Pensioners in New England get their Pensioner Concession Card returned

Former part-pensioners in the New England will have their Pensioner Concession Card reinstated from this week. These former part-pensioners lost the card in January as a consequence of reforms to the pension assets test.

“Those reforms provided increased pension for people with lower levels of assets, while some part-pensioners with high levels of assets lost access to their part-pensions,” Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce, said.
