The NSW Government has today announced more NSW seniors will receive discounts and offers through the Seniors Card program.
Minister for Ageing Tanya Davies today announced a new Senior Saver Card which will be available to NSW Seniors over the age of 60 who do not meet the work eligibility requirements for the existing Seniors Card.
Mrs Davies said the new card will complement the existing Seniors Card which already provides savings to its 1.6 million members.“The NSW Government is committed to reducing the cost of living for seniors through the Seniors Card program,” Mrs Davies said.
“I am delighted to announce the new Senior Saver Card that will allow even more seniors in our state to benefit from the competitive deals and offers available under the program.”
The eligibility requirements for the new Senior Saver Card will be the same as the current Seniors Card, except there will be no restrictions based on the number of hours an individual works.
The new card will provide access to discounts offered by participating businesses, excluding transport concessions.
“We understand that a lot of older people are now working longer and more than ever before. The introduction of the Senior Saver Card is a way to say thanks to these individuals by easing the financial burden,” Mrs Davies added.
“The new card will not only ensure more seniors have access to fantastic savings, but more local businesses will benefit who are part of the program.”
The new Senior Saver Card will be available later in the year. Individuals wanting to express interest in becoming a member are encouraged to visit the Seniors Card website for more information.
Since the NSW Government introduced the Seniors Card program in 1992, it has grown to be a trusted and valued resource for its 1.6 million members and over 7,400 participating businesses.
