Apply for pensioner rates concessions

Pensioners and seniors

Eligible pensioners or seniors may qualify for a concession from Council rates and the Emergency Services Levy and in some circumstances, to rubbish service charges. For the 2021/22 financial year, the pensioner rates capped amount is remaining at $750. Seniors will have their rebates capped at a maximum amount of $100.

To register for a concession, please visit the Water Corporation’s rates concession page. This application will register you with the Water Corporation and the City of Perth via the one form. Once it is approved by the Water Corporation it will be forwarded to the City of Perth to process on the rates account.  

The City does not administer the laws in regards to pensioner concessions. If you wish to lodge a complaint regarding the capping amounts for concessions, please contact your local MP.
