THE TWO SCHEMES

Two new schemes for Northern Territory residents that support eligible pensioners, including aged pension recipients, with the cost of living and recognise the valuable contribution seniors continue to make to the Northern Territory.

 

NT CONCESSION SCHEME

A means-tested scheme supporting eligible Territorians with the cost of living.

NT SENIORS RECOGNITION SCHEME

Recognising the valuable contribution senior Territorians make to the Northern Territory. All senior Territorians 65 years or older, are eligible for this scheme

FAQ - I am a member of the current scheme, will I automatically become a member of the NT Concession scheme?

Existing scheme members will be transitioned to the NT Concession Scheme. Members will continue to receive the concessions that were available as part of the previous scheme.

Members will need to confirm eligibility by 31 December, 2018 to continue to receive concessions. Members who did not confirm their details have had their membership cancelled.

Membership cancellations can be appealed. For more information see existing members.
