Applying for pensioner rebate

THE process of applying for a rebate varies from category to category so it is important to check out each section carefully and follow the steps outlined.

Some rebates are awarded automatically while you will have to apply for others.




Who qualifies for a rebate?

PENSIONERS

TWO CATEGORIES OF PENSIONERS 

This is not an automatic rebate as there are two categories of pensioners.

1. 60 - 69 Years Old

Application Form
The pensioner application form may also be downloaded from the website.

The City is sensitive to the needs of its senior citizens. Registered property owners who are pensioners may apply for a reduction of rates, subject to certain criteria. Pensioner's rebate application forms are available from any municipal Customer Service Centre.

There are 3 categories of pensioners defined in this category:

  • Pensioners dependent on a national security grant – 100 percent rebate (subject to criteria);
  • Pensioners whose gross monthly earnings are less than R7 850 a month – 100 percent rebate (subject to criteria);
  • Pensioners whose gross monthly earnings are higher than R7 850 but less than R13 458 a month – 50 percent rebate (subject to criteria).

Pensioner criteria:

  • You are the owner of the property in respect of which the rates are charged;
  • You live on the property;
  • You must be at least 60 years old;
  • The total value of the property as per the General Valuation Roll, that is, the land plus the improvements, may not exceed R2 000 000.
