I received Pension Concession last year. Notified AGL of details October 2019. Had Electricity with AGL since 2000 and Gas with AGL since 2001. Unfortunately as I have separate account numbers AGL systems won’t process Gas concession. 
AGL kindly offered to put up my gas price by 15% summer and winter so I can get concession in winter.

 

Amy other customers with same issue?

Since my message of 12 July I have made progress.

 

Had a WebChat with Resolution Team on Monday who understood the issue.

 

Also had a call from AGL on Monday.

 

My Winter Gas Concession is now in place and I have been given a credit. Incorrect bills have been credited and reissued with the Concession applied.

 

AGL offered to refund the credit amount but I chose to leave it on the account as my next bill is due in 3 weeks.

 

Thanks AGL

Hi,

 

 I’m assuming you have notified AGL the Concession Details.

 

If so, then you have 2 options:

 

1 Wait for your next bill - you should see a Concession credit (all year round for Electricity and Winter only for Gas)

 

Or 2 Telephone AGL and confirm the concession is activated 

 

cheers

I should add that you need to make sure that both your Gas and Electricity are on the same Account Number.

I see nothing on my account as to my NSW concession grants money, where do I find it, we have been eligible since 2010 but even after checking each year I still can't find anything to show it.

Hi Lorraine,

 

The concession is not automatic. 

You need to contact AGL and provide your concession details 

 

cheers

Hi,

 

In Victoria the concession is only available to Commonwealth Concession Card holders.

 

Not sure what the rules are in NSW.

 

A simple call to AGL should sort out your eligibility
