Former part-pensioners in the South West will have their Pensioner Concession Card (PCC) reinstated from this week.

“In reinstating the PCC, the Turnbull Government is ensuring over 590 Forrest former part-pensioners will be able to access those benefits again in the future,” Member for Forrest Nola Marino said.

A range of state/territory and local government and private sector benefits, such as discounted council rates and public transport. The benefits vary from state to state.

The PCC will be automatically reinstated from this week commencing Monday, 9th October and it’s expected that all those eligible will have their card within the next fortnight.

“Those expecting a reissued card don’t need to do anything to receive it, it will be sent to them automatically.

“They will also retain the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card, which continued to be provided after the January 2017 pension changes.”
