The Victorian Seniors card is available to all Victorian residents who are aged 60+ and work less than 35 hours per week. Residents who are eligible by age but still working full time can apply for a Seniors Business Discount Card. These cards are no longer automatically issued to people upon turning 60, and require an application to obtain.
To apply for a Seniors Card, go to the Seniors Online website and complete an online application form. Alternatively, obtain a paper form from any library. Applications may be made up to three weeks before a person’s 60th birthday or any time after that. Once your application is received it will take around four weeks for your card to be mailed out.
If you need to update your address details, request a replacement card or cancel a card, these things can all be done via the Manage Your Details section of the website. Alternatively call 1300 797 210 during business hours.
The Frequently Asked Questions section of the website provides lots of information and tips about using your card.
