How to apply

Service Tasmania transaction

You can apply for a Tasmanian Seniors Card over the counter at any Service Tasmania Shop.

Once the application form is completed, return it to a Customer Service Officer at Service Tasmania with three original pieces of identification from the list below, one must have your date of birth and one must provide proof of your Tasmanian address.

  • Australian Birth certificate (extract acceptable) or Australian Citizenship papers
  • Passport
  • Driver's licence or Firearms licence
  • Medicare Card
  • Credit card/debit card with your signature
  • Department of Veterans Affairs Card or Centrelink Aged Pension Card
  • Change of Name or Marriage Certificate (from Births, Deaths and Marriages) to prove any name change
  • Recent bank statement or utility account with current residential address 

The Customer Service Officer will process your application and give you the approved form with the receipt and Seniors Card number imprinted on it. This is your temporary Seniors Card which can be used immediately, in Tasmania only.

Please allow up to 28 days for delivery of your permanent Seniors Card which can be used interstate as well as in Tasmania.

You can download and print a copy of our Card holder application from here.  You will still need to take your completed application form along with your three pieces of evidence to any of the Service Tasmania Shops for processing.
