The South Australian Government offers a range of concessions for eligible South Australians to help with the cost of household and other expenses, such as energy use, water rates and public transport.

Visit the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion website to find comprehensive information on the concessions available.

 From 1 July 2015 the State Government elected to replace the concession on Council rates with a “Cost Of Living Concession (CLC)” payment provided directly to those entitled.

This payment may be used for any purpose, including offsetting Council rates.

For questions regarding the CLC and to check eligibility please contact the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion Concessions Hotline directly on 1800 307 758 or go to the Cost of Living Concession Website for further information
