Households have given the NSW Government’s cost of living programs the thumbs up, with $1.5 billion saved state wide since July last year.

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the figures released will be a great source of encouragement for families to check their eligibility for savings.

“This is great news for anyone living in our larger towns like Tamworth, Gunnedah, Manilla, Walcha, Werris Creek or Barraba to the smaller communities like Nundle, Bendemeer, Moonbi or Carroll.

“There are more than 70 rebates and savings available across Government that could potentially save households hundreds of dollars a year.

“We are committed to easing cost of living pressure for families which is why we transformed Service NSW into a one-stop shop for household savings.

“Whether it’s a $100 Creative Kids voucher, a Senior Savers Card or a better energy deal, hip pocket relief is available.

“Already Cost of Living appointments at the Tamworth Service Centre have saved locals $86,795 while appointments the Gunnedah Service Centre have made savings of $4,095.

“This is why it is so worthwhile. Book an appointment at either of these service centres, it can make such a difference in some of your everyday expenses.

“Service NSW continues to be a game-changer on how customers interact and transact with government, and now we are bringing another tremendous service to this successful one-stop shop model.

“Checking your eligibility and making a saving is simple and easy and can be done online or in person at an appointment with a cost of living specialist at Service NSW,” Mr Anderson concluded.
