GOVERNMENT COST OF LIVING PROMO GOES LIVE: SAVINGS UP FOR GRABS

WITH families and individuals feeling the pinch due to rising cost of living pressures, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has today thrown his support behind a new State Government campaign to promote the many rebates and savings offered through Service NSW.

 

Mr Marshall said his new Cost of Living flyer would be hitting mailboxes across the electorate, highlighting some of the more popular and new savings currently available to families across the region.

 

“There are more than 70 programs across government agencies which aim to put hard earned dollars back in the pockets of residents and to provide stimulus for local businesses,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“While many have been around for a while, there are a number of new initiatives that have been introduced more recently to help including the $50 Stay NSW vouchers, $250 Parents NSW vouchers and additional Dine and Discover vouchers.

 

“With the current high price of fuel at the bowser, I encourage everyone who is eligible to access the Regional Seniors Travel Card, which is now in its third year.

 

“The card can be used to buy fuel at service stations, convenience stores or mixed businesses that operate with a fuel merchant category code, alongside taxi and private bus services.

 

“Not everyone who is eligible is accessing the rebates and savings available to them and so I implore those who are starting to feel the pinch to jump online and see what they can claim.”

 

Mr Marshall also encouraged locals to book an in-person appointment with a Service NSW Savings Specialists, who provide personalised assistance to find which initiatives are best suited to a family’s individual needs.

 

“On average, Savings Specialists have assisted households to put $770 back into their bank accounts,” he said.

 

“My message to local families is simple – do yourself a favour and give the Savings Finder program a go or book an appointment with a Savings Specialist.”

 

Appointments are available at Service NSW centres or via phone on 13 77 88.

 

Locals can explore the full range of options available through Savings Finder, by visiting www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/savings-finder
