The Seniors Energy Rebate is available to help cover the cost of electricity for eligible independent retirees who hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (CSHC)

The rebate is $200 per household, per financial year.

A household can only receive one Seniors Energy Rebate each financial year, no matter how many eligible retirees may live at the same address.

If your application is successful, the rebate will be paid directly into your nominated bank account.


To be eligible for the rebate you must:

  • be a NSW resident
  • have a valid CSHC from Centrelink or the Department of Veteran Affairs
  • be the primary account holder named on the electricity bill
  • be applying for the rebate for your primary place of residence.

Other conditions may apply.

Check your eligibility and apply at the Service NSW website.
