2020-21 Prepaid cards are being issued this month
All eligible members of the NT Seniors Recognition Scheme will transition across to the prepaid card from July 2020, giving them greater flexibility and choice on how to spend their $500 annual payment.
The prepaid cards help senior Territorians with the cost of fuel, travel, accommodation, phone and internet bills, and utilities bills, including gas, electricity and water.
The Northern Territory Government introduced the new prepaid card last year. The cards replace the paper travel vouchers, allowing senior Territorians to have immediate access to their annual payment and removing the need for reimbursement.
The prepaid cards also benefit Territory businesses. Businesses with an EFTPOS terminal registered in an approved merchant category can accept the prepaid cards.
All eligible members of the scheme will receive their NT Seniors Recognition Scheme prepaid card for the 2020-21 financial year over the next few weeks.
