Cost of Living Rebate

The Cost of Living Rebate (COLR) scheme was introduced by the state government to assist WA Seniors Card holders to meet increased living expenses. ​Each July, the State Government makes an automatic payment into the registered Seniors Card holders bank accounts. New members must apply on or before May 31 each year. No reapplication is needed, however the WA Seniors Card Centre should be advised of any changes to your details.
