Carers overlooked in new Concession Scheme
Carers NT was advised this morning that carers currently accessing the concession scheme will continue to receive the benefits of the concession card but new carers on the carer allowance will not be eligible to apply. Those on the carer payment will not be affected.
“Why should carers who are working or studying and therefore only receiving the carer allowance not the carer payment, be disadvantaged?”
