Reinstatement of Pensioner Concession Card22 Aug 2017 - 16:00
Starting from 9 October 2017, the Pensioner Concession Card (PCC) will be reinstated to former pension recipients whose payments were cancelled on 1 January 2017 due to the changes to the assets test. This means those former pensioners will once again enjoy entitlement to a range of concessions and PCC benefits.
The PCC will be automatically reissued starting from 9 October 2017, with an ongoing income and assets test exemption. Other eligibility requirements, such as residency conditions, will still need to be met.
The reissue of the PCC to former pension recipients will support the ability of this group to access discounts and concessions offered by states, territories and private providers.
You can find out more about PCC on the Department of Social Services website.
