Concessions are available to low income Victorians experiencing difficulty in paying their council rates, water, gas and electricity bills. Discounts are available on essential services to ease the financial burden for low income Victorians. For each concession and/or benefit, there is an eligibility criterion. Concessions programs are designed to ensure eligible cardholders have access to essential services.
The Victorian Seniors Card gives card holders access to thousands of discounts from a range of businesses throughout Victoria. The Victorian Seniors Card program produces two directories listing current discounts and offers available: a 'Retail and Services Directory' and a 'Tourism, Leisure and Recreation Directory'.
