• 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.

    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.

    • Holders of the Pensioner Concession Card or State Concession Card - the rebate is up to 50% for rates, limited to a maximum (capped) amount of $750.
    • Holders of the WA Seniors Card and the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card - the rebate is up to 50% for rates, limited to a maximum (capped) amount of $750.
    • Holders of the WA Seniors Card only - the rebate is up to 25% for rates, limited to a maximum (capped) amount of $100.

    Apply for a concession through the Water Corporation.
