Pensioner Concession Cards will be reinstated for those people who lost eligibility due to asset tes
From the 9th of October Pensioner Concession Cards will be reinstated for those people who lost eligibility due to asset test changes on the first of January this year. The card isn’t income or assets tested, however you still need to meet other eligibility requirements. Your card may take up to 14 days to arrive in the mail. It'll be sent automatically if you’re eligible. You can use your Low Income Health Care Card until you get your Pensioner Concession Card in the mail. You’ll also get to keep your Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card to make sure you continue to receive all of the benefits.
