The subsidy was due to be axed last year, but was extended due to demand.

However, the extension period is now up and seniors have only got until the end of the month to apply for up to $400 in grants.

The Safety and Security Rebate scheme delivers WA Seniors Card holders a rebate of up to $200 a household towards installing or buying home security devices. A further $200 a household is available for the purchase and installation of electrical and fire safety items. Peel Crime Prevention Unit officer in charge Sgt Paul Trimble has urged seniors to take advantage of the rebate while it lasts.

Seniors can pick up a rebate claim form from any WA Australia Post outlet or download a copy from the Department of Communities website, complete the details and attach all relevant receipts.
