Rates concessions for pensioners
If you have a valid Pensioner Concession Card you can get a concession for a rebate of up to $241.00 on your rates and $50.00 on your Fire Services Property Levy.
This only applies to eligible pensioners who live within the Surf Coast Shire. It does not apply to Health Care Card holders.
