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

Travel under the previous scheme

Travel is now administered under the NT Seniors Recognition Scheme which came into effect on 1 July 2018. Some members of the previous NT Pensioner and Carer Concession Scheme may have applied to use a travel concession prior to the scheme ending on 30 June 2018.
 
Eligible members must have booked their travel before 1 July 2018 and have travelled and summited a claim for reimbursement to Territory Families by 30 September 2018.
