SUPER SAVINGS FOR SENIORS
Wednesday, 19 June 2019
The NSW Government’s new Seniors Savers Card is set to benefit hard-working seniors, who will soon be able to save hundreds of dollars a year.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said all people aged over 60 and working more than 20 hours a week will be eligible to receive discounts at more than 7000 businesses including restaurants, cinemas and hairdressers across the state.
“Seniors who choose to stay in the workforce can benefit from the thousands of discounts and services under the NSW Seniors Card Program,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Seniors have given so much to our community, and they deserve to have some relief. I know many seniors in our region are feeling the growing pressure of everyday living costs and this new card means they can save money for the things that matter to them.”
Previously, only seniors over the age of 60 working less than 20 hours a week were able to access the Seniors Card. These new changes will ensure more people can benefit from discounts on services and entertainment.
Minister for Seniors John Sidoti said the NSW Government recognises and values the contribution seniors make to our society.
“With people working longer and retiring later, fewer are qualifying for a Seniors Card at age 60, so the introduction of this new card means seniors across the state won’t miss out on being part of the savings bonanza,” Minister Sidoti said.
The Seniors Savers Card is one of more than 70 NSW Government rebates and savings available as part of the NSW Government’s Cost of Living initiative.
