Age Pension Fringe Benefits Card

Once a person receives any income payments via the Age Pension Scheme they will receive a pension card within 10 to 15 days. This card provides major discounts for State and Local Government services and various utilities. The discounts include:

  • Rates,
  • Gas, water and electricity,
  • Public transport,
  • Medical treatments.

Even retailers may give discounts such as at the Movies and special pensioner discount days.

The discounts especially mount up for pharmaceutical and medical treatments. An average couple could expect to save $2,000 to $3,000 per year.
