More discount benefits extended to seniors

FOR the first time, NSW residents over the age of 60 will be eligible to receive discounts on products and services offered by businesses through the NSW Seniors Card program.
 
Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies announced the new Senior Savers Card would be available from July 1, for senior residents who are not yet eligible for the existing Seniors Card. 
 
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals have worked hard to deliver more savings than ever before to our Seniors Card members and this new card will mean no one is left out,” Ms Berejiklian said.
 
The NSW Seniors Card will continue to provide existing benefits to its 1.6 million members on anything from mechanics, to hairdressers, to phone bills, while Senior Savers Card holders will have access to the same discounts and deals with the exclusion of NSW Government rebates and transport concessions. 
 
Mrs Davies said that welcoming seniors into the program who still work more than 20 hours a week made sense. 
 
“We understand a lot of people are working longer and retiring later. The introduction of the Senior Savers Card is a way for the NSW Government to give back to these individuals for their tireless contribution,” Mrs Davies said. 
 
Over the past 12 months, members have enjoyed increased benefits from an additional 1800 businesses and a major supermarket deal. More than 7300 businesses currently offer savings to members statewide, a 32 per cent increase on this time last year.
