Green light for green slip refunds

Start the conversation

The Minister for Customer Service has advised the owners of motor vehicles in NSW to check their eligibility for a CTP Green Slip refund as more than $30 million in refunds has not been claimed.

The Minister, Victor Dominello said about 2.8 million policyholders had already claimed $156 million, with the deadline for claiming a refund extended one final time from 30 June to 30 September this year.

“We know that cost of living is a big issue facing households, which is why we delivered this refund, potentially worth up to $120 per refund,” Mr Dominello said.

“Claiming a refund is simple and easy and can be done via Service NSW either online, over the phone or in store.”

He said motorists would be given an extra three months to claim their refund. A decision on how unclaimed monies would be returned to motorists would be confirmed following consultation with NRMA and Choice.

Spokesperson for NRMA, Peter Khoury said the organisation was urging all motorists to take a few minutes to get online or call, and get their refund if they were eligible.

“A one-off cash injection into the bank account of up to $120 will go a long way to helping the family budget and it would be a shame for people to miss out,” Mr Khoury said.

The suburb with the most money unclaimed was Liverpool with $423,000 outstanding, followed by Campbelltown ($311,000) and Greystanes ($258,000).
