Australia Post Concession Scheme
Please note changes to postage rates and concession scheme available.Australia Post launches concession postage scheme Wednesday, March 26th, 2014
Australia Post has launched a new concession postage scheme, offering cheaper stamps for customers on low incomes.
The stamps will be available from the end of this month priced at 60c for domestic services, as the standard rate for domestic letters rises 10c (or 16.7%) to 70c.
Australia Post said about 5.7m Australians were eligible to register for a MyPost Concession Account from now on.
The 60c stamps, the Post’s first ever concession stamp, will be available for the next three years. Customers will be limited to purchasing 50 of the stamps each year, but their registration will give them a MyPost concession card that entitles them to five free stamps.
Registered customers will also gain access to concession rates for some other Australia Post services and a digital mailbox, the company said. See www.auspost.com.au/mypost
