If you receive a pension, you may qualify for a rebate on your water bill. 

To be eligible, you’ll need a:

  • Pensioner Concession Card from Centrelink or Department of Veterans' Affairs, or
  • gold Health Card (also known as a gold card) that shows:
    • war widow
    • war widower
    • extreme disablement adjustment (EDA)
    • totally and temporarily incapacitated (TTI)
    • totally and permanently incapacitated (TPI).

You’ll also need to be the owner and occupier of one of the following:

  • single dwelling
  • dual occupancy
  • strata or company title unit
  • unit in a retirement village with a life term lease.

If you own the property with someone who isn't a pensioner, you may still get a rebate. This depends on your relationship with the other owner(s) and your eligibility.

Rebates are applied to each bill. 

To apply, contact your water supplier directly.
