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 - At what age am I considered a senior?

Territorian men and women are eligible for the NT Seniors Recognition Scheme at 65 years old. Women who are 64 years old, who were grandfathered into the scheme from 2014, will be grandfathered into the new scheme as seniors.
