The Seniors Card entitles older Australians to a range of benefits provided by government and businesses. The card is free and is issued by every State and Territory government to eligible senior residents. It is issued in recognition of the contribution that seniors have made - and continue to make to the Australian community.
The card is available to Australians aged 60 years and over. Eligibility criteria and benefits vary slightly in each State and Territory.
