The NSW Government’s highly popular Cost of Living Service will be expanded, thanks to this year’s NSW Budget.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said 50 new Cost of Living Specialists will be hired and deployed to Service Centres across NSW, including on the Central Coast.

“These fantastic staff can help residents identify their eligibility for savings and help them claim them,” Mr Crouch said.

“In a single appointment, one Central Coast resident saved $14,000 thanks to the work of Service NSW Erina’s Cost of Living Specialist, Tiffany.

“We want to continue making it simple for people to find and receive rebates and savings from the NSW Government, and receive personalised face-to-face support.”

Mr Crouch said the average saving per Cost of Living appointment is almost $600 and the total savings exceed $2.5 million.

“There are 70 different cost of living rebates and savings available from Service NSW, which can be accessed online or by sitting down and reviewing your bills with a Cost of Living Specialist,” Mr Crouch said.

“Service NSW takes the hassle out of finding savings by putting all the relevant information under the one roof, and we have five local Service Centres at Erina, Gosford, Toukley, Tuggerah and Woy Woy.”
