Helping our citizens make the most of their senior years
The NSW Government started the Seniors Card program in 1992 to help seniors access deals and initiatives for a more affordable life in retirement. The Senior Savers Card, introduced in 2019, expands discounts to the growing number of NSW seniors who are still working after age 60.
The program connects card holders to participating businesses that offer special discounts and deals. Through the print discount directory and online discount map, card holders can have greater access to their local communities through exclusive benefits.
Today, there are more than 1.9 million card holders across the state. It is a valuable source of business for thousands of astute companies that take part in the program.
