Another policy announced this week should provided some benefits to pensioners, self funded retirees, people with disabilities and their carers.  The Liberal Party have announced the following details:


  • An increase as of March 2008 in the Utilities Allowance paid to those in receipt of income support to meet basic household bills like power and gas from $107.20 to $500 a year for a single and $500 for a couple.
  • Utilities allowance extended to Carer Payment recipients and Disability Support Pensioners.
  • Seniors Concession Allowance to be increased to $500 from June 2008.  This will particularly benefit self funded retirees who do not receive the Age Pension.
