On average, eligible customers are walking away with more than $500 back in their pockets through the service. Examples of rebates and savings include CTP refunds, Active Kids vouchers and free rego for regular toll users.
Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello and Minister for Multiculturalism Ray Williams on Wednesday 24 October, 2018 hosted a press conference at NSW Parliament with multicultural media to ensure all communities are aware of the service.
“The Cost of Living Service has been extremely successful, with over 90 per cent of people who attend an appointment walking away with extra money in their pocket,” Mr Dominello said.
“This initiative really does take Service NSW to the next level. No longer is it just a one-stop shop for transactions and licences, now it’s also a one-stop shop for household savings.”
Mr Williams said: “Customers can access the Cost of Living service by contacting Service NSW with the option of using an interpreter through the National Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450 and be directed to Service NSW on 13 77 88.”
“By the end of October, Service NSW will have rolled out the Cost of the Living appointment service in more than 60 service centres across NSW, making it easier for families and individuals to potentially save hundreds of dollars.”
To find savings online or to book an appointment with a Cost of Living specialist, customers can select a language translation of the Cost of Living information on the Service NSW website at www.service.nsw.gov.au.
The NSW Government offers a raft of cost of living rebates and savings including the FuelCheck app, public transport concessions, energy rebates and cheaper Green Slips.
