Cost of Living Concession

For all Age Pensioners and Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card holders (and other Concession beneficiaries) in SA, now is the time to apply for your Cost of Living Concession if you haven’t already…

This year’s Cost of Living Concession is a one off payment of at least $224.60 and Age Pensioners can get up to $449.  

  The application process is pretty simple by entering some basic details online (or via the paper form) but you do need to apply before December 31, 2022 to receive the payment. For those who have already registered in previous years, the payments will be made from August 2022 assuming your circumstances have not changed (i.e. eligibility for your concession card/allowance).   For more details and to apply, see the link: https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/care-and-support/concessions/household-concessions/cost-of-living-concessions Also, the Department of Human Services have made available a “Concession Finder” tool available so you can now match any of SA Gov’s other concessions to your relevant Concession card, see below: https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/care-and-support/concessions/concession-finder
