Western Australian Seniors Card members can now claim up to $400 per household towards the purchase of eligible home security equipment - as part of the 2021-22 State Budget.

 

Premier Mark McGowan today announced the return of the Safety and Security Rebate which can be claimed for the cost of purchase of equipment or installation costs by a licensed tradesperson.

 

The $12 million program will provide WA Seniors Card members with a rebate of up to $400 for the purchase and installation of devices such as:

  • home alarm and CCTV systems;

  • security door screens;

  • door and window deadlocks;

  • security window screens or shutters;

  • security sensor lights;

  • WiFi video doorbells;

  • residual current devices;

  • mains powered smoke alarms; and

  • fire extinguishers and fire blankets.

The Safety and Security Rebate was abolished in 2015 by the then Liberal National Government.

 

This commitment is part of the McGowan Government's record investment in community safety, including an additional 1,100 police officers, to help keep older Western Australians safe.

 

To meet the requirements of the Safety and Security Rebate, items purchased must meet the relevant Australian Standards, and any installation work required must be carried out by a licensed tradesperson.

 

The rebate is administered by the WA Seniors Card Centre, with more information available by calling 1800 671 233 or visiting http://www.seniorscard.wa.gov.au
