New cost of living centres to help households save
The appointment service will review over 40 rebates and savings available for eligible individuals and families, saving households an average of $550.
The appointment service has been rolled out across Service NSW Centres in Wynyard, Lismore, Parramatta, Taree, Wetherill Park, Wagga Wagga, Coffs Harbour, Kempsey, Tweed Heads and Inverell, with a statewide rollout by the end of 2018.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said many households aren’t aware of the various NSW Government savings and rebates on offer.
“We know many households still aren’t aware of the more than 40 NSW Government hip pocket measures on offer. We look forward to helping hundreds more households discover what rebates and savings they’re eligible for as this service rolls out further across NSW,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Since we launched our one-stop shop service across Service NSW Centres we have helped more than 160 households claiming more than $45,000 in savings and identifying more than $59,000 in savings.”
Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello said the NSW Government is delivering on its promise of alleviating cost of living pressures for families throughout NSW.
“There are potential savings to be found on the FuelCheck app, Free Rego, Active Kids vouchers, the Family Energy Rebate and more, and a family with two children could save more than $800,” Mr Dominello said.
“This service provides families with access to an individually tailored one-stop shop service to help them claim NSW Government rebates and refunds.”
Service NSW can arrange an interpreter to assist customers with disabilities or who speak a language other than English.
The service is available at selected Service NSW Centres by appointment, online or by calling 13 77 88.
