NT Pensioner and Carer Concession Scheme


The Northern Territory (NT) Pensioner and Carer Concession Scheme provides financial subsidies as concessions to members for a range of goods and services. 

Concessions help people on low incomes access important services such as water, energy, transport and housing.The scheme aims to:

  • provide an incentive for members to stay in the NT during retirement
  • help all pensioners, certain categories of low-income earners and carers with a range of cost of living expenses.

New schemes from July 2018

The concession scheme has been revised and changes will be introduced on 1 July 2018.

To find out more information about the changes and how they will affect you, go to the NT Concessions website.

Until 1 July 2018, the existing scheme concessions will remain unchanged for current members.

You can still apply to join the scheme before 1 July 2018, but you must meet the eligibility criteria.
