Rates rebate for pensioners

If you're a pensioner living in Ku-ring-gai, you may be entitled to a rebate on your council rates. To qualify for the pension rates rebate you must own and occupy a property in Ku-ring-gai.

Eligible pensioners can receive a statutory reduction of 50% of the combined rates and domestic waste management charge, to a maximum value of $250.

To claim this rebate you must be a holder of either:

  • A pensioner concession card from Centrelink or Veterans' Affairs

To receive your rebate first check the front of your yearly rate notice for details. If there is no pension rebate shown, simply bring your card to the Customer Service counter at the Council Chambers building and complete an application form.
