Concessions

If you receive a pension, we may give you a concession on your bill.

Who gets the concession?

We'll give you a concession if you have either:

  • a Pensioner Concession Card from Centrelink or Department of Veterans' Affairs
  • a gold Repatriation Health Card from Department of Veterans' Affairs (also known as a gold card). Your card must show either:
    • War widow
    • War widower
    • Extreme disablement adjustment (EDA)
    • Totally and temporarily incapacitated (TTI)
    • Totally and permanently incapacitated (TPI).
We'll also give you a concession if you receive a Department of Veterans' Affairs intermediate rate pension.

To get a concession, you must own and live in your home. Your home must be a:

  • single dwelling
  • dual occupancy
  • strata or company title unit
  • unit in a retirement village with a life term lease.

If you own a property with someone who is not a pensioner, you may still get a concession. This will depend on your relationship with the other owners and your eligibility for the concession. 

What do we give?

Concession on service charges

We apply a concession to the service charges on each bill.


How do we calculate it?

We calculate your concession in the following way. 
Water service 100% of the quarterly service charge to a maximum of $28.51

How do you apply?

Simply call us on 13 20 92. We'll ask for your permission to check your pension details with Department of Veterans' Affairs or Centrelink.
