Pensioner rebates

For the 2023/2024 financial year we are providing eligible pension card holders with an additional $204.10 concession. This is in addition to the concession for 2023/2024, which all Victorian councils provide.

You are eligible for a $204.10 rebate on your rates for your principal place of residence if you hold a:

  • Pensioner Concession Card — issued by Centrelink or Department of Veterans’ Affairs
  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card — War Widow (WW)
  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card — Totally and Permanently Incapacitated (TPI).

Additional concession

In addition, the Municipal rates concession provides a 50% discount off your Council rates up to a maximum of $253.20 plus an additional $50.00 concession that is set-off against your fire service levy charges.

People who receive unemployment benefits, Youth Allowance or hold a health care card can only apply for the rebate if they also hold a pensioner concession card.
