COST OF LIVING SERVICE GOES ‘LIVE’ IN LISMORE
Residents in Lismore and nearby areas can now make an appointment for help accessing more than 40 NSW Government rebates and savings across more than 12 separate agencies, with the Lismore Service NSW Centre becoming a one-stop shop for cost of living support.
Booking for the Cost of Living Appointment Service is now live at Lismore and Taree on the Service NSW website and could potentially save households hundreds of dollars a year.
Member for Lismore Thomas George joined staff at the Lismore Service NSW Centre today to officially launch the new service and encouraged locals to go online and check their eligibility for dozens of rebates and savings. The next step is to make a booking online or over the phone with a specialist at the local Service NSW Centre.
“With more than 40 NSW Government rebates and incentives, there are potential savings to be found on energy bills, transport, health and more,” Mr George said.
“This service provides Lismore families with access to an individually tailored one-stop shop service to help them claim these rebates and refunds.”
Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello said the NSW Government is easing cost of living pressures for families throughout NSW in as many ways as possible.
“Families are key beneficiaries with the Cost of Living service through programs such as Active Kids vouchers and the Family Energy Rebate. Motorists can save with CTP Green Slip refunds and the FuelCheck app,” Mr Dominello said.
“The process is simple and easy and can be done online, over the phone or face to face.”
The Cost of Living Appointment Service will roll out to more than 50 Service Centres this year but anyone can review the list of rebates and savings online.
The service can be accessed by visiting: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/cost-living, calling 13 77 88 or making an appointment with a Cost of Living Specialist at the Lismore Service NSW Centre at 58 Ballina Road, Lismore.
