• Pensioners and Seniors Rebate Scheme

    The Pensioners and Seniors Rebate Scheme provides concessions to eligible pensioners and seniors on their local government rates charges, the emergency services levy, underground electricity charges (if applicable) and water service charges. The concessions available are either a rebate on, or the deferment, of these charges.

    The concession on the cost of connecting underground electricity is only available if your house is included in the State Underground Power Program

    As from the commencement of the 2016-17 rating year (1 July 2016), if you claim a concession using a Pensioner Concession Card, State Concession Card, or WA Seniors Card and Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, the rebate will be limited to a maximum (capped) amount which is reviewed annually.

    Apply for a concession through the Water Corporation.
