Courses for Seniors
Introduction to NSW Senior Card Website
Free* for Seniors 60+
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
Any Australian citizen residing in NSW who is 60 years or over and who works an average of 20 hours a week or less over a 12-month period is eligible for a Seniors Card, even those still partially employed. For those who are 60 years or over and who work more than an average of 20 hours a week over a 12-month period is eligible for a Senior Savers Card. If this description fits you, then this workshop is for you. All Seniors Card/Senior Savers Card holders and people eligible for a Seniors Card/Senior Savers Card can find the website useful. In this workshop we will assume that you’ve used the internet at least a little bit – enough to visit a website, click on a link and fill in an online form. You don’t have to be any kind of expert – even a very basic knowledge of the internet will get you through!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
In order to complete this workshop, you will need a computer or tablet with an internet connection and a web browser such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Apple Safari. Throughout the guide we will assume you’re using Microsoft Edge, which is the browser that comes pre-installed on Windows Computers. Other browsers might be slightly different (for example, the wording on the prompts might vary, or the Favourites/Bookmarks button may be in a slightly different place), but in general the browsers all operate very similarly and you shouldn’t have any problems.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
This workshop is designed to help you make the most of the Seniors Card website. We’ll start with a walkthrough of some of the basic tasks you might want to accomplish using the website, such as applying for the Seniors Card and Senior Savers Card, getting a replacement card or changing some of the site settings. We’ll then look into features you’re probably most interested in, such as how to search for discounts. We’ll cover both the process of using the website’s search function as well as downloading a local directory for your area. We’ll also cover signing up for the newsletter.
