Families in NSW can save up to $2000 each year through three new cost of living measures introduced on 1 July 2019.
The new cost of living measures will provide:
- half price rego for eligible drivers under the expanded Toll Relief program
- two $100 Active Kids Vouchers every year for each child
- rebates of up to $200 each year for seniors through the Seniors Energy Rebate.
Over the last year, Service NSW’s Cost of Living program has delivered more than $800 million in savings. On average, each person has saved $550.
The NSW Government expects to deliver more than $1 billion in savings back to households through more than 70 initiatives in the Cost of Living program.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said putting downward pressure on cost of living pressures is a key priority of the NSW Government.
“Service NSW’s Cost of Living program has had 1.2 million transactions so far, helping thousands of people across NSW,” Ms Berejiklian said.
NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet is encouraging every person in NSW to visit a Service NSW Centre or use the Savings Finder online to see what they’re eligible for.
“The NSW Government have made it easier than ever before for people to save money on their bills,” Mr Perrottet said.
