Rates concessions and rates hardship relief

Rebates are available to ease the rate burden for pensioners in the City of Port Phillip. Please visit Victorian Health and Human Services to check your eligibility for rates and other concessions.

The pension rebate is only available to pensioners living at the property they are applying for. The applicant must not have been granted a rebate on any other property within the same financial year.

To apply for a pension rebate on your rates and charges you can call council on 9209 6777 and request an application form with a reply paid envelope be sent to your address to be completed and returned by mail.


Alternatively you can complete and sign the application below, then scan and email with a copy of your pension card to rates@portphillip.vic.gov.au

You will only need to provide your pension details or ownership details once; in subsequent years, the pension rebate will be automatically calculated on your rates account, provided you are still eligible.

To complete an application, complete the Victorian Government’s Municipal Rates Concession application form (PDF 461 KB).
