$200 energy rebates for self-funded retirees

For the first time, around 130,000 self-funded retirees will be able to claim $200 a year to help with their power bills, thanks to a new initiative from the NSW Government aimed at taking cost of living pressure off seniors.

The rebates will be available to customers who hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card through Service NSW centres and online from 1 July 2019.

You can apply for the Seniors Energy Rebate if you:

  • are an independent retiree and NSW resident
  • have a valid Commonwealth Seniors Health Card
  • are the account holder, or one of the account holders, named on the electricity bill
