Green slip refunds available now

Member for Murray Austin Evans has announced more than 17,000 motor vehicle owners across the Murray electorate will be able to access their CTP Green Slip refund from today.

The NSW Government last year overhauled the old CTP Green Slip Scheme to create a more affordable, lower cost scheme. In addition to lower premiums in 2018, the Government is providing partial refunds to the owners of vehicles across the state with insurance premiums calculated based on the cost of the old scheme.

Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello said as a result of the Government’s reforms over $15 million will be returned to vehicle owners across Southern NSW. The average refund is $33.

“The new CTP scheme is delivering a big win for motorists through lower premiums, greater protections for those injured on the road and refunds on premiums paid during 2017,” Mr Dominello said.

Mr Evans said the new CTP scheme is delivering significant savings for motorists. The average Green Slip price this year across country areas will be $423, down from $481 last year.

People with a MyServiceNSW email account can expect to receive an email advising them if they are entitled to a refund. The refund will be processed through their MyServiceNSW account and paid into a bank account of their choice.

Vehicle owners who do not have a MyServiceNSW account can check online if they are eligible for a refund here or by visiting their local Service NSW Centre before creating an account.

Refunds will be available in the coming days and weeks and are available until 30 September 2018. This is one of a raft of NSW Government measures helping to ease cost of living pressures for households. The Government has also introduced free car registration for regular toll users, cheaper hospital car parking, and the FuelCheck app.

Refunds will be available online at service.nsw.gov.au/greensliprefund during the evening from 7pm until 7am from Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday.
