Are you missing out on energy concessions?
Don't miss out on government support
Ongoing energy concessions can help reduce electricity and gas bills. Today, many people are facing increasing energy prices and other cost-of-living pressures; however, around 60% of people who are eligible for ongoing concessions are not taking them up.
Do you, or someone you know, have a Commonwealth concession card such as a Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card, Centrelink HealthCare Card or Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card?
Then you may be missing out on energy concessions that are yours.
So, how do you get what's yours?
Do you live in the NT?
If you’re in the Northern Territory, call 1800 777 704 or go to nt.gov.au and see the NT Concession Scheme.
For embedded networks
If you get your energy from your strata or landlord in a caravan park, apartment building or retirement home or village (via an embedded network) you can also ask these energy providers today.
Who is more likely to be missing out?
From our June 2023 research in partnership with independent outcome evaluators at Melbourne University’s Melbourne Institute, as part of Taking the Pulse of the Nation survey, shows who is more likely to be missing out on energy concessions.
