Changes to Northern Territory concessions

On the 2 May 2017, the Northern Territory Treasurer announced $33 million dollars for a new Northern Territory Concessions Scheme.

What is happening?

  • The current scheme is complex, unfair and open to fraud and rorting.
  • The new scheme will be fairer and more accessible.
  • The new scheme will be introduced on 1 January 2018.
  • All senior Territorians aged 65 years and over will receive a minimum of $700 every two years.
  • A discussion paper will be released for public consultation in June with consultation to occur in June and July.

For more information read the Northern Territory Concessions Review - fact sheet.

Information on the public consultation and changes to the scheme will be updated on this website.
