Centrelink issues two cards that are eligible for Victorian Government concessions. These are the Pensioner Concession Card¬†and the Health Care Card. The Department of Veterans Affairs also issues two types of card - a Pensioner Concession Card and a Gold Card. ¬†These concessions are administered under strict guidelines on behalf of the Department of Human Services by public utilities such as North East Water.
