The Queensland Government has recently extended the Electricity Rebate to Commonwealth Health Care Card holders and asylum seekers. Eligible households can receive a rebate of $330 (GST inclusive) on their electricity bills.
Health Care Card holders and asylum seekers can contact their electricity retailer to apply for the rebate. The concession will be back-dated to 1 January 2017 depending on eligibility. Once eligibility has been verified by retailers, customers should start seeing the rebate on their next bill.
Eligible Health Care Card holders and asylum seekers must apply by 30 June 2017 to have their rebate back-dated to January.
