How to claim a rebate

  • Buy and/or install the eligible products in your home.
  • Complete a Safety and Security Rebate Claim Form (PDF 500KB).
  • Attach copies of all dated receipts showing proof of purchase and/or installation.  Since this is a one-off rebate per category, if you claim less than $200 in either the Personal Safety Device or Home Security categories you cannot make another claim. If you want to claim the full $200 for each category, you may wish to purchase items gradually and save all receipts until you can claim the maximum rebate.
  • Make sure the Seniors Card Centre has your current and correct bank account details to make payment to you.
  • Mail your claim form to WA Seniors Card Centre, Locked Bag 3, Perth Business Centre, WA, 6849, or you can drop it in to the WA Seniors Card Centre, Level 2, 140 William Street Perth 6000 (Above Perth Underground Railway Station, entry from Murray Street Mall). 

Please note: The Safety and Security Rebate will close on 30 June 2015. New applications must be lodged on or before 30 June 2015.
