NT Concession Scheme – Update and Q&A
Presentation by: The Hon Dale Wakefield MLA – Minister for Seniors along with Ken Davies – CEO Territory Families
In August this year, the combined Seniors organisations (AIR, COTA, National Seniors and Palmerston Rural Seniors), created a petition with over 6,500 signatures which was tabled in the NT parliament, calling for a review of the current scheme to:
• Become the Seniors Concession Scheme
• All seniors 65+ to be equally included in any future Scheme
• Review the eligibility of all other participants
• Seniors with grandfathered entitlements
• Concessions to remain attached to existing utilities and services
• Cap power and water concessions to (say) the regional average
• Savings to be redistributed to existing concessions and ensure future sustainability of the scheme
• Travel concessions to remain an entitlement for seniors only
• Intra-Territory travel to be included
• Engagement of all seniors in the review process
