The Local Government Act 1989 provides that eligible pensioners shall receive a reduction of rates levied. Application must be made via an Application for Concession on Municipal Rates and Charges form.
If individual pension details have not changed, it is not necessary to re-apply for the concession each year.
Please visit www.dhs.vic.gov.au/concessions/ for further information regarding the concession and for the application form.
Please Note. A Health Care Card does not entitle the holder to a rate reduction.
