Learn how to utilise your seniors card to its full advantage
Once we reach the age of 61, we can apply to get a WA Seniors Card. In some cases, this will give seniors a discount on utility bills, so it is worth checking, as some of the discounts are quite substantial. Discounts may apply to:

Council rates
Water rates
Electricity
Vehicle License
Drivers license
Free off-peak travel
Regional transport

For more information on any of the above, click on this link.

There are also the following major places where you can use your Seniors card to obtain discounts:
