Seniors Card perks you may not know about

Seniors Card perks you may not know about

Seniors Cards can provide discounts on goods and services and benefits can vary depending on where you live in Australia.

The Australian Government website explains that each state and territory has a Seniors Card scheme and some reciprocal arrangements are in place for using your card in other states.

It is a free card providing transport concessions and participating business discounts on a range of goods and services.

To be eligible you must be a resident of the state, 60 years of age or over, and not working more than a set numbers of hours each week in paid employment.

While it's no secret that a Seniors Card can get you discounts on a wide range of goods and services, including concessions on public transport, there may be some Seniors Card benefits you don't know about and many are specific to where you live.
