The NSW Government has a $2 million program to expand the number and variety of discounts available to holders of a NSW Seniors Card.
Last week the Minister for Ageing announced a partnership with OPSM which will see a time limited offer with OPSM of 20 per cent off frames and 20 per cent off lenses. This discount is available to all Seniors Card holders across NSW for six weeks from Friday, 28 August, to 7 October, 2015.
If you have a Seniors Card or know someone who can benefit, please make sure purchases are made by 7 October to get the discount, I hope both the saving and the new eyewear purchased will make a positive difference.
The NSW Seniors card is available to NSW permanent residents aged 60 or over, who do no more than 20 hours of paid work a week on average across a 12 month period. More information including online application can be found at www.seniorscard.nsw.gov.au or you can contact tel: 13 77 88.
