You could also be missing out on an energy rebate that will take a further $231 off your electricity bill. The first step to significant savings is to compare energy providers.
Why Australian seniors shouldn’t be overpaying for gas or electricity
Australian Seniors are facing financial pressure as the cost of living continues to rise* for both self-funded retirees and aged pensioners. And with Aussies paying some of the highest energy rates in the world**, there’s little relief in sight.
That’s why it’s so important to do your homework when it comes to choosing an energy provider. In fact, comparing energy providers at least every 12 to 24 months could save you hundreds of dollars every year.
But comparing energy providers is only the first step to securing a better deal. You may also be able to access an energy concession for seniors.
