Department of Communities – Seniors Card Unit
If you are over 60 you are eligible for either a Seniors Card or a Seniors Business Discount Card. SENIORS CARD Offers Government Concessions and Business Discounts for Queensland residents: * Either 65 years and over and working less than 35 hours per week, or * Aged 60 to 64; working less than 35 hours per week; and receiving a concession card from either Centrelink or the Department of Veterans Affairs. SENIORS BUSINESS DISCOUNT CARD Offers business discounts only and is available to all Queensland residents aged 60 and over who do not qualify for a Seniors Card. Seniors Business Discount Card holders are automatically upgraded to a Seniors Card once they turn 65 provided they are working less than 35 hours per week. Seniors Card and Seniors Business Discount Card are issued to cardholders as permanent lifetime cards. This means that they do not expire and they do not need to be renewed. However, if a cardholder loses their card, they may simply call Seniors Card to be issued with a replacement.
