The NT Seniors Recognition Scheme recognises the valuable contribution seniors make to the Territory.
The new scheme provides more support to seniors and now includes travel within the NT. Members who don’t travel can use the $500 payment for electricity and water bills.
Choosing how to use your payment
The NT Seniors Recognition Scheme provides members with an annual payment of $500.
The payment can be used for travel, electricity and/or water. Each year, members will be asked how they would like to use the payment.
The payment can be used in the following ways:
- The whole amount for one category; $500 electricity or $500 water or $500 travel.
- $250 for two categories – choose electricity/travel ($250/$250) or water/travel ($250/$250) or electricity/water ($250/$250).
You can only use $500 each year.
