is not always recognised is that it is not a discount as such. The State Government actually pays the difference on your behalf.
This payment is capped at $750 for council rates and $600 for water rates. This rebate is just one way to support our seniors and to acknowledge the enormous contribution they have made, and continue to make, to their local communities.
