Seniors living in Willoughby now have access to even more businesses and service providers via the NSW Seniors Card.
Member for Willoughby Tim James said more than 140 new businesses have joined the Seniors Card program, which will help ease cost of living pressures on seniors while providing a boost to many small businesses.
“This is one of several NSW Government initiatives to help seniors with cost of living pressures including toll relief and energy rebates,” Mr James said.
“The Seniors Card for over-60s has thousands of discounts covering groceries, tradies, holidays, insurance and services such as accountants and medical care. Businesses signing up to the program get more people through the door so it’s a win-win.”
Among the new businesses joining the program are dental surgeries, pubs and hotels, health and wellness centres and home cleaning service providers.
Mr James said the over 140 new additions join more than 6,500 businesses already helping ease the cost of living for seniors across retail, food and beverage, travel, and professional services.
“Each and every one are offering a range of discounts to cardholders, some even up to 30 per cent. This means seniors are able to take some pressure off the household budget and keep more money in their back pocket,” Mr James said.
“I encourage more businesses to sign up and open their door to more than 1.9 million seniors across NSW.”
Seniors also have access to the digital version of the NSW Seniors Card, with more than 120,000 people taking up the digital option since its launch in April.
