The 2017/18 Federal Budget has reinstated access to Pensioner Concession Cards to those seniors who had lost these cards when they lost the aged pension due to the adjustment in the means test.
It was unclear as to whether Brisbane City Council would accept this change and pass on concessions to those effected. It has been confirmed seniors in this situation can now access the concessions once the new card is issued. It is advised that they should attend a Brisbane City Council Business Centre to register and show new card.
At this stage, we are unclear what the situation is in other local authorities.
