Your prepaid card
If you join the Northern Territory (NT) Seniors Recognition Scheme, you will get a $500 prepaid card each financial year.
You can choose how you want to use your payment.
How much you can spend
You can choose how much you want to spend on purchases.
For example, you can use:
- the maximum $500 amount in one transaction or
- a portion at a time for multiple transactions.
If the purchase is more than $500, you must pay for any extra costs.
Minimum transaction value and split payments
As long as your prepaid card has funds available, there is no:
- minimum transaction value or
- limit to the number of transactions you can make on your card.
Businesses may restrict multiple payment options.
If the value of your purchase is more than the balance on the card, you will need to check that split payments are available.
