Seniors in the Goulburn electorate are continuing to embrace digital with more than 100,000 people across the state now taking advantage of the digital Seniors Card.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said while there would always be a non-digital version, it was great to see so many seniors taking advantage of the digital option to access discounts and benefits on dining out, entertainment and travel.
“This milestone shows the seniors of NSW are confidently using digital products and demonstrates the real impact and benefits these solutions can have in all age groups,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“After a successful pilot in March involving 4,000 people, we are currently seeing more than 30,000 people across the state getting their digital Seniors Card each month.
Mrs Tuckerman said it was great to see 100,000 people take up the digital option in just a few months.
“The Seniors Card has come a long way since it was first introduced in 1992, it is now the largest program of its kind in Australia,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“For 30 years, it has been helping ease the cost of living for card holders by providing access to discounts and rebates at shops, travel, entertainment, and professional services providers.
“There are more than 6,500 businesses and service providers across NSW with discounts, and I encourage more to follow.”
